Presidency To Rev. Mbaka: You’l l Be Remembered For Courageously Speaking Truth To Power

Rev Mbaka
The Presidency has said that the fiery Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka will be remembered for courageously speaking truth to power even at great risks to his security.

The Presidency recognized the patriotism he exhibited in the build-up to the 2015 general elections even as it acknowledged that Mbaka chose the path of honesty, despite knowing that it could attract hostility from those it described as “leaders detached from reality.”

In a statement issued today by the senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, the Presidency felicitated with the Reverend who is the leader of the Adoration Ministries Enugu, Nigeria, on the occasion of his 20th priestly ordination.
The statement said that the priest’s courageous action while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was still in power, was a clear testimony that religious leaders are the custodian of truth and morals in society.
it stressed that the decision by Mbaka to identify with the masses and uphold the struggle for improved governance was enviable, and expressed satisfaction with the priest’s sincere comments and patriotic disposition over the state of the nation at the heat of the electioneering period.
The Presidency then prayed to God to grant the Catholic parson greater wisdom, good health and long life, as well as a continued resolve to serve humanity. [myad]
