'Mischief makers' saw vision on Buhari's health, not me, Mbaka rants

Controversial Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Thursday, denied his reported vision about the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He alleged that some mischief makers were trying to cause disaffection between him and the President.
Mbaka was reacting to media reports, which quoted him as saying that Buhari’s chances of surviving an ear infection, over which he undertook a foreign medical trip, was slim.

It would be recalled that Mbaka was widely reported to have shared a vision during his Adoration Programme in Enugu over health of the President shortly after he left for the UK for treatment.

He was also reported to have claimed that some people were serving as a wedge between him and the President, frustrating his efforts to reach him.

However, Mbaka, in a statement signed by his media adviser, Ike Ugwuoke, said he did not make any negative prophecy on Buhari’s health, as was suggested in several quarters, adding that he merely
responded to claims by some Nigerian doctors concerning the President’s ailment.

The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to a report in a section of the media alleging that Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria, said that President of the Federal Republic Muhammadu Buhari, had slim chances of surviving from his ill health.

“The truth is that there were media reports, making fuss about Mr. President’s health and insinuating Mr. President’s slim chances of recovering from his ill health, published immediately the President went on vacation.

“Fr. Mbaka referring to the said media report during his prayers for the sick in the Ministry, led his congregation to pray for Mr. President’s healing and health, after which there were lots of testimonies from the sick that were healed of blindness, elephantiasis, deafness, cancer, tumor and all other diverse healings at the end of the prayer session.”

“While we enjoin all patriotic citizens of this country to continue to pray for the good of the nation and her leaders, we restate our call on the meddlesome interlopers who busy themselves with arm-twisting issues arising from the Ministry for whatever ends to desist from their wild goose chase, have a rethink and rather partake in the blessings imminent in spreading the good news of signs, wonders and miracles of God in the Ministry”, the statement said.
