Why Catholic Church Transferred Rev Mbaka From Enugu To Emene Parish



.Says Posting Not Punitive


The transfer of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka from Christ The King Parish Enugu to our Lady Parish, Emene was not a punitive measure, says Secretary General of Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Rev Fr. Ralph Madu.

In a statement, the church said the posting was a normal “church procedure”
 Rev Fr.Mbaka was surprisingly transferred out of Enugu parish last Sunday, a move the Catholic Church said it is in order.

“Mbaka’s transfer is not an exception; the Bishop has the right to post any priest wherever he feels his service would be more useful to the church”

His positing should have been a privilege, not a punishment which the Bishop can do because he has the power.

“If he Mbaka says it is a punishment, then it’s open for further investigation.

“Posting is a regular thing, a priest can be transferred after two, three, four years it depends on the discretion of the Bishop.

“That Ministry (Adoration Ministry) is his private ministry.  It does not belong to the Church.

“Overseeing a parish is a full time job.

“Overseeing a Ministry is a bigger task. If the Church decides to take him somewhere, where he will have more time to carry out his Ministry how is it punitive?

Madu said Mbaka had done things that were unacceptable to the Church in the past but received no punishments from them.

Mbaka had said the transfer is a “calculated move” to make him “suffer”
