Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokri has publicly urged Pope Francis of the Catholic Church to relieve Father Mbaka of his work as a serving Father in the Church.
According to Reno, Father Mbaka is not fitting to be in the Catholic church as he has shot himself a couple of times with his meddling in politics. Taking to his Instagram page, he urged the Pope to see to it that Mbaka is made to resign as he does not deserve to be called a Father.
He captioned his post: Open Letter To Pope @Franciscus: Re Father Mbaka
You may or may not have heard of a certain Reverend Ejike Mbaka, a Catholic priest in Enugu, Nigeria.
At various times between the years 2015-2016, he made public pronouncements to the effect that God told him He had departed from Nigeria’s then President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
He claimed God told him that his opponent, @MuhammaduBuhari was (these are his exact words) “an answer to prayer”, a man who would “save” Nigeria, a “liberator” of Nigeria, and the “glory” of Nigeria.
He also in the year 2015 made false allegations against Mr. Jonathan, to the effect that Mr. Jonathan and his wife, wanted to assassinate him.
That I am willing to swear to an affidavit that that allegation is false, and that at the material time, I called on Reverend Mbaka to substantiate them with evidentiary proof, of which he never did.
That again in 2019, after Nigerians had gone through so much hardship under the said Buhari, a man of very strong religious bias, Reverend Mbaka made pronouncements to the effect that Nigerians should continue with Buhari, after he had publicly humiliated a fellow Catholic, Peter Obi, on December 3, 2018, for failing to make a public donation, and called him “stingy” and said “the way you and Atiku are moving will end in shame.”
Father Mbaka’s actions were against 2 Corinthians 9:7:
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
And then when Father Mbaka made a volte face on April 29, 2021, asking his former friend, Buhari, to resign, the President’s spokesmen revealed the next day that Reverend Mbaka had requested for contracts as pecuniary compensation for his support for Mr. Buhari.
Your Holiness, By virtue of the Public Procurement Act of 2007, it is a criminal offence to demand and get a government contract without an open public and transparent tender. To legally get a contract in Nigeria, you must tender publicly, and the government must accept the lowest bid. It is also unethical and unbecoming of a Catholic priest.
I thus call on Your Holiness to investigate this matter.
