Catholic priest in Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, during a sermon at his weekly Adoration Ministry on Saturday, condemned the recent agitation and protests for Biafra, describing the action as evil. The cleric urged youths in the South East and South-South to go back to their businesss as the protest could lead to their death.
“Locking up your shops and disrupting economic activities will not add any naira to your pocket, whatever grievance you have could be resolved through dialogue,” the cleric said.
He lambasted those leaders that were behind the agitation and protests, saying they should use their children for the struggle.
Mbaka commended President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing ministers from the zone and assigning them with good portfolios.
“President Buhari’s action has proven that the South-East has not been marginalised. I would have reacted if no minister emerged from the zone,” he said.
He said that the five states in the zone had a minister each as prescribed by the Nigerian constitution.
