Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Enugu Catholic Priest, has said he would rather feed the poor than acquire a private jet like other pastors.
Mbaka at his Adoration Ministry on Sunday queried why he should acquire a jet when there are poor masses to feed.
He said, ”Jesus said give them something to eat. We are ministers of God, it is not that Father Mbaka cannot fly jet but what am I doing with jet when my people have no job and no food to eat?
”It does not mean I cannot have millions in the bank, watching the money. Whatever God will give me that I will not use to serve the church and help the poor masses, let it not come to me. People should take things easy and understand me.”
But Mbaka maintained that he will not be silent for any reason.
”Those who think Mbaka will be quiet, you are wasting your time. Do you know how many people have died in under one month in a country like this, how much blood has been shed? They cannot ask me to keep quiet. No blood is worth being shed.”
He also vowed not to be silenced about the incessant killings in the country.
