Controversial Enugu Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has declared that the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi can never be Nigeria’s President.
Report gathered that Mbaka made the declaration at his Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria.
Mbaka, who did not mince words, said unless God ceases to exist, Obi would never smell the seat of the President.
He said it was better to have an old man as President than a ‘stingy young man’.
He said, “A stingy man, that cannot give people his money, with this hunger ravaging the land, and you are saying he is the one you want. You want to die of hunger? Are you people insane? Where is the Holy Spirit?
“It is now that Atiku is seriously contesting for President; now that he is contesting without Peter Obi; it is now that he is serious? We want somebody that is serious. Unless Peter comes here to kneel, if he becomes President, he will close down this ministry. What we are doing is spiritual,
“Listen, a good old man is better than a young wicked man; Peter Obi is going nowhere as far as God lives. If Igbos want a representative, it is not someone like Peter Obi.
“I should not have talked but I saw my video going round everywhere as if Fr. Mbaka wholeheartedly came out and apologized. No, I didn’t apologize wholeheartedly, it was out of duress. I had to obey my Bishop, in obedience I had to, it is not of my volition. I did it because I am a Catholic Priest, my Bishop said, do it, my own is ‘Yes my Lord’.
This is not the first time Mbaka is aiming a dig at Obi. He also verbally attacked Obi during the 2019 election.
His Full Speech As translated from the Igbo.
“A Good old Man is better than a young wicked man”
“It is Now that Atiku is serious contesting for the post of the President without Peter Obi as his running mate”
“A very stingy man that you can’t eat his money”
“Do you want hunger to kill you people? Is like you people’s head is not correct abi?”
“Go and listen to what Ebube mụọ nsọ said in Anambra state, but if it’s in Enugu, they would have said we should apologize to Soludo”
“As God in heaven lives, he isn’t going anywhere” if he wins, “I will shut down my adoration ministry if Peter Obi wins”
“If the Igbos wanted someone to represent them, then it shouldn’t be Peter Obi”
“I saw a video of myself circulating all over the place saying I apologized to Peter Obi. No, I never apologized to Peter Obi wholeheartedly. I apologized out of durex just to obey my Bishop and in obedience, I had to do it.”
“I apologized because I am a catholic priest and my Bishop said I should do so. I had to respect my Bishop”
“It was that video they were circulating all over the place where I was carrying a child and apologizing to Peter Obi that triggered me. I would have kept mute”
“I did not say Obi is a bad man oo, I only said he is a stingy man”
A hungry man doesn’t want a good man. What he wants is someone who is a freewill giver
“That man has lots of money but he is only after I, me and myself. Although there are some people he usually gives his money, but it won’t be of good to him
” I am very happy saying these words. Joy has been restored in me for speaking out”
“My apology was only but a poisonous curse against Peter Obi. Assuming he has sense, he would have come to adoration ground and apologize to me here at adoration ground after I dropped that apology note”
“Anyone supporting him is wasting his time. I know the role I played in bringing back Peter Obi to office when he was sacked from the Anambra state government house. Ask Ibeto, Arch Bishop Anikwenwa and Esulu uga who were in that meeting
” If you are close to Peter Obi, tell him to come here and apologize and fix those things he spoilt He said.
