The controversy surrounding the transfer of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the founder and spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has not died down yet.

Mbaka's members have accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  and Ohanaeze Ndigbo of influencing the transfer of the outspoken priest.

You will recall that Mbaka was moved from Christ the King Catholic church in GRA, Enugu metropolis, to Our Lady Parish, Emene.

Punch reports that a statement signed by the Adoration Ministry members,  said “What Bishop Michael Eneja saw and allowed, Bishop Gbuji protected and watered but Bishop Onaga uprooted in a most barbaric and despondent manner.”

Adding that “Most Nigerians know that the uncommon silence of Bishop Onaga over Fr. Mbaka’s prophesy of the defeat of the Goodluck Jonathan’s PDP-led government by President Muhammadu Buhari was not really for nothing.

“He was just waiting for the time to carry out the script of the stalwarts of the overthrown party.”

The members also said “Barely few weeks before the posting, the voice of a faction of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a socio-cultural group, was heard barking at Fr. Mbaka to ‘shut up’ over his prophesies.

“And now comes the posting done in such a manner as to really shut Fr. Mbaka up.”

“Sources close to Bishop Onaga disclosed to us that the Bishop said he transferred Fr. Mbaka out of pressure from Ohanaeze and PDP.

“The posting is not Holy Ghost oriented but PDPnized and Ohanaezenized, and any cleric be him pastor, bishop or cardinal that supported this is enemy of the Holy Spirit,” they said.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu state also condemned the Catholic Diocese in the state for transferring Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
