Plot by Catholic Church to transfer Father Mbaka unveiled


Mbaka was criticised extensively by the clergies in SE when he backed Buhari to beat Jonathan in the March 28, 2015 elections.


Director of Adoration Ministry, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka may soon be transferred out of his station, Christ the King Parish in GRA, Enugu State to a yet to be known  destination.

According to Daily Sun, the speculated transfer of Mbaka by Enugu Catholic Diocese is coming against the backdrop of his recent prophecies especially in the politics of Nigeria where he predicted the defeat of former president Goodluck Jonathan at the polls.

Daily Sun gathered that the decision to remove Mbaka was scheduled to affect other priests in an attempt to make it look like a routine church affair.

Another source, however, confirmed that the church is afraid of the possible reaction of his followers and the adoration faithful, who make up more than 80 per cent of the population of Enugu Catholic Diocese.

Mbaka was criticised extensively by the clergies in the South East when he backed President Muhammadu Buhari to beat Jonathan in the March 28, 2015 elections.

In his New Year message, Mbaka lambasted those who labeled him a false prophet and demanded to know who the false prophet is.

Speaking on the issue, Director of Social Com­munications of the Diocese, Rev. Fr. Joseph Offor noted that the Diocese embarks on postings of priests every six years.

Offor, who spoke to Daily Sun on phone, explained that there would be general posting and re-posting of priests this year.

“Yes, the postings will be announced this week. The bishop decides who should be posted where; it has nothing to do with a particular individual. It is a routine practice which is done every six years.”

Also reacting, Mr. Val Nnadozie, a politician and adoration faithful said: “For me, I think it’s just a rumour which is making the rounds. And it is my view that the bishop has the right to trans­fer any priest.

“However, it won’t be right if such a transfer is done with malice or as a pu­nitive measure for holding an opinion on an issue.”

Our source revealed that the transfer, which is due to be announced this week, may see Mbaka being posted to the adoration ground, Emene, which is not yet a parish.

He claimed his predic­tion was based on prophetic revelations, saying he was compelled by divine intu­ition and unsavoury socio-economic incidents in the country to voice out his concern.

Delivering a sermon titled “From good luck to bad luck” during the cross­over night Adoration mass to usher in the New Year, the radical priest said he and millions of other Nigerians were disappointed by Jonathan’s administration, arguing that it had failed to rescue the Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists in April 2014.

Interestingly, Fr. Mbaka had earlier anointed former President Goodluck Jonathan’s wife, Dame Patience Jonathan, as the next First Lady of Nigeria.
