Renowned Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has urged
President Goodluck Jonathan to abandon his re-election bid so that the
All Progressives Congress candidate, Maj.Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)
can emerge the winner of the presidential election next month.
Mbaka, who heads the popular Catholic Adoration Centre in Enugu, said
this in his New Year sermon titled “From Good luck to Bad luck,” while
addressing thousands of parishioners on Thursday.
He urged all well-meaning Nigerians to vote for Buhari on February 14.
According to the cleric, Jonathan has disappointed Nigerians and cannot deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
Mbaka subsequently knelt down in front of the altar, cried and asked
God to give Nigeria a good leader and not Jonathan. He used the
opportunity to beg Nigerians to vote wisely in the forthcoming
He said, “I love President Goodluck Jonathan and I used to be his
ardent fan, but I want good for my people and that’s why I want
Nigerians to vote out Goodluck Jonathan and vote General Muhammad
Buhari. I don’t care if Buhari is a Muslim and from the North; all I
care about is that Buhari can save Nigeria.”
