CNPP Agrees With Mbaka On Alleged Plot to Assassinate Buhari
Following claims by the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, that there would be plots to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari over his war on corruption, the Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has backed the cleric.
The National Publicity Secretary of the CNPP, Osita Okechukwu, in a statement on Saturday, reacted to Mbaka’s prophecy, noting that “when you’re fighting corruption, corruption will fight back.”
Osita, who is also the spokesman of South-East Caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC), told Sunday Tribune that he had joined Fr. Mbaka in praying that the hands of the enemies of progress would not touch President Buhari in his march to move the nation forward.
Osita further said that Ndigbo, Yoruba, Hausa and hundreds of other ethnic groups in Nigeria had been marginalised by the predatory regime of the tiny island of the rich, saying: “It’s their looting, which simulated the gross unemployment, dilapidated federal and states roads and collapse of industries. It’s this tiny island of the rich that corrupted our system and rendered our infrastructure comatose. These are the people Mr President is trying to recover our looted funds from.”
Fr. Mbaka had disclosed on Friday in his New Year message that there would be plots to kill Buhari but the plots would fail.
Speaking at his Adoration Ministry ground, Mbaka said: “No matter how malignant the problem is, God says He will be in charge. Fellow Nigerians, let us wait upon God; I have a new message; I’m blessing and covering the message we are giving now in the prophetic name of Jesus. Father, speak now as your servant listens.
“My beloved Nigerians, those who led us from last year downwards, they have killed this country; none of them is qualified to stay in this country by now, both the president, the Senators, the House of Representatives members, the chairmen of local governments, the governors, they are wicked. It doesn’t matter the man of God they worship with; I tell you, before God and man, all of them are wicked; they hate this country, they succeeded in removing the liver, kidney and cardiovascular system of this country and handed over to President Buhari the shambles, skeletal organs of this country; a nation that is in coma.
“Nigeria, as we speak now, economically and security-wise, is in the intensive care unit; if the oxygen is removed, Nigeria will die. People of God prayed from here and there and God gave us Buhari. God has told us that Buhari is prayer answered; President Buhari is an answered prayer; whether you hate him or like him, Buhari is prayer answered. The Bishops of Nigeria, the Catholic Bishops prayed against bribery and corruption and this president came with a charter that has to do with war against corruption; all the prayers we have been doing about bribery and corruption, God answered it in Buhari who decided not to discriminate; there is nothing like religious or political discrimination in Buhari’s government.
“He needs all the support, unstoppable support; spiritual and otherwise; because if he is not the man in power now, had it been the last regime continued, by now, Nigeria would be for sale. I am not a sycophant; but I want to tell you that so far God is happy and he who God has blessed none can curse. Many people are planning to kill Buhari; there are many plans on how to eliminate his life so that corruption will continue; so that embezzlement will continue. But I speak to Buhari that God who put you there will protect you. Be firm, remain resolute, don’t be intimidated; President Buhari, God and his people are behind you, you are the answer to the prayer of His people.”
