Tambuwal At Catholic Bishops Conference In Sokoto / Catholic Bishops Ask Buhari To Resign, Ask Nigerians To Defend Themselves / Buhari Supporters Attack Charly Boy At Wuse Market, Destroy Cars (Video/Photos) (2) (3) (4)
|Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by 5Ebiscoo: 3:54pm On Dec 07|
The last is yet to be heard on the controversies generated by the comments made by the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka over the 2019 elections.
DAILY POST reports that the fiery Enugu priest had chided the Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Peter Obi for not donating to the ministry, a development that has drawn criticism from across the country.
One of the reactions came from the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), which distanced itself from the statements.
However, members of the Adoration worshipers in the Diaspora have faulted the CBCN’s stand on the issue.
In a joint statement issued by the group on Friday, which was co-signed by two of their leaders, Sir Nelson Onyema and Stella Okpanku, they said the CBCN was giving unnecessary attention to the issue.
Onyema claimed that “the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Mathew Kukah few months ago took Atiku Abubakar to Olusegun Obasanjo for a political reconciliation and endorsement to pave the way for his emergence as the PDP presidential flag bearer.
“Bishop Kukah is the Chief campaigner of Atiku; the CBCN has been silent on this and issued no statement on it. The same Bishop Kukah who is co-chairing the National Peace Committee with former Head of State, Abudulsalam Abubakar and others were seen few days ago playing some political roles geared towards reaching a Memorandum of Understanding for all political parties in Nigeria, the CBCN did not issue any statement on this.
“Sometime ago, the Bishop of Onitsha ArchDiocese celebrated a public mass of commendation and endorsement for Goodluck Jonathan, what sanction did the church give to him? If the CBCN should be fair on this, they should start to address the issue from amongst them. I am sensing that jealousy and envy may have infiltrated the Catholic Church in Nigeria and have expected the CBCN to guard its utterances jealously.
“It will be a shame for Catholic Church in Nigeria if the Bishops should continue to allow political sentiments and double standards to characterize their actions. I am sure that if this issue were to be between an ordinary citizen and his priest, the CBCN would have been silent on it. For the CBCN to make a statement on this issue just because it involves Obi as PDP Vice Presidential aspirant conveys their tacit support for Atiku and Obi and I can’t help asking when has the Catholic Church become Atiku/Obi campaign organization?”
On her part, Okpanku said “it was Fr. Mbaka that has compelled the whole Nigeria to know the power of the Eucharist and transformed the pattern of worship in the church to the Adoration of the Eucharist after his Ordination in 1995.
“Through this, he exposed the secret miraculous power of the Eucharist to both the Catholics and non Catholics such that today in almost all the parishes in Nigeria, Adoration of the Eucharist has become a popular worship pattern with the attendant miracles. The CBCN has never issued a statement in commendation of Fr Mbaka over this.”
They added that “Nigerians should rather be grateful to God who imbued Fr Mbaka with the courageous gift to speak truth to power.”
According to them, “Fr Mbaka remains a bridge between the poor citizens of this country and the Leaders that are meant to use the nation’s wealth to look after them.
“Fr Mbaka has no need for begging Buhari, Peter Obi or any one that came for the bazaar for money for any personal need. Fr Mbaka is a selfless industrialist that has demonstrated his vow of poverty by using all his wealth for the poor. Donations made to his ministry is donation to the uncountable poor masses who depend on his charity for their survival, education and welfare and regretted that it is unfortunate some of the wailers today are the same poor masses for whose sake he is being persecuted.”

ADORATION MINISTRY OF TRADE AND COMMERCE. THEY ARE PROTECTING THEIR BUSINESS.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 4:47pm On Dec 07|
The issue is that stingy and greedy Peter Obi went to campaign in Mbakas church empty handed thinking Mbaka will not call him out. Now he’s funding his boys mekaboy and co to attack Mbaka on social media
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 4:49pm On Dec 07|
mekaboy:Greedy and stingy Peter adaobi left his house and went to campaign in mbakas ministry empty handed. That is the issue here

an ex Governor want to Bazaar empty handed
He's lucky if na my own priest
The founder of TWELVE APOSTLES COLLEGE he will use his mouth and design him next time he'll Respect him Self
Adoration Ministry is not Mbaka property it's owned by Catholic Diocese of Enugu and Mbaka is building it for God
I have not seen any other priest building such projects for God
He has been doing it since 1995 that he was ordained
Mbaka we Love you
any good politician Mbaka will courage him or her
and if you're a bad one Mbaka will condem you

Getting stale already. There are more pressing issues to talk about. Donot give someone an attention that is undeserved.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by TheFreeOne: 5:41pm On Dec 07|
So Mbaka operates a Ghana must go ministry where prayers are for the highest bidder?
Until sheppies understands that true service to God/humanity is not always about material things many will continue to be led astray thinking they are serving God Almighty.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 5:47pm On Dec 07|
mekaboy:Mbaka did not endorse Buhari, he only said that Atikus ambition will end in shame, we are waiting for the confirmation or not in 2019

TheFreeOne:Peter Obi knew this and still went there to campaign empty handed?
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by mekaboy(m): 5:51pm On Dec 07|
He brought cash. But as a good administrator of resources unlike obiano. He must see the site of the project and plan to decide where to come in.
Obiano would have donated and go back to borrow money.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by mekaboy(m): 5:52pm On Dec 07|
Go and watch the video. He said he insulted obi because of his support for Buhari. The same buhari he criticized before the donation.

|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 6:02pm On Dec 07|
mekaboy:You keep lying like your master Obi. Mbaka in video asked Peter Obi that he can take him to the construction site if he wanted, Obi was not interested in seeing anything, he just wanted to deceive Mbaka like he deceived Anambra people for 8 years. What did he want to discuss later with Mbaka. I think he wanted to secretly ask Mbaka to endorse their failed ticket before he can contribute but Mbaka was wiser and asked him to donate in public
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by mekaboy(m): 6:04pm On Dec 07|
He deceived Anambra and attracted investment and savings. Obiano is being truthful and we can't find anything on ground.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by TheFreeOne: 6:11pm On Dec 07|
I wouldn't know if he went there empty handed but my concern is it's saddening that religious leaders are becoming more interested in money than salvation.
Shebi the other day one boasted of being dangerously rich...SMH
E go be like film trick when reality hits many in the face when they cross over into the hereafter. That's when many will realised they've been conned by their so called men of God.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by MadamExcellency: 6:15pm On Dec 07|
Why are people disturbed. Father Mbaka prophesied that Gov. Chimaraoke will not win second term but he won, finished his term and won another election to the Senate.
He is just doing guessing work. Moreover, is he that obsessed with money that he must force someone to give? He doesn't even have better access to God than Peter Obi because he is not the mediator between God and Man.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 6:43pm On Dec 07|
mekaboy:Mention just 1 investment Peter Obi attracted to Anambra after 8 years apart from sabmiller to make our people drunkards. Obiano is doing much better and ndi Anambra are happy remember 21/21 LGA victory in 2017. First of its kind in Anambra
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by dokie: 8:39pm On Dec 07|
Did you see him campaigning?
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by Chikpat(m): 3:13am On Dec 08|
I love this; very reasonable remarks are contained here in.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by 99100(m): 6:07am On Dec 08|
'Father' Mbaka is too political for my liken.
Even the Pope does not dangle into politics like he does.
In Mbaka, I see a man who is so interested in fame.
He must choose between being a politician and/or continuing with his church duties.
The church must call him to order.

|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by PureMe01: 12:13pm On Dec 10|

|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by mekaboy(m): 12:16pm On Dec 10|
He does not need it. His record already does. ANAMBRA people now know obiano is a scammer.
And until you give update on the last UGU export $2 billion airport and $10 billion investment attracted, you have no right to talk about obi.
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 12:24pm On Dec 10|
PureMe01:You are just living in denial. APGA crowd was massive. The atiku project is already failed even atiku knows but you can keep living in denial lol
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by PureMe01: 12:27pm On Dec 10|
globemoney:u will realize the meaning of massive when Obi lands in Anambra, but then u will need a doctor by ur side when he comes
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 12:28pm On Dec 10|
mekaboy:Anambra people know? That’s why they voted Obiano massively in all 21 LGAs in the state? Even chose Obiano over Obi in Obis LGA and village? Can’t you see why I say your now running mad.
How long until you accept that the Atiku/Obi project has failed? Or you want to keep fooling yourself with idiotic failed threads?
If I was Peter Obi I would have sacked you from my team by now but both of you are incompetent anyway
|Re: Peter Obi: Fr. Mbaka’s Supporters Attack Catholic Bishops by globemoney: 12:29pm On Dec 10|
PureMe01:We are waiting. I can’t wait lol
