Former Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Adamu Garba says Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka did not do anything wrong by asking for government contracts.
His comment comes after Garba Shehu, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, said that Father Mbaka was angry because he didn’t get contract awards he requested for which was why he demanded Buhari’s resignation.
According to a statement Shehu released on Friday, Mbaka came to the Presidential Villa with three contractors, but their attempt to convince the president into influencing government projects in their favour failed.
Reacting to the statement, Adamu said that Mbaka wasn’t wrong for going to see President Buhari with contractors.
He said that the concerns should have been about the competency of the contractors, not the visit. The APC chieftain wrote; ”There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Rev. Father Mbaka going to see the President with contractors. The questions should be on the competency or otherwise of the contractors not the visit
Father Mbaka attempted to make someone’s life richer. This is far better than blackmailing”
