Father Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has declared that the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi cannot be Nigeria’s president because of his stinginess.
Telescope.ng reports that he spoke during a prayer service on Wednesday, June 15, at the church in Enugu, which was attended by thousands of worshippers.
Mbaka said Obi was a man without a generous spirit, adding that “a gum-holder would not be accepted a Nigerian leader.
“It is better to have a president who is a gifted old man than a young man with ‘gum’ hands.”
According to him, former vice president Abubakar Atiku had shown that he is ready to run for office because he and Peter Obi are no longer in the running.
Mbaka said in a report by BBC Igbo services: “Peter Obi has a mouthful, he has nowhere to go unless he kneels down on the Adoration altar.”
He added that Obi had had insulted the Holy Spirit, saying that he helped Obi to become governor in Anambra and that he never returned to thank God.
Mbaka said: “Who doesn’t spend his money eating what you want to support? Do you want people to starve? If he becomes president, he will close our ministry.
“If Igbo people are looking for a representative in Nigeria, they are not the kind of person Peter Obi is. Whoever refuses to donate to the church should be the president?”
