The Metropolitan Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, has acknowledged his place on the face-off between Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led authorities.
Kaigama reminded the Religious Director of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu of the Canon Legislation 285.
The regulation prohibits the clergy from partaking in something that’s unusual and unbecoming to the Catholic clerical state.
Kaigama spoke to the media on Friday at a convention on the 2021 World Communications Day celebration.
The bishop stated Mbaka, being a catholic priest took an oath throughout his ordination which reads: ‘I promise obedience and respect to you my native atypical and your successors’.
Kaigama famous that the oath Mbaka publicly took, like different monks, stays legitimate until he dies.
The bishop insisted Mbaka should abide by what the Catholic church teaches and stands for.
Citing the Canon Legislation 285, Kaigama stated monks are “prohibited from embarking on something alien to our clerical standing and what the Catholic church teaches us, we aren’t allowed to dabble into politics.
“It doesn’t imply we are able to’t be prophetic in condemning criminality and corruption, we are able to do this, that may be a prophetic mission.
“Partisan politics isn’t a part of our calling. If a clergy embarks on such unbecoming and international conduct, the church has an answer and the church is aware of what to do.”
