The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, has called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over the killings in the land.
The cleric regretted that the Nigerian leader could maintain grave silence in the midst of the unsavoury development, insisting that he may have lost touch with realities.
Speaking in Enugu, he told his congregation that no civilised leader would remain in power with the spate of violence in the country. Mbaka said:
“How can people be dying and the chief security officer of the country would be sitting down without making any comment. Gunmen attacking people everywhere. Buhari should have resigned honourably following his (alleged) failure as a leader. Let me tell you that if it were in a civilised country, President Buhari would have resigned by now. So, it is amazing that he has chosen to sit tight while people are dying daily.”xhttps://06347043b96c2a9e8f780a5e863b6c41.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
Calling on the National Assembly to impeach the President, the Catholic priest submitted that Nigerians were facing intense poverty and insecurity.
He continued: “Nigerians are crying because there’s no security in the country. The National Assembly should impeach the President if he doesn’t resign.”
Mbaka warned the lawmakers that if they failed to unseat the Nigerian leader, “something worse than what they can never imagine” would happen to them.
He stressed that the nation could not continue this way cautioning: “Enough has to be enough. There is time for everything.” He beseeched God to change the hearts of Nigerian leaders, wondering how someone could become a billionaire with the commonwealth of the people.
The clergy also deplored the activities of nomads, urging Christian leaders to pray for divine intervention.
“I plead that church leaders should understand me as a messenger of God and stop attacking me.”
“When gunmen begin to strike inside the church, they will begin to kill one man of God or the other or even members,” he added.
