Rev Fr Mbaka who has been in the forefront of criticism for his support for President Buhari will be celebrating 21 years of priestly ordination on Friday.
The renown Enugu-based clergyman was noted to have prophesied that President Buhari would win the 2015 general elections. Much to the dismay and his critics.
Mbaka had been accused of obtaining gifts from President Buhari, as well as allegedly demanding for oil wells from former president Goodluck Jonathan.
A request which was allegedly declined by Goodluck, which some say was largely responsible for the unfavorable stance Mbaka took against him.
Rev Fr Mbaka had however, debunked such allegations and speculations as baseless and untrue.
