Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Catholic priest and director of Adoration Ministry, may be transferred out of his station, Christ the King Parish in GRA, Enugu state.

This comes on the heels of reports that there is a plot to transfer Mbaka which is aimed at affecting other priests.

However, according to an anonymous source, the church is afraid of the possible reaction of his followers, who make up more than 80% of the population of Enugu Catholic Diocese.


Commenting on the issue, Rev. Fr. Joseph Offor, the director of social communications of the Diocese, said that there would be general posting and re-posting of priests this year. He added that the Diocese embarks on postings of priests every six years.

He said: “Yes, the postings will be announced this week. The bishop decides who should be posted where; it has nothing to do with a particular individual. It is a routine practice which is done every six years.”

Also speaking on the development, Val Nnadozie, a politician and Adoration follower said:

“For me, I think it’s just a rumour which is making the rounds. And it is my view that the bishop has the right to transfer any priest.

“However, it won’t be right if such a transfer is done with malice or as a punitive measure for holding an opinion on an issue.”
