Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), has refuted prophesying against Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.
His denial comes after some media outlets reported that Mbaka prophesied that the former Anambra governor will fail in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.
The reports claimed that he made the prophecy during the last Sunday mass.
Speaking on the allegation, Mbaka said he “never mentioned Obi, not to talk about Peter’ during the Sunday mass”, advising the purveyors of the news to apologise.
“After handing over to Fr Anthony Amadi on Sunday, I started hearing that Fr Mbaka spoke against Peter Obi.
“I, Rev Fr Mbaka on that Sunday never mentioned Peter not to talk of Obi. Please whoever is being used by the devil to blackmail me in the name of doing any job for anybody, is satanic and should apologise, withdraw such nefarious, and satanic utterances and be careful when you want to harm the image of a man of God.
“Whoever did that, I have forgiven you, but I want to hear that you have apologised and withdrew what you said against me on that day. Just to put the Adoration ministry in trouble.
“Please as I have said, I heard some people are planning to protest. I have not asked anybody to protest for me. And I don’t want to hear that there is any protest done to express anger towards my journey to the monastery.
“Help me fellow adorers to stop any kind of protest that anybody will carry on my behalf to please me. Instead of the protest, or demonstration geared towards helping me, it may jeopardize my priestly call.
“Therefore, encourage peace, encourage love, within this time and do more prayers, and God of heaven will do the rest for us in Jesus’ name.”
