The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group has blamed the controversial Adoration Ministry priest, Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka for delving into politics.
Rev Mbaka had during the week called for the President’s resignation or impeachment over his handling of the security challenges in the country.
According to Ohanaeze in a statement by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Fr. Mbaka “is a victim of use and dump.”
He urge Fr Mbaka to go home and sin no more.
He said, “What is happening recently between Fr. Mbaka and the presidency is quite a sad one. We see it as a relationship gone sour.
"We remember how they both enjoyed a robust relationship, with Fr. Mbaka campaigning vigorously for Buhari both during his first and second tenure.
“But now that the marriage has collapsed, the hell appears to have been let loose, with the presidency trying hard to mess Mbaka up.
“Mbaka might have made some mistakes and overstepped his boundaries joining politicians, but definitely he exhibited the courage to speak truth to power, he must have realized his mistakes. But why should Presidency cast aspersions on him for saying the truth?
“Mbaka has been forgiven for coming back to his senses. He should go and sin no more.
“Mbaka henceforth, should speak truth to power and stand by the suffering people of the southeast” .
The socio-cultural group advised Mbaka to cease from meddling in politics and recommended that he should concentrate on his healing ministry and leave politics for politicians.
