Transfer Saga: Fr. Mbaka Not Bigger Than Catholic Church – Secretariat

3 min read



The Catholic Church has explained why it transferred fiery man of God, Father Ejike Mbaka of the Enugu-based Adoration Ministry.

The church said Mbaka’s transfer was not politically motivated as claimed by some persons, saying the controversial priest was only relocated to where he would be more useful to the ministry.

The Secretary-General of the Catholic Secretar‎iat of Nigeria, Reverend Father Ralph Madu, who made this clarification in an interview with Premium Times on Monday, said transfer of priests within the Catholic Church is a “normal church procedure.”

“Mbaka’s own is not an exception. The Bishop has the right to post any priest wherever he feels his service would be more useful to the church,” the cleric said.

Madu was apparently replying to a statement credited to the All Progressives Congress, where it claimed Mbaka’s relocation to Emene was fueled by his recent prophecies about the state of the nation.

Also father Mbaka had in his farewell speech admitted that he was going to suffer in his new place of assignment.

He said, “I know we are going to suffer within now and few months to come,” the priest said. I am going to suffer and suffer; I know that. I’m going to suffer because I have no place to put my head. I am going to suffer because I have no place to keep the Adoration Ministry’s assets. I know I’m going to suffer.”

On Sunday, the South-East zone of the All Progressives Congress alleged that Bishop Callistus Onaga was manipulated by external forces into effecting Mr. Mbaka’s transfer.
