Breaking: Enugu Catholic Diocese Disowns Mbaka On Political Endorsement by Nwaforj44: 4:16am On Dec 05
The Catholic Diocese of Enugu has distanced itself from the endorsement of some governors of the South-East and candidates contesting different political positions by the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka.

The church said it has not endorsed any candidate for the 2019 general elections.

Mbaka had, during the bazaar of his ministry in Enugu, last Sunday, embarrassed the vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, for not publicly announcing what he would do for the ministry and also accused him of being stingy, an action that has been roundly condemned by the Catholic Church.


Speaking in an interview last night, Director of Communications, Catholic Diocese of Enugu, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi said the church is apolitical and the church does not take any political position at any time.

“The church is apolitical.

The church doesn’t take any political position at any time and the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), a couple of weeks ago, issued an official statement to that effect; that the pulpit should not be used for any political campaign or the priest coming out to endorse any candidate as against the other. So, there has been official statement to that effect by CBCN.


So, anything on the contrary is against what the church is teaching.

“He doesn’t represent the official position of the church because the church’s position has always been clear and that is what the position of the church has always been, and it hasn’t changed yet. Church officials don’t come out and make political statements or say things that might suggest that one political candidate is endorsed as against the other, no. It is against the church’s mode of operation.


It is against the church’s principles,” he said.

Meanwhile, a renowned Prophet in Enugu, Anthony Nwoko, has lashed at Fr. Mbaka and said he (Mbaka) is not operating with the spirit of holiness.


“Mbaka is not a man of God. He has been deceiving the world. The man that will rule the world is in Enugu and Mbaka could not see it.”

Useless diocese ... why not suspend or excommunicate this cassock crook. No, they won't, because the useless bishop benefits immensely from his political scam activities. Idiots of a feather.

A priest once said that if a politician gives him money for the sake of election, he'd take the money and assume that he picked the money from the floor.

I'm not a Catholic nor really support APC, but isn't the conclusion too rash? I'm just asking.

Catholic church should suspend or expel this fraudster called Mbaka. I don't know why the bishop of Enugu dioceses is keeping quiet over Mbaka since 2015. Mbaka is not the most popular Rev. Father. Ebube Monso is even more popular than him. Mbaka must go

Fr. Mbaka and Peter Obi Encounter...

Ahead of 2019 general elections, politicians should just leave the church alone.

This madness of turning the Churches into campaign grounds during elections must stop. 2019 general election is another opportunity to unlock Nigeria's potentials. I was thinking that by now, that the various political parties would be at campaign grounds showcasing their Atikulated policies and programs and not disturbing people who want to worship God at his dwelling place, the church.

I agree with H.E. Mr. Peter Obi completely, that there is hunger in Nigeria at the moment but the solution cannot be found in any church. Running from one Church to the other cannot solve the problem rather it will aggravate it.

Please, if it will be possible, the Christian Association of Nigeria ( CAN) should just barn politicians from attending church till after the elections.

Nigeria must get better.

Thank you.

Fr. Mbaka is a double edged sword. He loves money & can sell his fellow catholic priest for money.
All his prophecies have centered on money & he channels them to where he can make money. He has forgotten everything about salvation. His embarrassment to H.E Peter Obi last weekend will not be easily forgotten in Nigeria. He , Mbaka needs prayers, as H. E rightly pointed out.This is a man who missed almost all his weekend engagements only to honor his invitation. Everyone can see how Mbaka insulted, embarrassed him. I saw humility in H.E while Fr. Mbaka was talking money, money, money.
