The government of Buhari has marginalized igbo’s – Mbaka

The Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Ejike
Mbaka has alleged high level of marginalisation of Igbo people by
the Federal Govt of Nigeria.
Mbaka said he is pained that in spite of his support for President of
Nigeria, Muhammad Buhari, Igbo are so marginalised to the extent
that he slept in Abuja for weeks to get a loan from the Bank of
Agriculture for his farming vision in order to create more jobs to
the teaming unemployed graduates.
Mbaka made the statement yesterday on adoration ground.
Below is his words,
“Whenever I went to obtain loan from the Bank of Agriculture, they
would tell me to get a commercial bank that will do this and do
that.
The commercial banks will asked me to bring the feathers of one
snake and legs of snake. This went on for many years and we are
ready to impact significance into our agriculture; the only barrier is
funding and encouragements.
“It’s a sad development; if a northern has this kind of vision they
would come around him, but here, we are alone. We started it in
Adani and there was no help; there was flood and we lost
N830Million and I went down to Nkereife.
We had the largest poultry farm in the east of the Niger. In one day
we lost 939,000 births. With the type of courage God gave to me,
nobody knew and nobody will know apart from the fact that I’m
disclosing it now. No encouragement and they are longing for
authentic farmers, and we are farmers.
“So, please, on behalf of the adoration members, we want them to
monitor the funding and implementation. We don’t kill criminals
here, we kill crime. If you go to Aqua Rapha investment Ltd, we
have thousands of them working, yet, we don’t have government
support apart from Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who remembered
us and created a road to this place. People thought President
Buhari is helping me, but he is not helping us with one kobo. So,
those who could have been helping thought he was helping and
now he has become a hindrance.
“If you go to the North, you would see how billions are spent there.
If you go to my farm, there is a River that separates the land which
makes it difficult for me to move equipment, and now, I’m doing
the bridge by myself without help from anywhere, yet, I’m a priest.
“So, I’m representing the poor, that is why I’m attacking many
governments because when they cannot help the poor who I
represent, and when the pressure is too much on me, I attack
them.
“Why can’t the federal government which claims to support
agriculture not help the agriculturist? So, it is a poor and fake
claim. Why can’t we have here a pilot farm that would be the eyes
of this country?
“We have in our aquaculture fishes one of the species which
contains five billion fishes, but lack of good road to the farm led to
the closure of that farm and the federal government is aware of
this. So, for me, it is not just negligence, but wickedness and
unhealthy marginalisation, because I’m not from the North. If a
northerner had this kind of vision, from the Central Bank, order will
be given. There are subsidies here and there to be granted, not
even loan.
“They will have to seek grants, give the farm grants for whatever it
takes. That is why the Igbo are crying. Some of us have been
friends with the president, but when you seat down and think
deeper, you see his nepotism,” he lamented.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
