A flashback video of Ejike Mbaka, spiritual director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), making a mockery of former Anambra governor, Peter Obi, for not donating to his ministry in 2018 has resurfaced.
Naija News earlier reports that, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, on Wednesday, said that Nigeria does not need a stingy president, adding that former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi will not win the 2023 Presidential election.
The cleric stated this during a prayer service held at his prayer hall on Wednesday, June 15, 2022.
The Catholic priest statement came after Obi failed to make donations at the ministry’s 2018 harvest and bazaar celebration.
Obi had attended the program alongside other politicians from the South-east.
Standing by his side, Mbaka asked him to “stay in front of this children of God and tell God what you will do for Him … or what that means is, you don’t want to do anything for God. This is common deceit.”
Obi replied: “Father, what I said is straightforward. You will come and show me the project so that the two of us will talk. That is what I said.”
Mbaka then accused the former governor of Anambra of making “political statement” to which he responded: “Father knows I don’t make political statements. Anyone here from Anambra state knows Peter Obi has never promised anything and failed. I am a fundamental Catholic. I do whatever I say at the church.”
The priest said in response: “In your capacity and what God has done for you as governor … God hates stinginess. What I am saying is not to please you, but what will save your life. Otherwise you and Atiku will fail.
“If there is a place they will coat words for you, it is not at Mbaka’s altar. You can save your political destiny. Or in 2019, you people will not even know how they did the election. What will make my brother to come for bazaar and he won’t even break kola?”
Mbaka went ahead to tell Obi how Ebonyi and Enugu governors made donations without announcing at the altar and urged him to do same.
“Your own is taking time,” he said, adding: “The way you and Atiku are moving will end in shame”.
“Let us continue our bazaar. You know since he is not supporting us, the ministry has been moving. If people start arguing like this, their downfall begins,” he said.
Obi is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, who would be contesting against the likes of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.
