According to the Daily Post, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the fiery Enugu Catholic Priest, has apologised and prayed for Labour Party Presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi.
Mbaka apologised after declaring that Peter Obi will never be President of Nigeria.
During his most recent sermon at the Adoration Ground, he stated that unless God ceases to exist, Obi will never smell the President’s seat, adding that it was preferable to have an old man as President than a’stingy young man.’
The comment by the Catholic priest had stirred diverse reactions from Nigerians who accused him of hating Peter Obi because he refused to donate to his church.
However, the cleric in a statement he personally signed said he had no intention to malign His Excellency, Peter Obiâ€™s image but to pray for him
He, therefore, apologized to Peter Obi and his supporters and prayed that God will bless them.
