Father Mbaka speaks out on oil deal with Goodluck Jonathan

24 July 2016, 20:38

Abuja - Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has spoken out regarding his alleged dealing with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Naij reports.

The charismatic pastor has dismissed claims that he fell out with Jonathan over the Statesman's refusal to grant his request for an oil well.

In addition, Mbaka stated that he has no regrets regarding a 2015 prophesy predicting the defeat of Jonathan in the immediate previous presidential election.

The Catholic leader has claimed that allegations of an oil deal between him and Jonathan are "lies from the pit of hell", while stating that the claims sought nothing but to detract from his prophesy, which came to pass shortly after.

"When these prophesies come, it must not be what people think or want; people are entitled to their views; those reactions mean nothing; the important thing is that there is nothing he had prophesized which never came to pass; the ministry does not care how people feel about his prophesies. Some call him controversial priest; some call him fiery priest and all that, they are entitled to their opinion. The fact remains that he is a true prophet," the priest said through his media aide, Barr Maximus Ike Ugwuoke.
