Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the fiery Catholic priest and founder of the highly popular Enugu-based Adoration Ministries, is celebrating his 20th year of priesthood in the Catholic Church along with his congregation and other worshippers.
Rev Father Ejike, it was who had warned the electorate that voting for the ex-president Goodluck Jonathan would spell disaster for Nigeria.
In a New Year’s eve sermon titled, “From Goodluck to Bad Luck” Ejike had prophesied that the president’s bird failed to fly in his spiritual exercise and he would spell disaster for the country if re-elected.
Subsequent threats to his life made him close down the worship centre some three months later. But the election results vindicated his prophesy.
President Muhammadu Buhari has showered encomiums on him, commending the cleric for his “extraordinary intrepidity and remarkable patriotism.”
Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, In a statement, described Mbaka as a great priest who is not afraid to speak the truth, even at the cost of his own life or being hated by those in power.
