If I have a message for Tinubu nobody can stop it — Mbaka

Father Ejike Mbaka

Enugu-based Catholic priest Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka has said that nobody can stop him from delivering a prophetic message.

The spiritual director of Adoration Ministry said on Monday night, while delivering prophecies for the New Year 2024, that he would not stop because he has no control over such messages.

“I don’t know how it happens to me. I am not boastful of it. It comes to me once in a while. I did not get it through priestly ordination. It has been following me even before I became a Catholic priest,” Mbaka said.

The Catholic priest, who spoke mainly in the Igbo language, argued that, contrary to accusations against him, he does not meddle in politics.

He said he only delivers such messages as received from God.

“If I am sent, for instance, to deliver a particular message to (President Bola) Tinubu, nobody can stop it on this earth. I will deliver the message exactly as it was given,” Mbaka said.

I never made fresh comments against Peter Obi — Mbaka

He added, “If I am instructed to say that somebody will not win an election, even if the person is my blood brother, I will tell him about it privately. But if he doesn’t listen, I will say it publicly so that when it comes to fulfilment, I will not be counted among those who supported a failure because I can never support a failure.

“No matter how you want to understand it or misunderstand it, I do not prophesy because I am an ordained Catholic priest. Even if you ask my classmates in seminary school, I have been like that.”

Mbaka’s comments appeared to be referring to his scathing remarks against the 2023 Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Mbaka drew the ire of many, including the church’s leadership, in June 2022 when he said that Mr Obi would not win the 2023 presidential election because he was a “stingy man”.

His comments forced the leadership of Enugu Catholic Diocese to ask him to step down as the spiritual director of his Adoration Ministry in October and proceed to a monastery in Los Angeles, United States as part of a disciplinary measure against him.

The cleric only returned to Nigeria from the US in January 2023 and resumed activities at the ministry.
