A Catholic Priest, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, has said that whatever he says during his sermons and outside it is the oracle of God and that whoever challenges it does so at his peril.
Reacting to a statement by the Presidency that he has been attacking President Muhammadu Buhari because he could not get contract from his government, Mbaka described such attack on him as crocodiles, adding that “God is ready for them.”
Father Mbaka, founder of Adoration Ministry, spoke today, May 3 at a sermon at the Ministry in Enugu, thanking Garba Shehu, special assistant to the President on media and publicity, who issued the presidency’s statement for telling the world that the Federal Government is not paying or giving him anything.
“I am a messenger of God, so you should be stupid to be attacking a messenger from God no matter who you are. God is above all of us. You don’t feel happy that God is revealing secrets to you; instead of destroying you silently, he decided to inform you where you are not doing well. So why should Mbaka be attacked by any reasonable human being?
“Whether you call your name Shehu or what, there is no need for that. I don’t explain what I have said once it is from the Oracle of God. Nigeria is a country where you say the truth and get attacked by crocodiles who want to eat the fishes in the fish pond.
“All those attacking men of God are crocodiles, but God is ready for them. I am not discouraged, I have been waiting for them to challenge anything I say. You allow the truth to be hidden then you start attacking the person who said the truth. You don’t attack the messenger.
“Challenge the truth whether there is insecurity in the country or not, whether there are good hospitals in the country or not. God loves us so much and saved us from coronavirus, but our leaders are the coronavirus we are suffering from.
“Are we not hungry? Is there employment opportunities for the youths as it ought to be? The money they are packing for election if they use it to build industry wouldn’t our youths have places to work?
“They talked about giving Fr Mbaka a contract. I don’t want to talk about that because it is a laughable childish accusation. Whosoever that is saying that is a shame to himself and shame to the people he is representing.
