Enugu Catholic Priest, the Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has described the recent negative prediction attributed to him on President Muhammadu Buhari’s ill health as the handiwork of mischief- makers, who were bent on causing disaffection between him and the president.
Mbaka said that contrary to earlier media reports that he made negative predictions concerning the President’s ill health, he merely alluded to the reported claims by doctors.
The priest, who is in charge of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria, spoke through his media chief, Barr. Ike Maximus Ugwuoke, insisting that some Nigerians were trying to cause disaffection between him and the Presidency.
According to him, “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 the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has slim chances of surviving from his ill health.
“The true fact 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 prayed with the worshippers of the ministry 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.”
He quoted Mbaka as saying that, “They say the sickness is E.N.T. When it affects, the ear, it affects the nose and affects the neck. We pray for our President and any one that is suffering such a dangerous disease.
“We lift our healing hands for divine healing upon our president. Wherever he is, may he be healed in Jesus’ name.
“The doctors in Nigeria are nursing fear that he may not survive but we have a healing God. His name is specialist in impossibilities.”
He added that some persons were nose-diving in the affairs of the ministry with a view to causing unnecessary rift between the ministry and the Presidency.
“While we enjoin all patriotic citizens of this country to continue to pray for the good of the nation and her leaders, we reiterate our call on the meddlesome ones, 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”, he added.
