Popular leader of Adoration Ministries in Enugu, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has said he never endorsed Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress, APC to win the recently concluded Anambra governorship election.
Recall that he had been accused of backing Andy Uba to succeed Governor Willie Obiano.
However, candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Chukwuma Soludo, won the election last week.
Soludo, 61, polled 112,229 votes beating PDP’s Valentine Ozigbo, who polled 53,807 votes, and Andy Uba who got 43,285 votes. While YPP’s Ifeanyi Ubah came fourth with 21,261 votes.
Speaking at his church on Sunday, Mbaka stated that photos of him endorsing Andy Uba on social media are false.
While stressing that those who shared the post are mischief makers, the controversial Catholic priest described all candidates as his friend.
He disclosed that APGA’s Soludo was his spiritual son who usually visits his home.
Mbaka said: “Last time I show in the social media a picture of me, Andy Uba and some other people and they wrote on it that Father Mbaka has endorsed Andy Uba. How? Where? When?
“When I have already said I have not endorsed anybody in Anambra. They are all my friends. Soludo is my friends, he comes to my house.
“He (Soludo) is my son, spiritually. So whoever put that picture is a mischief maker. That Andy Uba saga is satanic. And they can’t use me to cause trouble in Anambra.”
