Ahead of the 2019 presidential election, Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has addressed the online publication which alleged that the Catholic priest declared support for Atiku's presidential bid.
“I give the reporter seven days to recant the report or apologise, or I will take action against such vulturous and satanic character assassins who have been working hard to destroy my reputation or make me a false prophet.
“I am busy with the work of God, and I am now in a deeper contemplative encounter with the awesome God. My concerns now are the healing, deliverance, blessing and breakthrough, etc of my people.
"I don’t talk carelessly. I speak when God has given me a word. For now, God has not revealed anything about Atiku Abubakar.”
According to Ugwuoke, Fr Mbaka has been committed to the ongoing 2017 crusade of Awesome Miracles from the Awesome God in the ministry which started last Wednesday.
“He has not been seen or heard in any other public or private forum where he could have made such declarations as claimed by the reporter.
“He is such a courageous man of God whose messages are always dubbed in video CDs for all who care to watch and listen, no matter whose ox is gored.
“None of those declarations in the said media report was Fr Mbaka’s. We challenge the fabricator of that report to produce the proof or evidence to back up the claim or recant the publication, forthwith, else, he should brace up to face the consequence of impersonation and mendacious report,” Ugwuoke warned.
