Enugu Catholic priest, who predicted the outcome of the 2015 presidential election, Rev’d. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has observed that Nigerians were yet to experience the real change being midwived by President Muhammadu Buhari because some strategic positions were still occupied by the same people who milked the country dry in the past.
Stressing that the president was not totally free from the grip of those who ran the country aground in the past, he averred that “The government we are experiencing is not yet a Buharinised government.”
Mbaka stated this to newsmen in Enugu during the graduation of Niger Delta youths, who trained at Innoson Plastic Factory under Federal Government’s Amnesty Programme, explaining that Buhari currently works with some people who do not want him to succeed in office and are desperate to pull him down.
Stating that he was yet to see the change he wants in Nigeria through the present government, he, however acknowledged that it was too early to give Buhari’s regime a dispassionate assessment, adding that Nigerians should give the President more time.
“Many people who are in different strategic positions are still the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) people and Buhari may not even know and even some people who are working around him are working to pull him down.
“Buhari means well, Buhari is a good man, Buhari is God-sent for this country but, I am telling you that there are crocodiles in the fish pond.
“Buhari may not know that he is feeding not the fish in the fishpond but crocodiles that are even feeding on the fishes!”
The Catholic priest urged Nigerians to be prayerful to counter the activities of those he said were plotting to break the country and take over power.
His words, “Nigerians should go on their knees and pray for divine intervention because apart from God, we are going to see horrible things.
“The way these people are ganging up, they want to break Nigeria and take over power and take us back to where we were coming from. I pray it shall be well with Nigeria and it shall be well with Nigerians.”
Mbaka had, a month ago came down hard on the Buhari regime, saying there was hunger in the land and that the President may not get the nod of Nigerians to get another term in office if the trend continues.
