Deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has threatened to report and expose Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka’s source of inspiration over his call for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment.
Recall that the Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu had made the call following the high level of insecurity in the country.
The clergyman had said Buhari failed Nigeria woefully and that he should resign now.
But reacting, Nabena in a statement on Friday, said if Mbaka continues to “cause disaffection” and threaten the Buhari-led government, he will be reported to the world leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis.
According to Nabena, “it was unfortunate for a man of God who is supposed to deploy all known spiritual means of averting crisis but rather threatening a democratically elected government for his own personal benefits while pretending to be speaking for the people.
“One would wonder who Father Mbaka is emulating because the Lord Jesus Christ did not threaten to bring down the government during his own time, in fact, Jesus Christ obeyed and honoured constituted authority. That’s why he paid his tax.”
The APC Chieftain called on Father Mbaka to concentrate on his spiritual calling and stop speaking like politicians who he has been dining and wining with.
”If Mbaka has found another political ally, it is better to leave a political message for politicians,” he said.
Nabena further explained that call for Buhari’s resignation or impeachment because of the current challenges in the country is ungodly.
”Father Mbaka should not, however, take his luck too far because there is a lot to tell the Vatican and the Pope about his person and his sources of inspiration”, Nabena added.
He urged other clerics in the country to emulate the likes of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Pastor WF Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Ministry and many other true men of God who will rather fast and pray to avert a crisis in the country instead of threatening the government of the day.

Ortom: Anyone Against Southern Governors’ Resolve Has Hidden Agenda
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom says any Nigerian opposed to the position of Southern Governors regarding the ban on open grazing of cattle has a hidden agenda.
Governor Ortom spoke on Thursday at the Holy Ghost Parish Hall, Makurdi during an address on the occasion of ‘Media Week and Communications Day 2021’, organised by the Catholic Diocese of Makurdi.
He noted that his colleagues from the Southern part of the country had towed the right path towards addressing insecurity in Nigeria, stressing that open grazing was no longer feasible in the country due to development and population growth.
Governor Ortom said Nigeria is a great country with great potentials and should, ordinarily, have no business with poverty if only there was guaranteed security for lives and property and the people are allowed to remain stable in their localities to explore opportunities in farming and other ventures.
The Governor expressed appreciation to the Church and Muslims, as well as residents and citizens of the state for remaining supportive of his administration.
He also acknowledged the good reportage of government policies and programmes by the Directorate of Social Communication, Catholic Diocese of Makurdi and all the media groups in Benue, pointing out that his administration would always welcome constructive criticism.
The Governor who hinted at his administration’s plans to commence teaching of vernacular in schools in the next academic session said children must be trained and supported to inculcate reading in them, even as he described communication as key in the society.
Catholic Bishop of Makurdi Diocese, Most Reverend Wilfred Anagbe stated that social communication was meant to uplift humanity and society, stressing that it is a positive aspect of the reality of life and not the other way round.
Bishop Anagbe who advocated for the teaching of history and vernacular in primary and secondary schools in the state said language defines a man and so should not be allowed to go extinct.
Ortom: Removing History Subject From Curriculum Is Evil

The governor, who spoke in Makurdi at ‘Media Week and Communications Day 2021’ organized by the Directorate of Social Communications, Catholic Diocese of Makurdi, said the removal would prevent posterity from having knowledge of important events in the country.
According to him, if the Federal Government fails to restore the subject, the state government would initiate law to ensure it is taught in Benue schools. grin
The governor said: “Removing the subject History from the country’s school curriculum is an evil agenda to prevent the young generation from knowing their past.
“Even if Nigeria won’t restore the study of history to the school curriculum, we in Benue will initiate a legislation to make history a compulsory subject in schools in the state.
“Our children need to know how their forefathers lived on this land hundreds of years ago. Our children need to know what took place at Ushongo Hills in 1804 and why this land and our people were not conquered till this day.”
