Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) has explained that the spiritual leader of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, was not removed from the Adoration Ministry as many reports had suggested.

Director of Communications, Enugu Catholic Diocese, Rev. Fr. Ben Achi, explained to the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) on Monday, that Fr. Mbaka was only directed by the diocese to propose a priest to administer the worship centre in the interim to the faithful.

Achi said: “Since it was recommended that Fr. Mbaka takes time away in solitude in order to listen to what the Spirit of God has to tell him, he was allowed to propose a priest to administer in the interim to the faithful at the Adoration Ministry.  With the approval of his Bishop, on Sunday, 2nd October, 2022, Fr. Mbaka introduced Fr. Anthony Amadi to the worshippers. Unfortunately, some people were still not pleased, and would prefer that Fr. Mbaka remains. 

“What every true Christian, and especially every true Catholic should do at this moment is to commit our dear brother and priest, Fr. Mbaka to God in prayer so that he may, through this moment, encounter God and come out stronger and better in recognising God’s will for him and also gain more graces to channel those rare gifts for His glory and for the sanctification of the people of God and society at large.”

Achi maintained that the Catholic Church in Enugu Diocese and beyond loves Fr. Mbaka and cherishes him as an illustrious son, and prayed that Mother Mary, the Queen of all Apostles, interceded for him. 

However, ahead of 2023 general elections, the  fiery priest,  has said that God has decided the Nigeria issue and that many “killing themselves” over the presidential election were just wasting their time.

He warned Nigerians against false prophets who would come up with claims of God’s revelation to them on the election, insisting that, “everybody does not see vision; it is given to some people.”

Mbaka was speaking on Sunday while celebrating a mass that reopened the ministry after it was shutdown for three and half months by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Calistus Onaga.

The cleric who was transferred to the Monastery and replaced with Rev  Fr. Anthony Amadi said he was under instruction by God not to make known details of what was revealed to him about the 2023 presidential election yet.

“Early this morning today, as I was asking God about the Adoration Ministry and myself, the Holy Spirit led me into the temple; I was asking the Holy Spirit, can you give me a vision, instead of giving me a vision for the ministry, he gave me a vision for Nigeria.

“It will interest you to understand that there are public visions and there are private visions; there are some visions that should not be disclosed publicly. God opened the country Nigeria to me like a film; concerning this election you are killing yourself for, but he told me it is a personal one; ‘don’t disclose it now’. I am serving a Holy Spirit that reveals the future; they can’t stop it; even myself cannot stop it.
