Mbaka not removed – Catholic Secretariat

Published

FOLLOWING the news making the rounds that Fr. Mbaka was removed as the Chaplin of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, the National Director of Social Communications, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN), Fr. Mike Nsikak Umohc has refuted the information.

  He made this known through the statement he shared on his social media page.

  He revealed that he had an interview with the Director of Communications, Enugu Diocese, Rev. Fr. Ben Achi, who told him that “Fr. Ejike Mbaka was not removed from the Adoration Ministry, as many reports are suggesting.”

  He further said;”Rather, according to Fr. Achi, since it was recommended that Fr. Mbaka takes time away in solitude, in order to listen to what the Spirit of God has to tell him, he was allowed to propose a priest to administer in the interim, to the faithful at the Adoration Ministry.”

  “With the approval of his bishop, on Sunday, 2 October 2022, Fr. Mbaka introduced Fr. Anthony Amadi to the worshippers.

  “The announcement did not go well with the members of the ministry as they rejected the priest and it was alleged that the new priest escaped being lynched”.

  Fr Umoh also said what Mbaka needs now is prayer, “What every true Christian, and especially every true Catholic should do at this moment is to commit our dear brother and priest, Fr. Mbaka to God in prayer so that he may, through this moment, encounter God specially, come out stronger and better in recognising His will for him and gain more graces to channel those rare gifts for His glory and for the sanctification of the people of God and society at large.
