Catholic Diocese of Enugu has reacted to Fr. Mbaka’s defamation of Peter Obi.
In an official letter written to all the people of God and the General Public, the letter put up a disclaimer on the inflammatory political utterances by Fr. Camillus Ejike Mbaka.
The letter stated that the attention of the Diocesan Bishop, Most Rev. Callistus V. C Omaha has been drawn to the inflammatory political utterances by Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka, the Director of Catholic Adoration programs.
Fr. Mbaka was said to have attacked the reputation of Mr. Peter Obi, Labour Party Presidential Candidate, describing him as “a stingy man” and “joker”.
This is contrary to canon 229 of the 1983 code of canon laws that prohibits anyone from illegitimately harming the good name of a person.
And a violation of canon 287 which forbids priests from engaging in partisan politics. The Catholic Diocese of Enugu also condemns and disassociates herself from such an unbecoming and divisive utterances from Fr. Mbaka.
The Diocese also seized the opportunity to encourage the public to get their permanent voters card and vote for their preferred presidential candidate.
