President Buhari has revealed that popular outspoken Catholic Priest, Father Mbaka is angry at him because he was not awarded Federal Government contracts when he came visiting.
Father Mbaka, who has been vociferous in his call for President Buhari’s resignation was said to have visited the Aso Rock villa with three contractors in a bid to lobby for contracts as compensation for his support for the President during his campaigns.
President Buhari made this revelation through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu on Friday evening via his Twitter page.

An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the Presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.
Here is the point of departure: 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.
Anyone familiar with President Buhari knows that he doesn’t break the laid down rules in dealing with contracts or any other government business for that matter. He requested the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with laid down rules.
Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka.
