Catholic Church Bans Ejike Mbaka From Endorsing Politicians by kitaatita: 9:58pm On Dec 09, 2018
The Catholic Church has banned Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of Adoration Ministries Enugu Nigeria (AMEN) from endorsing politicians seeking for elective offices.
Bishop Callistus Onaga of Enugu Catholic Diocese announced the ban at the weekend while speaking at Priestly Ordination in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church Emene Enugu.

According to Bishop Onaga, the church has also asked Mbaka to send a written apology to former Anambra State Governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi, over their recent altercation.

“The Church does not want prophesy. We are in a democracy and not theocracy. We asked Mbaka to send a written apology to Obi. What he did was not apology but apologetics. He wrote an apology before us and I hope it will be in the social press now,” Onaga said.

The Bishop insisted that Mbaka must adhere to the instructions of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) and do not get involved in the endorsement of candidates.

Onaga maintained that Mbaka should not stay in one place and decide who will win or lose.

“Stop prophesying on who is going to be what. He (Mbaka) told us he was sorry. He said he didn’t know what happened and promised it won’t happen again.
“Let us pray for Mbaka. There’s no doubt that Mbaka is a gifted priest. Stop misleading him. You (the followers) pushed him into doing what he did. Daddy, Daddy, Daddy and he misspoke. Follow him, but pray for him.

You (people who reacted to his outbursts) called him names. When I heard it I also called him names. The Church is a human church with all human limitations.
“I hope with this public statement everything will now rest so that we will continue with our Mass the way we’ve been doing it” Onaga said.

Father Mbaka became very popular with political prophesies in 2015 when he successfully predicted the victory of Muhammadu Buhari of APC over the then incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan of PDP.

APC has nothing to do with it. Mbaka sparred with former Governor Nnamani who is of PDP. The high point of their squabble was innocent people that died during a stampede in his adoration crusade. Mbaka continues to allege that Governor Nnamani used poisonous gas against the people. Mbaka is about money. He borrowed from Union Bank and didn't pay. When the bank came for its money, Mbaka directed his followers to withdraw their money from the bank, claiming that the bank was distressed. He is pathetic. I can't understand how he feels while consecrating the Holy Eucharist

The Catholic Church has decorum, self regulation and control. This is something pentecostals need to learn.

Accuse him of molesting you as a child ...end of story. I believe the Catholic Church has had one too many of that; a friend told me to tell you to tell your friend... wink.

Re: Catholic Church Bans Ejike Mbaka From Endorsing Politicians by Nobody: 9:27am On Dec 10, 2018
GOOD
This is why I find it difficult patronizing CHURCHES operated by one man.
CHURCHES into PRIVATE PRACTICE can be challenging and deadly.
A SINGLE MAN takes all the decisions, telling you that GOD said or endorsed.
They can FEED GULLIBLE people lies and get away with such.

THUMBS up CATHOLIC CHURCH.
If the Stupid MBAKA wants to operate a PRIVATE BUSINESS he should pull out officially and join those PENTECOSTAL business outlets in ABUJA and Port Harcourt and hustle for Money
He can as well endorse IBB.
Meanwhile,
CATHOLIC
ANGLICAN
ADVENTIST
JEHOVAHS WITNESS
PRESBYTERIANS
METHODIST
BAPTIST

These Churches stated above do not swallow SHITTTTT
