The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has declared that the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi will never become the next President of Nigeria.
Mbaka spoke during a prayer service on Wednesday at the Adoration ground in Enugu, which was attended by thousands of worshippers.
Mbaka, who did not mince words, said unless God ceases to exist, Obi would never smell the seat of the President, stressing that it was better to have an old man as President than a ‘stingy young man’.
“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?
“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 did not say he is a bad man; I said he is a stingy man. A hungry man wants someone that is generous; the man has so much money, but he is only concerned about ‘I, me, myself’. But that money will not be useful to him.”
Meanwhile, Nigerians have taken to social media to express their displeasure over the Catholic Priest’s comments.
While some Nigerians were of the opinion that Mbaka made the declaration because he failed to manipulate Peter Obi to donate money to his church, others called on the Catholic Church authority to call the cleric to order.
