The Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN) has raised the alarm over alleged plans to assassinate its founder and spiritual leader, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka before the March 28 general election.
Media officer of the Adoration Ministry, Ike Maximus Ugwuoke, who disclosed this, cried out that Father Mbaka had been marked for death before the presidential election.
They warned in the press statement entitled, “Jonathan wants me dead before the 2015 election”, that if by chance anything happened to Fr. Mbaka, Jonathan’s government should be held responsible.
“It is with a deep sense of concern that we are constrained to make this statement on the continued threat to the life of Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka over his 2015 New Year message titled ‘From Goodluck to Badluck'."
"The issue of threat to Fr Mbaka’s life became a public knowledge that it formed the headline of the Sun news publication of 5th January 2015, 'My Life in Danger'."
"My life has followed a path, I've lived, loved, hurt cried and achieved. Truth is a Ruth KADIRI's story whether positive or negative couldn't have been told without certain people in my life...
"My boyfriend supported my career, overlooked all the gossips and show me the definition of Love." - Ruth Kadiri
“We had expected that a President that has spent about 6 years in office with the revenues more than what all governments before him had received will run on a record of performance rather than peddling lies and hate media campaigns that are accentuating ethnic and religious tensions in the country,”
The APC Campaign observed that a panoramic view of how much of Nigeria’s resources Jonathan and the PDP have spent on print, broadcast and social media campaigns just to damage the unassailable credential of Gen Buhari’s integrity would confound any casual observer of the polity in recent times.
Among them, it noted: “An average cost of a wrap around in Tier 1 and Tier 2 newspapers in Nigeria is between N15 million to N20 million and the Jonathan campaign buys average of 5 wrap around and front pages in a day in the last 3 months coupled with the hundreds of billions that have been spent on negative TV exposures on AIT, NTA and other television and radio stations across the country.”
It further noted that President Jonathan has been criss-crossing Nigeria, giving an average of N50 million each to traditional rulers, most especially in the South West and the Northern parts of Nigeria.
“This week, the President’s campaign money is being shipped to the North. Letters in English and Hausa backed by millions in cash are being dispatched to willing rulers in the region. Religious leaders, trade unions, youths organisations, professional bodies, entertainers are not ruled out of the money sharing jamboree of President Jonathan.”
It recalled in that regard that one pastor recently confirmed that N7 billion was given to Pastors to spread unfounded allegations of Islamaphobia and scare mongering against Gen Buhari and other APC leaders.
“A president and his depraved political party that finds it convenient to lavish billions of Naira on political propaganda spins, but finds it difficult to remove the corruption surrounding the access to kerosene for millions of families in this country should not deserve the votes of Nigerians,” the Campaign said.
It noted that the entire oil industry in Nigeria stinks of corruption, and rather than investing its energies into how petroleum products will be accessible to Nigerians, the Jonathan government busies itself blindly spending money to confuse Nigerians about the electoral choices they make.
It recalled that in various Nigerian states over the past year, in all the geopolitical zones, teachers have gone on strike on account of unpaid salaries, leaving millions of children idle and without access to formal education for months at a stretch. Similarly, many Nigerian teachers went for the Christmas holidays without having received their November and December salaries, it said, and many earn less than the agreed minimum wage.
“Mindless looting of our national treasury to fund hate campaign and rent crowd at home and abroad like the case of rudderless Nigerians at Chatham House in London, arming ethnic militias for election purposes will not save this incompetent and clueless government being presided over by President Jonathan and his party from defeat on Saturday at the polls,” the APC Campaign Organization promised.
It reiterated that the issues in Saturday’s election are massive corruption in the conduct of government business, insecurity, unemployment and systemic decay in all sectors of our economy.
“They are the issues this government has been found wanting by Nigerians and for which they are ready to cast their votes for APC and our Presidential Candidate, Gen Buhari.”
Text of the press statement:
Gentlemen of the Press you are welcome to this very important press conference.
We will like to bring to your attention and that of Nigerians how the President Goodluck Jonathan led Peoples Democratic Party government is wasting one trillion Naira that belong to Nigerian people in his self-serving and desperate bid for a re-election at all cost in the midst of grinding poverty his party and government has subjected Nigerians to in the last 16 years.
It is unconscionable and height of betrayal of public trust that a government and a President who should preside over the husbandry and judicious use of our national patrimony is superintending over its massive squander in a futile attempt to stop the idea of change. Let us sound a note of warning at this point that no amount of sponsored negative media propaganda can stop this idea whose time has come.
The APC Presidential Campaign and the acceptability of our candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice Presidential Candidate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has become a peoples’ movement and Nigerian masses who are the drivers of change are the major stakeholders.
A panoramic view of how much Nigeria’s resources Jonathan and PDP have laboriously and wantonly spent on print, broadcast and social media campaigns just to damage the unassailable credential of Gen Buhari’s integrity will confound any casual observer of the polity in recent times.
An average cost of a wrap around in Tier 1 and Tier 2 newspapers in Nigeria is between N15 million to N20 million and the Jonathan campaign buys average of 5 wrap around and front pages in a day in the last 3 months coupled with the hundreds of billions that have been spent on negative TV exposures on AIT, NTA and other television and radio stations across the country.
We had expected that a President that has spent about 6 years in office with the revenues more than what all governments before him had received will run on a record of performance rather than peddling lies and hate media campaigns that are accentuating ethnic and religious tensions in the country.
President Jonathan has been criss-crossing Nigeria giving an average of N50 million each to traditional rulers, most especially in the South West and the Northern parts of Nigeria. This week, the President’s campaign money is being shipped to the North. Letters in English and Hausa backed by millions in cash are being dispatched to willing rulers in the region. Religious leaders, trade unions, youths organisations, professional bodies, entertainers are not ruled out of the money sharing jamboree of President Jonathan.
Gentlemen of the Press you will recall that a Pastor recently confirmed that N7 billion was given to Pastors to spread unfounded allegations of Islamaphobia and scare mongering against Gen Buhari and other APC leaders.
We are very much concerned as a campaign organisation that this hundreds of billions that have been sunk into bottomless pit of illogical and unreasonable negative campaign of calumny can conveniently provide basic amenities and social services that will improve the standard of living of our people through improvement in our healthcare delivery system, education, road, access to credit by rural women, improve our national electricity grid to save businesses from collapsing under high cost of generating their own power.
A fraction of the trillion naira hate campaign expenditure will fund the APC programme of feeding primary school pupils in Nigeria on one nutritional meal a day, comfortably pay N5000 monthly to 25 million very poor Nigerians for a year and pay unemployment benefit for one year for graduates who can't find gainful employment one year after NYSC which are core to the social welfare programmes of the APC Federal government Gen Buhari will lead.
Today, we are all witnesses to the excruciating pains our people go through to purchase kerosene - a daily household need of millions of families in Nigeria.
The government officially puts the price of kerosene at N50 per litre, but every household that purchases the product daily knows that they spend more than N150 for a litre of kerosene. Any businessman allocated kerosene by the NNPC returns a handsome margin that goes into the Jonathan campaign.
A president and his depraved political party that finds it convenient to lavish billions of Naira on political propaganda spins, but finds it difficult to remove the corruption surrounding the access to kerosene for millions of families in this country should not deserve the votes of Nigerians.
The entire oil industry in Nigeria stinks of corruption, and rather than government investing its energies into how petroleum products will be accessible to Nigerians, the Jonathan government busies itself blindly spending money to confuse Nigerians about the electoral choices they make.
In various states around the country over the past year, in all the geopolitical zones, teachers have gone on strike, leaving millions of children idle and without access to formal education for months at a stretch, owing to unpaid salaries. Many Nigerian teachers went for the Christmas holidays without having received their November and December salaries. Many earn less than the agreed minimum wage.
Mindless looting of our national treasury to fund hate campaign and rent crowd at home and abroad like the case of rudderless Nigerians at Chatham House in London, arming ethnic militias for election purposes will not save this incompetent and clueless government being presided over by President Jonathan and his party from defeat on Saturday at the polls.
The frustrations of Nigerians on the Jonathan government are very manifest – you can almost touch it on the back of your wrist. Therefore, this election is not about how much the incumbent president and the ruling party can spend to dubiously keep itself in power. And let the PDP make no mistakes about it: this election is clearly a referendum on the performance of the Goodluck Jonathan administration and millions of Nigerians going to cast their ballot in this Saturday’s election will be going there to write an epitaph of the PDP and Jonathan government.
We want to reiterate that the issues in this election are massive corruption in the conduct of government business, insecurity, unemployment and systemic decay in all sectors of our economy. They are the issues this government has been found wanting by Nigerians and for which they are ready to cast their votes for APC and our Presidential Candidate, Gen Buhari.
Thank you for your kind attention and for attending this press conference at a very short notice.

Sanusi, who disclosed this while being interviewed by Christine Amanpour on CNN, maintained that the presidential candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari, was right on the level of corruption that is going on in the country at the moment.
While maintaining that about $20 billion was missing from the account of the NNPC, which was not remitted to the Federation Account, Sanusi said: “This has not been addressed adequately and from the account of the Corporation, about $20 billion was not remitted to the federation account. We need to address this.”
“I have achieved everything that I could achieve. So, what is there to be afraid of?” Sanusi asked.
Hajia Aishat Buhari, wife of the Presidential candidate of the APC, General Muhammadu Buhari has replied the wife President Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, who has been campaigning that Buhari will jail her husband and other corrupt politicians if elected President in the March 28 election, saying Patience needs not fear as Nigerians only want a Change in the way Nigeria is being run presently.
Speaking at a mega rally where she interacted with Women in Edo State, Hajia Buhari said the PDP’s attempt to paint her husband black with the tar of religion is a desperate attempt to hoodwink the people, saying only those who want to steal campaign with religion which is at variance with politics.
She said: “Each zone of the country has its peculiar problems.
“For those that are campaigning, saying that he is coming to jail Nigerians, I don’t know what their fear is. But they shouldn’t be afraid, because we are all yearning for Change.
The insecurity in the country, the very poor healthcare system, lack of education and other basic necessities that people are lacking I believe Nigerians need somebody like Muhammadu Buhari now.
“Already, they have painted him black, using religion. I’m happy today that Nigerians realize that they use religion as a cover to loot Nigeria.
"Any politician who talks to you about religion is a liar; he only wants to loot the treasury and the little resources you ought to enjoy. So say no to politics merging with religion to deceive the people."
“We are here today to also let you know that the collection of your PVCs is important and don’t ever sell it. It’s like selling your future. If you sell it for N5,000, you won’t see N5,000 again until after four years which will be bad.
"Get your PVC, vote for APC, vote for freedom, vote for a new Nigeria with good security, good education, good healthcare, good roads and all the basic necessities.”
The pastors under the aegis of Christians for Governance, Pastors For Change, held a conference in Ikeja, Lagos, where they openly endorsed the candidacy of Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo, who is a respected pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
The clerics are drawn from various churches, such as the Redeemed Church, Catholic, Orthodox, etc.
They declared that they were not part of Jonathan’s largesse and that nobody gave them money to support Buhari, but acting by divine intervention from God who told them that Buhari would be the next president of Nigeria.
The movement is being supported by Rev. Moses Iloh, Archbishop Magnus Atilade, Ayo Opadokun and many other bigwigs in Christendom.
Addressing the conference, Bishop Kayode Williams, National Coordinator, Christians for Good Governance, said they have about 6,000 ministers who were part of the group calling for change in leadership as the present government had failed the nation.
“We want to observe seven days of special prayer on the seven mountains in the Southwest political zones comprising six states to pray for the victory of Buhari and Osinbajo in the 28 March presidential election.
“We are using this opportunity to call on all pastors who believe that the time has surely come for change in Nigeria to exhort, mobilise, instruct and direct all our members from our churches, numbering 186,000 churches in the Southwest zone to adhere to this divine instruction from God,” he said.
“We shall intensify our intercessory prayers to God so that there will be peace in the nation and that the election will be free, transparent and peaceful. We are asking our archbishops, evangelists, elders, deacons and deaconesses to join hands and make sure that the prayer programme is very successful.”

Making a reference to the All Progressives Congress, she asked, “What did they forget in Aso rock? If you vote PDP and Jonathan, it would be better for you. If you vote APC, you will go to prison. How can you jail somebody for 300 years? I’m not ready to carry food to my husband inside prison oh!”
Funny enough, she openly admitted that the Office of First Lady, which she occupies, is illegal.
But she added that there was nothing wrong in a woman supporting her husband in office.
The President’s wife spoke in Ado Ekiti on Monday during a rally of the women’s wing of the PDP.
She said, “They said there is no Office of the First Lady. Already, we know that there is no Office of the First Lady but there is wife of the President.
“As (the) wife of the President, if you are good, people will love you. You will have an NGO through which you will touch people’s lives. That is why I brought Women for Change Initiative.”
While she was talking, women fought to have their share of the leftover of rice distributed by Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, during the last Christmas festival, packaged in small bags.
The women were still struggling over the rice packaged in small bags when attention was diverted to another struggle for buckets presented by Senator Gbemi Saraki in commemoration of the October 16 inauguration of Fayose.
In the struggle, which almost resulted in a stampede, many of the women got injured. Shoes, headgears, wigs and bags littered the floor while a woman was heard complaining to a friend that she lost her bangle.
Security men had a hectic time controlling the surging women who engaged in a brawl.

The bickering over the funds has also fragmented the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) with members’ loyalty divided between both leaders, THEWILL can report.
The huge funds were said to have been received before the December primaries of the party from mostly top governorship and national assembly aspirants as well as their promoters.
It was authoritatively gathered that some governorship aspirants paid out as much as $10million to Mu’azu who in turn allowed them handpick delegates as well as electoral officers for their primaries.
However, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has opened investigations into one of the dealings where Ndudi Elumelu, a governorship aspirant from Delta State, was allegedly made to pay about N750million but eventually failed to clinch the party’s ticket.
THEWILL sources said the corruption in the party has spread to the presidential campaign organisation where members have been stealing funds meant for the campaign organization, a case that has forced President Jonathan to personally supervise his uphill bid for re-election on March 28.
