Catholic Bishops Reject Father Mbaka’s Apology To Peter Obi by Nobody: 8:29am On Dec 10, 2018
The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria have rejected Father Mbaka’s apology to Peter Obi, which the controversial priest issued after an embarrassing episode with the PDP Vice Presidential candidate. 

Catholic Bishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga who relayed the stand of the Catholic Bishops, stated that they rejected Father Mbaka’s apology to Peter Obi because it was no apology but apologetics that did not comply with what they directed him to do.

Speaking during the weekend at a diaconate ordination mass celebrated at the Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu, Onaga, under whose jurisdiction and supervision Fr. Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry Enugu operates said; 

“Before we met Mbaka, he had already apologised to Obi but when we listened to the apology, we realized it was no apology but apologetics, so we mandated him to do a written apology to Obi which he agreed to do and actually did it in our presence.

“He was remorseful and regretted his action. We believe he would do the needful by sending across the written apology.”

The Catholic Bishop who noted that Fr. Mbaka is gifted but should not allow himself be led into disobeying the directives and authority of the church, bemoaned the deep involvement of clerics in partisan politics and further stated that priests of the Catholic Church must not make political prophecies or endorse any politician or political party.

The bishop who also warned that priests were becoming meddlesome even in matters that does not concern them, added; 

“I urge you all to pray for Fr. Ejike Mbaka. This man has added value to the church through his work. I have on several occasions told him that he is gifted but we must not allow anybody railroad us into disobeying the directives of the church. I therefore urge you all to pray for him so that the church can maximize his gift to the glory of God.

“I have heard such cases in some community where the contention was that the priest said that a certain person or the other should be the traditional ruler of a community and the community was in crisis. This is beyond your mandate as priest. Priests are not king makers, just preach and pray for them and let the counties run their affairs. In the same way, we should also allow politicians to play their politics and steer clear from the endorsements of candidates. Nigeria operates a democracy and not theocracy. We must therefore be mindful to preserve the integrity of the Catholic church.”

I don't understand the type of gift the political priest have.... Is it the gift of romancing the APC secretly or the gift of collecting free yams and matured goats from members?

That's why I don't fancy Pentecostal churches though I attend one...

Let's assume he owns the church, who will call him to order?

Now I can say I’m a proud Catholic.

Fr Mbaka actions brought shame not only to the Catholic Church but to the faithfuls.

At the end of the day, we are all humans and he should be forgiven after publicly apologising to Obi.

I know Obi has forgiven him even before Mbaka sends his apology letter.

What was Mbaka thinking lambasting a PEP who's a Papal Knight of the Order of St. Sylvester?

This is straight from the Vatican. All fingers are not equal.

Next time consider the consequences and ask yourself if it's worth the trouble before opening your mouth.

Mbaka is from Enugu state thereby making him an inferior Igbo, he should tender a proper apology to Obi who is by the way of a superior Igbo stock.

Don't be too hasty to type, read the content well, you will know that they have forgiven him, but the caption will always be made by news writers to captivate you. I am sure you read only the caption.
