In a statement via the Facebook handle of the “Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria – AMEN”, he described such reports as ‘fake news’.
While advising those spreading the rumour to desist, Fr Ejike Mbaka warned that they could incur the wrath of God.
The statement reads: “The Enemy has done this!!! The fake news making a headline that Fr.Mbaka has declared Orji Uzo Kalu the next Nigerian president is the handwork of the enemy.
“Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka brings to the knowledge of the general public that he has never at any time, place or circumstance declared that Orji Uzo Kalu would be the next Nigerian president.
“This report is malicious, a hard work of mischief makers and wicked individuals who are on demonic and satanic assignments to damage his reputation.
“Therefore, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka is cautioning those spreading the “fake news” in his name against attracting the wrath of God upon themselves and their families.”
