Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, a fiery Enugu Catholic Priest, has apologized and prayed for Labour Party Presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi, saying he will never be Nigeria’s President, Charmingpro reports.
Mbaka apologized after declaring that Peter Obi will never be President of Nigeria.
During his most recent sermon at the Adoration Ground, he stated that unless God ceases to exist, Obi will never smell the President’s seat, adding that it was preferable to have an old man as President than a’stingy young man.’
Nigerians reacted angrily to the Catholic priest’s comment, accusing him of hating Peter Obi because he refused to donate to his church.
The cleric, however, stated in a statement that he personally signed that he did not intend to defame His Excellency, Peter Obi’s image, but rather to pray for him.
As a result, he apologized to Peter Obi and his supporters and prayed for God’s blessing on them.
“For the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Nigeria, I am grateful to God for His unquantifiable and favorable blessings, miracles, love, and life.”
I assure God’s people and Nigerians that I am praying for good governance and leadership in this country, and that God will provide us with leaders who are like Him.
“As things stand, Nigeria faces indescribable insecurity challenges, an incalculable unemployment crisis, massive corruption, heinous crimes, and unfathomable suffering brought on by bad leadership.” In whatever we are going through in this trying time, I bear with my fellow countrymen and women. I implore the adorers and the entire people of God to join hands in prayer, asking God to deliver us from the devil’s and his agents’ schemes.
“I am a servant of God, and my intent is not to defame His Excellency, Peter Obi, but to pray for him.” In his life, may God’s will be done. I pray to God, whom I serve, to provide good and excellent leaders for our beloved people, who will care for them and lead them to the promised land. I will support whoever God chooses to be our leader. In this vein, I extend my best wishes to His Excellency Peter Obi and his supporters, as well as the other candidates and their supporters, all of whom have the same goal of providing Nigeria with good leaders. If my words have offended Mr Peter Obi’s supporters in any way, or if I have been misunderstood by them in any way, I ask for their forgiveness and understanding.
“I pray for the well-being of my people as a servant of the Most High God.” Good governance, justice, equity, love, and godliness are all values that I strongly believe in. I pray for peace, love, and anything else that will bring blessings and favor to our people and our suffering teaming youths at this time when our people are passing through the valleys of shadows of death (Ps23.4). In all of your trials, I will always be by your side. God will take care of you and miraculously bless you for me.
“I have no desire to fight or defame Mr. Peter Obi. He is and will continue to be my friend and brother. I adore him and wish him success. May God bless him and all of his admirers. In his political endeavors, God’s will be done. (Mk.14:36)
“I am praying for, sacrificing for, fighting for, speaking up for, and working for the integral well-being of Peter Obi’s followers.” What the youths are going through and their circumstances keep me awake at night. It is for this reason that I long for good governance and capable leaders to look after them. In this country, we are going through indescribable, unbearable, and undeserved hardship. I’m hoping for divine help.
“I am not a member of any political party, but I believe in good governance and good people.” My preferred candidate is any good person that God can provide. I am a servant of God, and I ask for forgiveness in any way I have been misunderstood for the sake of peace. I also pray for Peter Obi’s blessing and the manifestation of God’s will in his life. Who can say no when God says yes? Who can say Yes when God says No? I pray for Peter Obi and bless him. I bless and pray for my dear fellow Adores. I bless God’s people everywhere, and I pray that all goes well for you.
“There will be no all-night Adoration program today, 17th June 2022, for the sake of those who were gruesomely killed on Pentecost Sunday at St. Francis Xavier parish Owo, Ondo State, and who are being buried today.” We join the Catholic Church in mourning their passing. May their souls, as well as the souls of the faithful departed, rest in perfect peace, thanks to God’s mercy. Amen
