Nigerians have reacted to Reverend Father Mbaka’s assertion that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential contender for 2023, is stingy.
This follows the appearance on social media of a photo of Peter Obi with Pope Francis, the current Catholic leader.
Pope Francis is the Bishop of Rome and, as such, the leader of the Catholic Church and Vatican City.
Reacting to the new update, @iameronsman wrote: ‘Mbaka’ Parish priest wey Pope no know’.

Hitherto. According to Father Mbaka, Peter Obi will never become President of Nigeria until God ceases to exist.
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.
