We Have Banned Father Ejike Mbaka From Making Political Utterances Catholic Bishops

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN has given an explanation why popular Catholic Priest, Ejike Mbaka was banned from making political statement.

Mbaka is the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries Enugu Nigeria, AMEN.

According to the Bishops, the fiery priest was ordered to stop using his position to promote what appeared to be partisan politics.

In an address at the opening mass of the ongoing second CBCN plenary in Enugu, the President of the conference and Archbishop of Benin Catholic Archdiocese, Most Rev. Augustine Akubeze, said it was not the practice of the church to identify unelected leaders through prophetic visions, dreams or revelation.

“Anyone who pronounces a particular candidate as God’s anointed political leader is not speaking for the church.

“We will like to state that the church is interested in the political situation in Nigeria. Although the church does not support any party, it praises every government that prioritises the welfare of the citizens.

”At the same time, the church condemns any government policy that is not people-friendly.

“We must make it clear once again that no cleric is expected to use his position or ecclesiastical property to promote what appears to be partisan politics. The church believes that political parties have persons that can lead.

“Therefore, it is imperative that clerics must avoid every form of political endorsement using the ecclesiastical positions given them. At the same time, it is not the practice of the church to identify unelected leaders through some form of prophetic visions or dreams or revelation,” he said.

Recall that the Catholic Church in June banned Fr Mbaka from commenting on partisan politics.

In a letter to the cleric, the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga, announced the conversion of the Adoration Ministry to a chaplaincy which means that the bishop now has the power to appoint a chaplain to oversee its operations.
