Catholic Priest Says Fr Mbaka May Have Heard From God, But Nigeria's Judiciary is Cash and Carry

A catholic priest and former CEO Caritas Nigeria, Reverend Father Evaristus Bassey has commented on the ongoing allegations against his colleague Rev. Fr. Mbaka.

Fr. Mbaka was accused of prophesying about a court case whose judgment was leaked to him by the Federal Government.

Fr. Evaristus Bassey who did not support nor castigate his colleague, he rather compared Fr. Mbaka's present situation to a similar scenario that played out with him while he was supporting  Joe Agi, a gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Cross River State who was in court against the present governor of Cross River State Ben Ayade.

Fr. Bassey wrote " When Joe Agi had his case with Gov Ayade, I happened to be in the same flight and dropped Agi off at home. I used the opportunity to learn more about the case. I really believed Joe Agi would win. 

"But one day as I visited the state my Bishop asked me to represent him at the opening of Asi Ukpo Medical Centre. Ayade, Duke, Abdulsalami etc were all there. And as I asked the crowd to recite a particular psalm, something ministered to me that Ayade would win his case.

"I stopped praying for Agi. God has many ways of revealing things to his servants. Fr Mbaka may truly have heard from God. At the same time political cases are settled long before the actual judgment date. It depends www [email protected]@@on who has greater access to the judge(s) and who has the most cash because our judiciary apart from being shy, is cash and carry".

Fr. Mbaka supported President Buhari into power in  2015 and has been accused of delving into politics instead of focusing on the church.
