Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), has urged adoration members to stop castigating Bishop Callistus Onaga and continue praying for Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Mbaka issued the warning while addressing members of the Adoration who converged at the adoration ground on Wednesday in Enugu for prayers.
He also urged them to keep away from the ground in obedience to His Lordship order, adding that the closure of the Adoration was still in force and all activities remained suspended in obedience to the directive of the Bishop.
Fr Mbaka Makes U-Turn, Charges Supporters To Pray For Peter Obi
“I’m a priest of the Catholic Church and the Bishop is my father, I swore an oath to obey him and his successors. I can not do otherwise.”
The fiery cleric also urged them to continue praying for Mr Peter Obi stressing that he was one of them, a brother and friend.
“I have come to bless you and to dismiss you, I don’t want you to go to the main road. I don’t want you to be pugnacious or to be cantankerous,”
He added that he does not want them to be violent or classified as bandits for we are not bandits.
”We are obedient children of God, we love the mother church and the mother Church loves us so much,”
