Catholic Church bans Mbaka from partaking in partisan politics

Catholic Church bans Mbaka from partaking in partisan politics


The Catholic church has banned the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka from partaking in partisan politics.

TheCable reported that in a letter to Mbaka, Catholic Bishop of Enugu diocese, Callistus Onaga, also converted the Adoration Ministry to chaplaincy.

The letter, which is dated June 3, contains the diocesan directives and guidelines for the conduct of the Adoration Ministry.

Unlike in the past where Mbaka solely oversees the activities of the ministry as its Spiritual Director, making it chaplaincy brings it under the control of the Enugu diocese and gives the bishop the power to appoint a chaplain to oversee its operations.

Although the bishop said Mbaka still leads the chaplaincy, he added that he (bishop) can appoint any ministerial officer “to assist the chaplains to oversee the pastoral activities of the ministry.”

“There shall be no partisan politics either by way of active engagement or by prophetic naming of candidates for position of power,” he said.

The directives were announced just as Mbaka is set to resume activities of the ministry which was suspended following his one-month private retreat.
