Following his widely publicised sermon on New Year’s Eve that tore President Goodluck Jonathan’s policies to pieces, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka has been recorded hitting the president hard again, and this time his wife, Dame Patience Jonathan, was not spared.
He stated during a recent sermon that whatever prophesies he revealed were motivated by the Holy Spirit, and not by monetary inducements of any kind.
Speaking in both the English and Igbo languages, Mbaka dismissed suggestions that he is a two-faced individual because he received the first lady in his ministry a few weeks before his controversial outburst.
While He went ahead to say anyone who has donated money to his ministry, and is not happy about it, should send in their account numbers, and he would wire the money back to them.
Mbaka, reacting to the criticisms, quoted a verse in the bible and gave a biblical instance where God supported one of his prophets and later withdrew the support because of the deeds of the prophet.
He further revealed that when he met both President Jonathan and his wife, they refused his request to give him their phone numbers so he could reach them whenever he has a revelation about them or the country.
He also denied rumours that he was bribed by opposition politicians to say all he did at the New Year’s Eve service, saying, “I don’t know Buhari, I have never met him”.
Mbaka’s sermon had drawn criticism from various Nigerians including his primary constituency, the Catholic Church; ex-militant Asari Dokubo, retired Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Cardinal Olubunmi Okogie and the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan.
