The sermon where Father Mbaka told President Muhammadu Buhari the home truth about Nigerians immersed in poverty and going hungry has largely garnered approval.
Many agree with his position, and are glad that at least one of Buhari’s supporters is telling him that Nigerians are truly suffering. That he has no chance of winning an election in 2019 if the economy fails.
Here is the video of the sermon:
The issue is that Mbaka is speaking as the Spirit leads him – there is hunger everywhere. My job is to tell leaders the truth, the landlords are crying, the tenants are lamenting, sellers are crying, buyers are lamenting – there is hunger on the streets.
I can’t keep quiet when things are going wrong.
I am telling the President to look around him and know those who are advising him rightly and those who are telling him that there is no trouble.
The President should know that there is trouble – if things continue like this, in the next election, nobody will vote for him.
Whether they like it or not, I am speaking the raw truth.
If the President should have somebody like me and he cannot be talking with me, then there is a problem.
There is a problem somewhere; somebody who can advise you without asking for anything and he is representing the poor masses in the country and he won’t tell you lies.
He will praise you when you are doing well and when you are not doing well, he will look at you in the face and tell you.
I don’t need the President; I need God, I need the Holy Spirit, I need Jesus; there is suffering everywhere, people are suffering.
To feed is now a problem, and an hungry man is an angry man. Hunger and anger will lead to danger.
So, let him know whether he can do away with some advisers around him and bring in the people who are experts in economic revamp.
There are people who are experts in that; let them begin to empower people, people are not empowered, they are still walking around in vicious circles, planning and planning and planning.
Hunger is everywhere, many neighbours don’t eat again, many are being attacked by hunger, hunger is becoming a normal thing and there are people responsible for this.
Mortuary and ambulance business is now thriving because many cannot afford drugs.
In today’s Nigeria, many are becoming hawkers, who will buy from you? With what?
Everyday, more pipelines are being blown, the Avengers are at work and up till now, there is no solution.
You know when certain things begin to happen, you begin to ask some questions, somebody like me will begin to ask – when will this end?
If it continues in the next three months, there will be no money to pay salaries – the vicious effect is disastrous and when salaries cannot be paid, teachers will come home, students will stop going to school, there will be more kidnappings, more hooliganism, more armed robbery, more prostitution, immorality will be on the increase.”
So, the President should sit up – there is a red light blinking on the country.
The issue of Saraki and Ekweremadu, nobody wants to listen to such stories any more, whether Saraki is the President of the Senate or Ekweremadu is not this or that, the countrymen are tired of such stories.
We need economic experts, gurus, sages that are sincere, who can come in and think about our economic revamp and judicial reformation.
And listed are some of the comments :
Father Mbaka speaks the truth. There is poverty in Nigeria. The President is working,but is it the right steps he is taking now?

prettywills1: True…too much hunger..I can’t vote for him if there’s no changes by end of this year
blackice17I don’t know why the Catholic Church is allowing this man to insult the great church. He should be recalled ASAP and dismissed!!

jamosmart84: Men Of God should Just stay out Of politics….. Cos e come dey Look As If dis REV. Don dey Change His tone/ side…..well like he Said “it’s the lord speaking thru Him”
ojora1@adetobikool: this guy dey yarn abeg. Just the whole truth. Nobody cares about gov officials being caught with 2bil naira and arrested then approved bail in 24hrs and the case goes on for years. You want to fight corruption then make the judiciary function well and most. Everything’s getting worse and all we hear is saraki today, fayose tomorrow. I’m tired and i’m sure the masses are tired also
flakkie_tyfather mbaka always on point. It’s almost like we have no president. What exactly is Buhari doing there? Saraki’s case has been on since last year, and that’s just one person. He’s still feeling cool cos he knows even till 2019, nothing will be done to him. I supported PMB in 2015 cos Jonathan was a colossal disgrace. However, if things do not change for the better anytime soon, na so PMB go take comot too
silvakite: Mbaka tell us the next president, since you are good at that, you acting as if you never see this coming,
officialshimgbam: Mbaka no go kill person for that naija mi country. Smh
fagbem: The suffering is much tho😢,I think I’ll agree with father mbaka on this
champagnemami_59: Wasn’t he just supporting him few weeks ago? 😕 catholics come and carry your father oh. He’s misbehaving
klotemple: Mbaka ,we will vote buhari even for a 3rd term, don’t let the devil use u, he has used u before resist him this time. noise maker the Catholic Church should deal proper with this goon knuckle headed attention seeker
