Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi has urged Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Nigeria, to cease criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.
On Sunday, October 24, he made the appeal at the Adoration Ministry’s annual harvest, thanksgiving, and bazaar.
According to Punch, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State followed Umahi, who is the Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum.
During the thanksgiving service, Umahi donated?30 million, 200 yams, and 100 sacks of rice, and declared that Buhari was striving to reroute the nation’s economy to alleviate poverty.
“Those elected to positions of leadership should deliver good governance to the people who chose them,” he said.
Governors, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and other notable individuals in the zone, according to Umahi, were working to have Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, released from custody as soon as possible.
Fr. Mbaka notably backed Buhari in the 2015 election, but has subsequently reversed his position, blaming the Nigerian leader for the country’s economic woes.
