APC threatens Fr. Mbaka over call for Buhari’s impeachment
All Progressives Congress (APC) has threatened to report the Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka to the world leader of the Catholic church, Pope Francis for calling for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment.
Recall that the priest yesterday said God is angry with the president therefore he should be impeachment if he fails to resign based on the level of insecurity in the country.
Reacting to this, Deputy national publicity secretary of APC, Yekini Nabena in a statement on Friday said if Mbaka fails to concentrate on his spiritual calling his person and source of inspiration will be exposed.
Nabena said “it was unfortunate for a man of God who is supposed to deploy all known spiritual means of averting crisis but rather threatening a democratically elected government for his own personal benefits while pretending to be speaking for the people.
“One would wonder who Father Mbaka is emulating because the Lord Jesus Christ did not threaten to bring down the government during his own time, in fact, Jesus Christ obeyed and honoured constituted authority. That’s why he paid his tax.”
He called on Father Mbaka to concentrate on his spiritual calling and stop speaking like politicians who he has been dining and wining with.
”If Mbaka has found another political ally, it is better to leave a political message for politicians,” he said.
Nabena further explained that call for Buhari’s resignation or impeachment because of the current challenges in the country is ungodly.
“Father Mbaka should not, however, take his luck too far because there is a lot to tell the Vatican and the Pope about his person and his sources of inspiration”, Nabena added.
He urged other clerics in the country to emulate the likes of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Pastor WF Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Ministry, and many other true men of God who will rather fast and pray to avert a crisis in the country instead of threatening the government of the day.
