The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Adewale Martins, says Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual head of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, could be banned from preaching if he keeps deviating from the doctrines and tenets of the Catholic Church.
Archbishop Martins was appointed Archbishop of Lagos by the Pope in 2012.
Martins, while answering questions in an interview with the BBC Igbo, regarding Mbaka’s prophecy that Hope Uzodinma will somehow or anyhow become governor of Imo State.
The Archbishop said, Mbaka was under the Diocese of Enugu and did not report to him.
He, stated that, if Mbaka continued in the way he was doing things, the Catholic Church may stop him from ministering.
Mbaka’s new year eve prophesy which came to pass has become so controversial.
His words: “Fr. Mbaka falls under the authority of the Bishop of Enugu Diocese and therefore he has the responsibility of cautioning him. I can imagine that this must be giving the bishop some challenges.
“It must be giving him a bit of a headache and I feel sorry for him and I hope he will find some way of dealing with this matter that has been recurring. Of course, what could be done in the end is either to say, ok you receive the sanction of being stopped from public ministry. That is a possibility. If it is not done, there must be a reason.”
Martins who was ordained as a Priest in 1983 says that the Catholic Church world wide does not involved in Partisan Politics.
“It is utterly surprising that Fr Mbaka would go as far as naming one person as governor against another. It is embarrassing when you hear of priests or people in position of authority making statements that are clearly partisan.
These are some of the things you should know about Mbaka
Rev. Fr Mbaka was ordained as a priest in 1995.
This controversial Priest in 2002 also Prophesied that Chimaroke Nnamani, would not return to office in the election but he won and was returned to office for a second term.
In 2015, Mbaka prophesied that President Goodluck Jonathan would lose to the current President, Maj Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), which came true.
To many they take his Prophesy as permutation and guess work.
