We could remember that Outspoken Catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka, had earlier told Nigerians to use the just concluded general election to vote out President Goodluck Jonathan.
He told thousands of parishioners as his Adoration Prayer Ground in Enugu, Mr. Mbaka said President Jonathan had failed to stem the tide of insecurity and corruption in the country.
In the video, uploaded to You Tube, the priest said that although Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate is a Muslim, he would bring the needed change in Nigeria.
The PUNCH further quoted the priest as saying, “I love President Goodluck Jonathan and I used to be his ardent fan, but I want good for my people and that’s why I want Nigerians to vote out Goodluck Jonathan and vote General Muhammad Buhari. I don’t care if Buhari is a Muslim and from the North; all I care about is that Buhari can save Nigeria.”
After making the speech,  Catholic secretariat asks Enugu bishop to caution him, Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) also dissociated itself from the controversial New Year message. An upcoming pastor equally used the opportunity to attack Mbaka with a talk titled “Mbaka Why?”. His life was allegedly threatened as well. Subsequently before the election all bank accounts belonging to Fr.Mbaka and the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria(AMEN) were all frozen.
But as it’s stands now, there is no doubt that he was right when he said the Holy Spirit directed him to say so. Those that doubted him now bows in shame.
Mr. Mbaka is renowned for his blunt sermons, has a huge followership in the South East of Nigeria, where thousands of Catholics throng to his prayer ground for healing and miracles.
The Catholic priest had a running battle with Chimaroke Nnamani, the former Governor of Enugu State, over his scathing criticisms of the government leading to the governor allegedly sending assassins after him.
He also strongly campaigned against Ikedi Ohakim, who was Governor of Imo State, between 2007 and 2011, after the latter allegedly whipped a Catholic priest in public.
