The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Sunday condemned the decision of the leadership of the Catholic Church, Enugu Parish to transfer Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka from Christ the King parish in the government reserved Area, GRA, of the state to our Lady parish in Elene.
The spokesperson of APC South-East Caucus, Osita Okechukwu, speaking to newsmen in Enugu said, “It was wrong to punish the fearless priest for his prophecies which has proved to be from God”.
Okechukwu added, “Whereas we accept that the transfer of priests is a routine exercise of the great Catholic Church, however we do not wholly accept a situation where the church allows external forces to influence transfer as the Mbaka’s case suggests. “Otherwise, future liberation clergy who speak truth to power will be hamstrung to the detriment of the society. “Our major concern is the security implications and the fate of his flocks who are mostly the downtrodden who may find it difficult to go to Emene for salvation and healing. The party further said, if frowned at anything which will put Fr. Mbaka in harms way or deny his flocks healing.
