The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria have rejected Father Mbaka’s apology to Peter Obi, which the controversial priest issued after an embarrassing episode with the PDP Vice Presidential candidate.
Catholic Bishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga who relayed the stand of the Catholic Bishops, stated that they rejected Father Mbaka’s apology to Peter Obi because it was no apology but apologetics that did not comply with what they directed him to do.
Speaking during the weekend at a diaconate ordination mass celebrated at the Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu, Onaga, under whose jurisdiction and supervision Fr. Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry Enugu operates said;
“Before we met Mbaka, he had already apologised to Obi but when we listened to the apology, we realized it was no apology but apologetics, so we mandated him to do a written apology to Obi which he agreed to do and actually did it in our presence.
“He was remorseful and regretted his action. We believe he would do the needful by sending across the written apology.”
