Okon Lagos, the Nollywood actor, says the statement by Ejike Mbaka, spiritual director of Adoration Ministries (AMEN), on Peter Obi is “shameful”.
Obi is a former governor of Anambra and presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
During a prayer service at his church in Enugu on Wednesday, the clergyman had said Obi can’t be Nigeria’s president because he is “stingy”.
“It is better to have a president who is a gifted old man than a stingy young man,” Mbaka said.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, Okon described the words of the clergyman as “a shame”.
The comic actor also insinuated that the cleric has turned the house of God into a “den of thieves”.
Okon charged Christians to ask God for “discerning enablement” to distinguish between the “house of prayer and den of thieves”.
“This is such a shame. Anyways for me, whenever I go to any church or place of worship, I ask myself this: “if Jesus Christ were to come here now with a whip in hand, will I be flogged too?” he wrote.
“While he was conducting the purge in the temple with a whip, he said “my father’s house is a house of prayer, but you have turned it into a den of thieves!!
“Always pray to God to give you the discerning enablement to distinguish between a house of prayer and a den of thieves because in nearly all cases, they look exactly the same.
“Appearance is not reality.At the end of the day, Rev Fr. Mbaka is only but almighty man of God and not ALMIGHTY GOD OF MAN.
“He does not have the final say on anybody’s destiny except he is the one who created the person.”
