Catholic Bishops take on Mbaka ' Not all visions come from God'

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria has criticised Reverend Father Mbaka over the fuss he made following his recent transfer to another diocese.
Mbaka was transferred from Christ the Kind parish to Our Lady’s Parish Emene, which falls under the same diocese.
Following his transfer, the South East chapter of the ruling party- All Progressives Congress, condemned the Catholic Church for making the Priest move from the parish which was home to his popular Adoration Prayer Ministry.
 The APC also alleged that Father Mbaka was being victimised for his election prediction- that President Muhammadu Buhari would defeat former President, Goodluck Joanthan in the presidential poll.
On Sunday, February 14, at the opening session of the CBCN- the President of the Conference, Ignatius Kaigama, while chastising Father Mbaka, said the church’s leaders and priests must avoid “melodramatic displays that resembles modern broadway shows.”
“Those priests who tend to compete with so-called trendy pastors to dream dreams, see visions and utter prophecies are reminded that not all dreams, visions and prophecies are revelations from God.
“They are sometimes the product of one’s psychological disposition, brain waves or even the result of mental fatigue and should not be confused with absolute reality.”
“We need to think positively about the Nigerian project and act in a manner that builds rather than destroys.”
Meanwhile, the Assistant Secretary General of the CBCN and Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Felix Ajakaiye, while making his remarks, said: “When I am transferred I am transferred; no sensation should be attached.”
