statement said that judgment was long outstanding.

“We want to express our profound gratitude to the Catholic Diocese of Enugu for doing the needful.

When the Ministry was closed, we said that the decision was a harsh one considering the impact Fr.

Mbaka is making in the lives of millions of people, including those he is feeding and paying their bills.

“The closure of that Ministry no doubt took a toll on the lives of those his dependants; all the same, it is

better late than never. We commend His Lordship, Bishop Calistus Onaga for heeding to our plea and

that of many other Nigerians,” Okwu said.

The Catholic Church leadership needed to avoid a repeat of such development, which is being fueled by

envy against Fr. Mbaka’s rare spiritual gifts.”

“Some of his colleagues in the priesthood are envious of his gifts, but one thing they should understand

is that God gives grace. So, they should stop running to the Bishop to blackmail Fr. Mbaka.
