Pastors, Priests Offended God During 2023 Elections — Mbaka

The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu (AMEN), Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka, has apologised on behalf of other clergymen in the country over their positions during the 2023 general election.

According to Mbaka, the pastors and priests offended God in different positions they took in the processes of the just-concluded election.

The fiery priest also apologised to God to forgive the clergymen who took different ways that were offensive to the church and God.

Mbaka however said he would not talk much of politics so as not to be sent back to the Monastery again by the leadership of the Catholic Church in Nigeria.

Naija News reports Mbaka disclosed this on Sunday during a worship service at the adoration ground, Umuchigbo-Nike in Enugu State.

He said: “I apologise on behalf of all the priests and pastors for our shortcomings, particularly during the election and in this political period. We have offended God in the process but let God forgive us because we got it wrong.

“The power of God is above any rigging, the country is rotten, let us use the times we are expensing for politicking to search for solutions to our problems. Politics is now dividing Nigerians and all these politicians I call them political hawks and vultures.”

The fiery clergyman also prayed for Nigerian women and their families, asking God not to allow blessings to depart from their families.

Mbaka, whose mother also celebrated the Mass, said motherhood comes with challenges and made special tributes to his mother whom he discloses laboured much during his birth.
