Peter Obi Calls On Nigerians Not to Attack Fr. Mbaka Over Statement Against Him & Atiku

Vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi has called on Nigerians not to attack Fr. Mbaka.

OkayNG.com recalls that Fr. Mbaka told Peter Obi that him and Atiku might end in shame after he refused to make donations to his ministry publicly.

Speaking through Val Obienyem, his media aide, Obi said it is “wrong for priests to be attacked based on what they said on the pulpits”.

He was quoted as saying he has a reverend sister and reverend father as siblings.

“Please let us leave Fr. Mbaka alone; our duty to him is prayers for God to lead him aright,” he said.

“While one may disagree with him, we should always acknowledge that he speaks and acts from the, higher perspective of wisdom.

“I have full respect for men of God and will always remember them in my prayers.

“When they go wrong as humans, subject to human frailties, ours is not to castigate them, but to pray to God to lead them aright.”

Obi described donations to churches as an “appreciation of God’s love and benevolence to us”, saying “they attract more rewards when done secretly”.
