Fr. Mbaka blasts Buhari, Emefiele over Naira re-design

Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, following the current hardship posed by the Naira re-design policy by the apex bank.

In a recent sermon, the fiery cleric said though the CBN might have good intentions for introducing the re-designing of the Naira, but “the timing is very wrong” adding that “Nigerians are now suffering” following the scarcity of the new notes.


He said, “People (Nigerians) are suffering. People will suffer to take their money and there is a country. And tomorrow you will say ‘Father Mbaka says’. Why do you force me to say something?

“I am giving both the President and the CBN Governor a mandate from heaven if they don’t want to act immediately and stop this self-imposed wicked suffering on the people, they will suffer.

“People are now selling money, not dollars. It easy to get dollar now than to get Naira. Parents cannot have money to buy foodstuff for their children.


“I don’t know how many will be alive by the time the so-called new currency will come out. The new currency is not even good. The design is very poor. The colour separation is rubbish and everybody is quite thinking about election. Will people not be alive to do the election?

“If the leaders know that this policy won’t work why can’t they change it immediately? Is the government of the people. It is not your government,” he said.
