The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry (AMEN), Father Ejike Mbaka, has admitted meeting President Muhammadu Buhari with three persons over a contract that has become controversial.
Although the Catholic priest denied meeting the president for any personal gain, he admitted during his sermon on Sunday that the deal in question was a “contract of securing the country”.
He also said the meeting was during Buhari’s first term when he went to “hand over” three white men he never knew but who said “they had the platform to end insecurity in this country under one month”.
The presidency had accused the cleric of seeking Buhari’s removal as president because he was rebuffed after seeking government contracts.
According to Garba Shehu, the presidential spokesman that made the allegation, “Father Mbaka asked for a meeting and to the shock of Presidential Aides, he came accompanied by three contractors. The President graciously allowed them in, and to everyone’s surprise, Father Mbaka asked for contracts as compensation for his support”.
