Enugu - The All Progressive Congress (APC) has criticised the decision by the leadership of the Catholic Church, Enugu Parish to transfer the Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka from Christ the King Parish, Government Reserved Area, GRA, of the state to Our Lady Parish, Emene, a suburb of the state, Vanguard reports.

The fiery priest and Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry has presided over Christ the King Parish for 20 years but is expected to served under another priest at the Emene Parish.

Fr. Mbaka was affected in the routine transfer of over 1 000 priests in the Catholic Diocese of Enugu with effect from January 30.
