The Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria, Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka, on Friday apologised to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, for calling him a stingy man.
Recall that the cleric had on Wednesday said Obi would not become Nigeria’s President because ‘he is stingy.’
But the Catholic Diocese of Enugu State had disowned him.
However, Mbaka on Friday apologised to Obi and his supporters in a letter he personally signed.
In the letter, the controversial Catholic priest asked for understanding and forgiveness.
Mbaka prayed for the former governor of Anambra State, that God would grant him his heart desires and other presidential candidates.
He decried the increasing insecurity in Nigeria which he attributed to bad leadership and appealed to Nigerian youths to also pray that God in his mercy will give Nigeria man after his heart as the next president.
The statement read partly, ”I assure the people of God and Nigerians that I am praying for Good Governance and Good Leadership in this country and that God will give us leaders after His own Heart.
“As it stands right now, it is obvious that Nigeria is passing through indescribable insecurity challenges, an inestimable unemployment crisis, massive corruption, heinous crimes, and unbearable suffering engendered by bad leadership. I bear with my fellow countrymen and women in whatever we are passing through in this trying time. I call on the adorers and the entire people of God to join hands in praying that God will deliver us from the plans of the devil and its wicked agents.
“I am a servant of God and my intention is not to malign His Excellency, Peter Obi’s image, but to pray for him. May God’s will be done in his life. I pray to God whom I serve to give our beloved people good and excellent leaders who will take care of them and lead them to the promised land. Anyone who God wishes to make our leader is my choice. In this vein, I give my blessings to His Excellency Peter Obi and his supporters, I also give my blessings to the other candidates and their supporters whose intention is also to give Nigeria good leaders. In any way, the supporters of Mr Peter Obi feel offended by my utterances or however I was misunderstood by them, I ask for their understanding and forgiveness.”
