‘One Kobo Of Buhari’s Money Has Never Entered My Hand’ – Reverend Father Mbaka



Ejike Mbaka, spiritual director of the Adoration Ministries Enugu (AMEN), says God has blessed him to the extent that he does not curry favour from politicians who come to him for prayers.

Mbaka said that as at the time he prophesied that President Muhammadu Buhari would emerge victorious in the 2015 election, he had not met the president; and when he finally met him, he did not “collect a kobo from him but demanded good governance for Nigeria”.

He was speaking with reporters for the first interview since his transfer from Christ The King Parish, GRA Enugu.

“When eventually I met Buhari when I went for prayers at Aso Rock, what I demanded from him was good governance for Nigeria,” he said. “I didn’t ask him to give me one kobo. One kobo of Buhari has never entered my hand.”

Mbaka said God had a reason for taking him to Our Lady Parish in Emene, a suburb of Enugu. His position this time around was different from that of Saturday when he was departing from Christ The King Parish where he served for over 20 years. The cleric had nursed concern on where the assets of his ministry would be kept, saying he would suffer.

“I am going to suffer because I have no place to lay my head; I am going to suffer because I have no place to keep the ministry’s assets. The Adoration Ministry is passing through suffering right now,” he had said. But while speaking at an interactive session with journalists, he appeared to have accepted the transfer with equanimity.

“God is wonderful. You can see that I am smiling, filled with cheer and the joy of the Lord. I have the feeling that God’s hand is in my going out of GRA. No matter what caused it, no matter how it was caused, I am seeing everything as the will of God,” he said. “When I remember that my providing God is with me and for me, I am filled with joy and comforted.

The ways of God are divine and mysterious and at times when he wants to do a thing, we humans may not understand it. We may be seeing the external but God who sees the future planned and packaged everything for us.

“When we were leaving the GRA on Saturday, the worshipers in the Adoration Ministry were filled with mixed feelings. I was also filled with thoughts of where to keep the ministry’s assets because this is a ministry God has blessed. I am not talking about my personal assets, which basically are books and clothes.

“But I am happy that I am here, although the place I’m posted cannot contain the assets of the ministry, but we have to get going. As it is, I am joyful and the vision and passion have hiked, the vibration is all over and I want to tell you that starting from now, it is no longer going to be the adoration ministry that people knew before now in Jesus name, Amen.”
