2019: Mbaka defies ban, mobilisesd support for Buhari’s reelection
FIERY Enugu Catholic Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has urged Nigerians to pray hard to overcome what he tagged “impending unimaginable difficulty” in 2019, urging Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection in 2019.
The call by Rev. Fr. Mbaka who is also the Founder of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, to back President Buhari, came after few weeks the Catholic Bishops in the country barred Catholic priests and religious leaders of the catholic faith from endorsing any candidate for the forthcoming general elections.
Mbaka had on Tuesday during his New Year prophetic message and crossover service stated that the type of difficulty the country was going to face was such that has not been “witnessed in its 58 years history.
He also urged Nigerians to pray for the country and its leaders, adding Nigerians should support President Muhammad Buhari to continue his fight against corruption.
The clergyman insisted that the Catholic Church supports the fight against corruption and that was why it created “prayers against bribery and corruption.”
“A President that is fighting corruption needs to be supported,” he said.
It could be recalled that in a recent statement signed by Most Reverend Augustine Akabueze, President and Most Reverend Camillus Umoh, Secretary respectively of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), the Church declared that no priest or religious should publicly endorse politicians.
