The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria ( AMEN) Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has announced that he would be shutting down his ministry for one month.
Mbaka made this known on Tuesday in a statement.
TheFact Nigeria gathered that the closure is coming days after the Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga had asked father Mbaka to proceed on a 30-day retreat following his public criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari(PMB) led administration.
The Enugu based Catholic priest had on Sunday tendered an open apology to the Catholic church for the actions of his followers that resulted to the destructions of properties belonging to the church.
Consequently, Mbaka said no activity would take place at the ministry during this period.
The statement reads:“Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.
“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.
“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability. Adoration! Holy spirit is our power, ” he said.
