Catholic Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry has demanded the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari over the high level of insecurity across the country.

Mr Mbaka, in a video addressing his congregants, wondered why President Buhari would keep quiet while Nigerians cry over ongoing wanton killings.

He said, “We are crying because our leaders have failed us. Let me tell you, if it is in a civilised country by now, President Muhammadu Buhari would have resigned. Quote me anywhere and let the whole world hear it. By now, with what is happening, President Muhammadu Buhari should resign.

“All those that will fight what I’m saying now will eventually suffer the wrath. It is either Buhari resign or be impeached.”

The Catholic priest had supported Mr Buhari’s election in 2015 and paid the president a visit in 2019.

“I know that many people will begin to fight it. But Mbaka, did you not pray for Buhari. Did Samuel not anoint Saul? What are you talking about? Am I the creator of Buhari?”

“I pray that the church leadership will understand me as a messenger of God and not begin to attack me because the danger is going to affect the church,” he explained.

Speaking further, he warned other clergymen of an impending doom likely to befall churches.

“When gunmen begin to strike inside the church, they will begin to kill one man of God or the other or even members of the church. Who will go to church again? The priests will lose their job. The bishops will lose their jobs. So you better keep quiet or support what I’m saying.”
