Nigerians have reacted to the claim by a popular clergyman, Reverend Father Mbaka that Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi is stingy.
This comes after a photo of Peter Obi with Pope Francis, the incumbent Catholic leader, appeared on social media
Pope Francis is the Bishop of Rome, and hence the Catholic Church’s and Vatican City’s leader.
Reacting to the new update, @iameronsman wrote: ‘Mbaka’ Parish priest wey Pope no know’.
@Olayemiprince wrote: ‘Mbaka in the mud.’
@OgboiSolomon wrote: ‘The problem of the east is with themselves. Too stingy but he will work. And not too stingy but will not work. Which one is better. I weep for my Eastern people, Who’s marginalizing who? You give yourself name for others to call you. With this attitude if the Eastern. You can only see the PROMISEland, but will never get there.’
Hitherto. Father Mbaka declared that unless God ceases to exist, Peter Obi would never ascend the throne as President of Nigeria.
He said, “A stingy man, that cannot give people his money, with this hunger ravaging the land, and you are saying he is the one you want. You want to die of hunger? Are you people insane? Where is the Holy Spirit?
“It is now that Atiku is seriously contesting for President; now that he is contesting without Peter Obi; it is now that he is serious? We want somebody that is serious. Unless Peter comes here to kneel, if he becomes President, he will close down this ministry. What we are doing is spiritual,
“Listen, a good old man is better than a young wicked man; Peter Obi is going nowhere as far as God lives. If Igbos want a representative, it is not someone like Peter Obi.
