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 on Thursday.

Mbaka announced the reopening of the ministry on Sunday, October 2, 2022.

The Bishop of the Diocese, Most. Rev. Callistus Onaga on June 18, 2022 pronounced the indefinite ban in a letter he personally signed to all clerics, religious and lay faithful, directing all Catholic faithful and clergy in the diocese from having anything to do with the Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry.

The ban followed scathing remarks by Mbaka, who described Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi as stingy.

The cleric declared that Obi could only become President if God ceases to exist, adding that the former Anambra Governor was cursed.

According to the priest, it was better to have an old man as President than a ‘stingy young man’.

However, Mbaka’s remarks drew flaks from various quarters, prompting the underfire priest to immediately backtrack and apologise for maligning Obi.
