The ban came after the recent controversy surrounding the disappearance and reappearance of the fiery Catholic priest, which also led to the shutdown of his Adoration Ministry.

It also explained that Mbaka still leads the chaplaincy, but the bishop (Onaga) can appoint any ministerial officer “to assist the chaplains to oversee the pastoral activities of the ministry.”

“There shall be no partisan politics either by way of active engagement or by prophetic naming of candidates for position of power,” Onaga said.

The directives in the letter dated June 3 coincided with the resumption of the ministry’s activities after it was suspended following his one-month private retreat.

In a recent clash with the Presidency, the vocal priest had demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari should resign or be impeached.
