PRESIDENT BUHARI RECEIVES REV FR MBAKA. R-L: President Muhammadu Buhari and Rev Father Mbaka during an audience with President Buhari at the State House, DEC 18 2015.
The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has advised Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari not to marginalise any part of the country in his appointments.
There have been outrage across the nation over lopsided appointments made by Buhari since he took over power as he is seen to be favouring the north in his appointments.
Mbaka, in a statement on Saturday by his media aide, Maximus Ugwuoke, debunked claims that Mbaka attacked Buhari, but noted that he only lamented the hardship and hunger in the land.
In the statement, Mbaka advised Buhari to be careful about how he appointed people to prominent positions, so that no region would appear marginalised, as it happened in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation board and charged the president to make sure that those around him were not misguiding him.
He also advised the president on human empowerment and making sure that those who worked for him (Buhari) during the election ought to be empowered, as one good turn deserved another.
“Fr. Mbaka merely reinstated the obvious sufferings that Nigerian are facing (which even the President himself had at points acknowledged and sued for patience and perseverance) and advised the President on the ways to tackle it, that is, by engaging economic gurus and listening to good advisers,” the statement said.
Mbaka pleaded the president to begin a war against hunger, as many were dying hopelessly, stressing that if the hunger, anger and danger continued, Nigerians might not vote for him again, as they would mistake him for the cause of these maladies while in fact he is a solution.
