Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has been told by Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, located in Enugu to apologise to him.
The cleric also warned Garba Shehu to trade with caution, adding that the President’s mouthpiece can also be killed by rampaging bandits.
Father Mbaka made the demand following Shehu’s recent claims that the clergyman came to Buhari begging for contracts and was disappointed.
Recall that the Presidency, through Mr. Shehu had accused Mbaka of making the call now because he was denied a contract by Buhari.
Mbaka has now described Shehu’s claims as laughable, saying, “Garba Shehu that is talking, the bandits can kill him too. No amount of security can save them if things get worse.
“They have shown they don’t have reward mechanism. Shehu should be apologising to me.
“They are busy branding communities and states terrorists. If Kaduna, Benue, and other places are branded terrorist states, will Nigeria not be branded a terrorist country?”
Meanwhile, Fr. Mbaka has formally responded to the accusation of his begging for contract from Buhari as revealed by Garuba Shehu.
While speaking on Sunday at the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, the cleric confirmed that he took three contractors to tackle insecurity during Buhari’s first term not for himself.
According to him, he had no personal relationship with the three men that he took to the presidency.
