The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Father Ejike Mbaka has again attacked Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in next year’s elections, saying that he is a stingy man and therefore that disqualifies him from being Nigeria’s President.
Mbaka, who spoke during a prayer service on Wednesday at the church in Enugu which was attended by thousands of worshippers, said the former Governor of Anambra State was a man without a generous spirit, adding that “a gum-holder would not be accepted a Nigerian leader.”
“It is better to have a president who is a gifted old man than a young man with ‘gum’ hands.”
According to him, former Vice President Abubakar Atiku had shown that he is ready to run for office because he and Peter Obi are no longer in the running.
“Peter Obi has a mouthful, he has nowhere to go unless he kneels down on the Adoration altar.” Mbaka said in a report by BBC Igbo Services.
He added that Obi had had insulted the Holy Spirit, saying that he helped Obi to become Governor in Anambra and that he never returned to thank God.
Mbaka said: “Who doesn’t spend his money eating what you want to support? Do you want people to starve? If he becomes president, he will close our ministry.
“If Igbo people are looking for a representative in Nigeria, they are not the kind of person Peter Obi is. Whoever refuses to donate to the church should be the president?”
In the run up to the 2019 elections, specifically during the Ministry’s 2018 December harvest and bazaar celebration, Mbaka had attacked then PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Obi, who was the Vice Presidential candidate, saying that they “might end in shame” because Obi failed to make a donation at the bazaar celebration.
He later apologised to Obi.
