ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) –Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), has issued a stern warning to politicians, making it clear that his bazaar is exclusively intended for generating revenue through donations.
In a video recorded during one of his church programs, the cleric stressed that politicians should abstain from attending his bazaar if they do not intend to contribute financially.
Furthermore, he went on to warn that his ministry will sever its connections with banks and businesses that do not make contributions, underscoring his intention to run the bazaar as a purely profit-driven enterprise.
He emphasized his desire for participants who are willing to partake in the customary breaking of cola, symbolizing their commitment to financial support.
He said, “On 12th November, we will have a bazaar. The agenda is mega wealth. Not meager, mega wealth.
“Everyone should go and prepare well for it. Save what you will use to show God appreciation. At least once in a year, you show appreciation to God.
“Come along with all our friends. Don’t come with someone who will be bad luck for us. Or someone who will come here to make trouble. Or someone who will come here that day and refuse to break cola.
“What we have that day is giving money to God. If you know you wouldn’t want to participate in it, don’t come.
“Bazaar has a spirit that accompanies it. When we see you, you will be given a microphone to come and kill a cow for God. It’s not an insult, it’s a …for God.
“But if you say no and would want to make trouble for us because you know the way to the Bishop’s house or anywhere else, you will only meet trouble at the end of it.
“I can’t understand how someone would come for a bazaar and refuse to break cola and a Rev Father would be asked to go and apologize to him. And it’s being told as a story. The one who’s right then becomes wrong and vice versa.
“Let it not happen again, because if someone tries it again, he will be forced to beg for food with empty plates in the street.
“Anyone that will put us in trouble again, there’s nothing he puts hand on that will progress. You don’t need to be told that God is in our midst here. So if any makes trouble with us, he’s finding God’s trouble.
“If you put your hands in whatever that will happen to me, you will be embarrassed. You may not know the one I’m worshipping but I know him.
“All the banks we have relationships with should come and do something for God in the bazaar. If they don’t come, it means they don’t want our relationship again. Yes, it’s business.
“We thank Fidelity and Zenith banks so far. They have been cooperating. Last year Fidelity bank broke cola with N5 million. The Prado jeep I drive was given to me by the Zenith bank.”
