The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) has reiterated that Catholic Priests under the canon law of the Church are banned from taking part in Partisan Politics.

This ensued after a dispute between the Catholic Priest, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu and Ex-governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi.

According to the CSN’s Secretary General, Reverend Father Ralph Madu, the Catholic Church was dissatisfied with the dispute and had asked appropriate authorities to take necessary action.

“While we are sure that Enugu Catholic Diocese, where Fr. Mbaka is incardinated, has or is taking appropriate measures on the reported incident, we wish to categorically reiterate that no Catholic priest is permitted to be involved in partisan politics.

“Liturgical ceremonies must never be used as an occasion for campaigns ahead of 2019 political activities. Catholic Church remains apolitical and would never support or subscribe to any political party.

He made it known that the concern of the Catholic Church is “peaceful election process, seen to be free, fair, credible and just, and a democratic governance that would herald peace, justice, equity, development and religious freedom for the common good.”

Madu made this known to journalists at a press conference, in Abuja on Thursday.
