Just In - Catholic Church Forbids Mbaka, Others From Participating In Politics

The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria has restated that Catholic Priests under the Canon law of the Church are prohibited from active involvement in Politics.
This response is due to the recent dispute between Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka, The Spiritual director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu and Ex-governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi.

CSN’s Secretary General, Rev. Fr. Ralph Madu, who spoke to journalists at a press conference, in Abuja on Thursday said that the Catholic church was disappointed with the fall-out and that necessary action will be taken.

“While we are sure that Enugu Catholic Diocese, where Fr. Mbaka is incardinated, has or is taking appropriate measures on the reported incident, we wish to categorically reiterate that no Catholic priest is permitted to be involved in partisan politics.

"All liturgical ceremonies must never be used as an occasion for campaigns ahead of 2019 political activities.

"Catholic church remains apolitical and would never support or subscribe to any political party.

"Our concern is for peaceful election process, seen to be free, fair, credible and just, and a democratic governance that would herald peace, justice, equity, development and religious freedom for the common good.”
