Three months after it banned all priests and Catholic faithful from attending the Adoration Ministry, Enugu led by the controversial priest, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka the Enugu Catholic Diocese lifted the ban.
The ban followed Mbaka’s comments against the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
Enugu Catholic Bishop Callistus Onaga stated in his letter to Catholic faithful, that Mbaka had neglected pastoral directives and guidelines for the ministry by converting the pulpit to a political podium, commenting on political happenings in the country.
Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi confirmed that Mbaka Adoration Ministry ban has been lifted, says masses would begin to hold at The Adoration Ground.
“I can confirm to you that the ban has been lifted. That’s the situation now. There’ll be Mass there beginning from this Sunday and subsequent Sundays”. he said
Mbaka who also confirmed the development, said;
“the glory of God, Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria Amen, starts on Sunday 2nd October, 2022 with 10am Mass at the Adoration ground Umuchigbo Iji Nike Emene Enugu State.
“God bless you miraculously as you come to worship God with us.”
However, following the announcement, The Catholic Diocese of Enugu has removed Fr. Ejike Mbaka, as the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu.
Mbaka, who conceived the ministry, has been its spiritual director for several years.
He had barely announced his successor when Adoration faithful who had thronged the Emene ground to receive him after about three months of suspension went wild in protest. The congregation attempted to mob the new priest.
