The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has said Father Ejike Mbaka of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, is threatening the regime of the President, Muhammadu Buhari.
This is in reaction to a sermon delivered by Mbaka in which he called for the President to resign or be impeached over the issue of insecurity in Nigeria.
Reacting, Nabena in a statement on Friday faulted Mbaka’s call and threatened to report the clergy to the Pope if he continues to “cause disaffection” for the government.
According to him, the clergy who is supposed to use “all known spiritual means of averting crisis” is rather “threatening a democratically elected government for his own personal benefit while pretending to be speaking for the people”.
“One will wonder whom Father Mbaka is emulating because the Lord Jesus Christ did not threaten to bring down the government during his own time, in fact, Jesus Christ obeyed and honoured constituted authority,” he said.
“That’s why he paid his tax. We are calling on Father Mbaka to concentrate on his spiritual calling and stop speaking like politicians who it is obvious he (Mbaka) has been dining and wining with.
“If Mbaka has found another political ally, it is better to leave a political message for politicians.
“Calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to either resign or be impeached because of the current challenges is ungodly.
“Father Mbaka should not, however, take his luck too far because there is a lot to tell the Vatican and the Pope about his person and his sources of inspiration.”
