Garba, Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, in a series of tweets on Friday, blasted the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka for calling on Buhari to either resign or be impeached.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Shehu said that Mbaka withdrew his support for Buhari because the president refused to give contracts to three contractors he (Mbaka) brought.
The issue is generating reactions on twitter.
See reactions below:
You think Garba Shehu can release a statement without Buhari’s authorization? But it also shows how dumb the president is to approve some of these statements. Going so low to openly attack Mbaka like that. Sad indeed!

Are the contracts demanded by Mbaka the reason the government has been worse than squalid in keeping its obligations?
Have documents bearing the contract requests been neutering the military?
I'd trust a guy who's been in jail four times for theft over Garba Shehu or Lai.

The same Garba Shehu who whitewashed Sheikh Pantami and even begged Nigerians to forgive him for his pro terrorism statement, is now in the market with loudspeakers lambasting Fr Mbaka for requesting gratification of his labour.
We no longer get shame for naija!!

Mbaka can keep mute or curse Garba Shehu.
All in all, Mbaka has brought opprobrium upon himself. https://t.co/wn3GsgVfwT

You look at Nigeria & see more evidence to accept that the country has gone to the gutters.
Had it been that Garba Shehu is employed by a serious government, he wouldn't have the time to react to what an Mbaka, one of the pastorpreneurs that brought him said in a gathering.

Pro and Anti Buhari criticizing Garba Shehu over the attack on Mbaka. He didn't see it coming.

While I have my reservations for Fr. Mbaka, garba shehu has simply defined to the generality of Nigerians what contract is to the presidency… anything but good. After all, there was no mention of bogus quotation or stuff like that.

I agree totally.
Garba Shehu should have ignored him. But you know he can be overzealous at times, in carrying out his duties. 😀

#GarbaSheu: Father Mbaka in my opinion was disembowelled & then defenestrated by that Aso Rock response. He stooped low, then Garba stooped lower.
This is an appropriate response for the times.

No Mbaka slander will be tolerated. You’re backing Pantami, we will back Mbaka jor. 😂

On Father Mbaka, Garba Shehu needs to get that nobody takes part or takes sides in politics to earn their reward in Heaven, and the rewards aren’t necessarily material favors. The most anticipated reward is good governance, and so is respecting the grievance of former supporters.

Stop condemning or defending Mbaka on the accusation by the @NGRPresident that he requested for contracts as compensation for supporting @MBuhari, and was rejected, and that is why he has turned against Buhari. Let us hear from Mbaka himself before we say anything #TableShaker

Anyone who supported Buhari in 2019 and crying today is not sorry.
They are performing for you, anything Garba Shehu said Father Mbaka did, he did that shit.
Me I am not a " bigger person", I know how to hold Political grudges..
