Staunch supporter of the present administration and fiery Enugu Catholic priest, Rev’d. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has said that Nigerians were yet to experience the real change being presented by President Muhammadu Buhari because some key positions were still occupied by the same people who corruptly enriched themselves from the public purse in Nigeria in the past.
He stated this while fielding questions from newsmen in Enugu at the graduation of Niger-Delta youths, who trained at Innoson Plastic Factory under Federal Government’s Amnesty Programme. “The government we are experiencing is not yet a Buharinised government.”
Mbaka explained that Buhari currently works with some people who do not want him to succeed in office and are desperate to pull him down.
He stressed that the president was not totally free from the grip of those who ran the country aground in the past.
The Priest said that he was yet to see the change he wants in Nigeria through the present government, he however acknowledged that it was too early to give Buhari’s regime a dispassionate assessment, adding that Nigerians should give the President more time.
“Many people who are in different strategic positions are still the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) people and Buhari may not even know and even some people who are working around him are working to pull him down.
“Buhari means well, Buhari is a good man, Buhari is God-sent for this country but, I am telling you that there are crocodiles in the fish pond.
“Buhari may not know that he is feeding not the fish in the fishpond but crocodiles that are even feeding on the fishes!”
