The Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, has said that he is not in support of the protest that happened at his worship centre on Sunday.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that followers of Mbaka on Sunday morning protested against the ban imposed on the ministry by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev Callistus Onaga.
Bishop Onaga had on Saturday in his pastoral injunction, enjoined all Catholics to stop visiting the ministry till further notice and advised all Catholic faithful to pray for Mbaka.
Reacting in a statement he signed on Sunday evening, Mbaka asked his followers to remain calm and obey Bishop Onaga.
“Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria is ever submissive to the mother Church. I enjoin all Adorers to know this and remain constantly in prayers for the manifestation of the will of God in the life of the Ministry.
“The life of the Adoration Ministry is in the hands of God under the direction of the Chief Shepherd of the Diocese,” Mbaka’s statement reads in part.
Last week, the cleric described Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) as being too stingy and unfit to be the next president.
Following the public outburst, Calistus Onaga, the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese sanctioned the cleric and shutdown the church.
