Once upon a time,  Igwe Patrick Eze, the traditional ruler of Egali Amalla in Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State and patron of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, had the habit of speaking to members of the press (every year) concerning what interests him at each moment about his people as well as Nigerians as a whole. Everytime the royal father chatted with the press; everything turned out fine, smooth, meaningful, and his message and tone of voice were usually candid.

One day, he spoke to the press revealing what makes him laugh at a catholic priest – Fr. Ejike Mbaka – who appears insincere and hungry for cheap political recognition. The catholic priest had called the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan and Senator Ike Ekweremadu who visited his Church on phone severally expecting some thing tangible like an oil well, but they did not answer his calls and nothing came his way, so the priest decided to fire back.

Because Fr. Mbaka took annoyance and fired back at President Jonathan (whom he had “blessed” for a second term 2 months earlier)  for not giving him something “tangible” enough, Igwe Patrick Eze took interest in the matter and soberly reflected on the political utterances the priest had made in the past.  The royal father recalled that in 2003, Fr. Mbaka predicted that if Chimaroke Nnamani won reelection the same year, he would remove his suntan. But when Chimaroke retained his seat as governor, the priest didn’t keep his words yet he still criticized others who fail to keep theirs 100%. Again, during the time when Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo was the National Chairman of PDP he preached a message tilted: Nsukka Ndo nu, meaning Nsukka sorry, predicting political doom for Nsukka and insulting thousands of Nsukka people who always troop to his Adoration prayer like sheep. But till date, no political gloom or doom of any uncommon magnitude had befallen Nsukka. There was also the experiment the priest did with four pigeons which he was commanding to fly out and all that.

Because Fr. Mbaka’s political utterances sounded so outrageous, especially the so-called 2015 New Year message, people and several opinion leaders had began to rumor that the catholic priest suffered a mental problem. Until  finally, Igwe Patrick Eze came out to tell the press he didn’t see it that way. Instead he had been laughing whenever he remembered the political statements of the priest whom he thought appeared insincere and craving for cheap political recognition.
