Popular Catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka, has warned that politics is dividing Nigeria.
Revd. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the founder of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), stated this during a sermon at the Adoration Ground on Sunday, March 26.
He described politicians as hawks and vultures and declared that they offended God during the just-concluded 2023 elections, but he had begged God for forgiveness on their behalf.
“I apologise on behalf of all the priests and pastors for our shortcomings, particularly during the election and in this political period. We have offended God in the process but let God forgive us because we got it wrong.
“The power of God is above any rigging, the country is rotten, let us use the times we are expensing for politicking to search for solutions to our problems. Politics is now dividing Nigerians and all these politicians I call them political hawks and vultures.” He said.
In other news, Mrs. Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, daughter of President-elect Bola Tinubu, has appealed to Nigerians for their prayers and support in order to help her father effectively lead the country.
She mentioned this at the Ansar-ud-Deen Society of Nigeria’s (ADSN) 28th yearly Ramadan Lecture and Special Prayer for the Nation on Saturday in Abuja.
The gathering was hosted at the ADSN Central Mosque in Maitama with the subject “Ramadan: Islam and Good Governance: the Role of Muslims.”
According to Tinubu-Ojo, her father’s success is crucial for the well-being of Nigerians.
“I call on Nigerians to pray and support our president-elect to make him succeed in making Nigeria the best for all. He cannot do it alone and Nigerians must support him, even after the elections.
“Those at the helm of affairs must help the needy and those also not at the leadership positions must also help the needy to engender societal and national development.”
