Prominent Catholic priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, has prophesied that unless the Buhari administration hastened move to genuinely start taking care of the youths, that they (youths) “will rise and end the current political system”.
Mbaka stated this while speaking at the 2020 edition of his popular annual December 31 Crossover Night ministration, advising the federal government to take swift moves to create jobs to prevent Nigerian youths from embarking on restiveness that may consume the regime.
The fiery priest also took a swipe at the country’s lawmakers, especially members of the National Assembly (NASS).
Describing the lawmakers as “kidnappers”, he maintained that unless the
Buhari administration hastened move to genuinely start taking care of the
youths, that they (youths) “will rise and end the current political system”.
While noting that Nigerians were going through horrible conditions, Mbaka also
cautioned state governors, ministers and all political office holders, stressing
that they have alone the choice of repenting and start “doing the needful”
otherwise, what awaited them would be unbearable.
“The Holy Spirit of God asked me to warn the government of the day to be very
careful; to change policies and take care of the youths without politicising their
“That the government should rise and urgently create jobs and innovate
opportunities that would benefit the youths of the nation because they have
suffered so much.
“Don’t politicise the condition of the youths, otherwise, they will arise and end
the political system.
“Should the government fail to do so as soon as possible that time is coming
when the youths will rise against the government, and that any attempt to stop
them will end the government?”
Mbaka, who did not specify when the lurking youth agitation would take place,
however, dropped another puzzling pronouncement.
He said: “I can see a year ahead; it is not specific whether it is in 2021 that
this will happen, but it is within a time in the time of life, that the anger of God
will befall many people in the political circle because they have looted so much
and disgraced this nation enough.
“Those who should be serving the country have looted the country dry for their
personal aggrandisement, such that our children and grandchildren no longer
have a future”.
He pointed out that politicians had for long busied themselves in “packing and
packing the nation’s commonwealth, refusing to create wealth, but that they
now turned around to tag the youths kidnappers, criminals, hoodlums and so
He also declared that God was angry with past and present leaders for turning
Nigerian youths into beggars in other countries due to overwhelming hardship in
the nation, and urged them to find a way to right their wrongs.
“They should obey the voice of God, sit together and think out how to reshape
“The situation in the country portends wickedness, wicked ruling in high places,
in the name of legislators; they are the real kidnappers, and the anger of God
is upon them.
“I know they would want to attack this message, as usual, but I warn, let
nobody, whether you are a politician or a man of God, attacks this message so
you do not become a victim!
“Whoever that would conspire against this message or partake in any gang-up
against me or this ministry, your evil plans will turn back and befall you.
“Be warned, this is no longer the Fr Mbaka of 2020 but that of 2021,” he said,
adding that, “it will be fire for fire this year; if you attack us, you will be
