Fr. Mbaka said it is too early to give Buhari’s regime a dispassionate assessment, saying Nigerians should give the President more time.
The Enugu-based cleric said the reason the country was yet to experience the real change being midwifed by Buhari was that some strategic positions were still manned by the same people who milked the country dry in the past.
He said the president was not totally free from the grip of those who ran the country aground in the past.
Mbaka, who spoke to newsmen in Enugu during the graduation of Niger Delta youths, who trained at Innoson Plastic Factory under Federal Government’s Amnesty Programme, said: “The government we are experiencing is not yet a Buharinised government.
“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!”
He urged Nigerians to be prayerful to counter the activities of those he said were plotting to break the country and take over power.
