Ejike Mbaka, a popular Catholic priest and the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, said he spends an average of $2 million monthly on charity.
The Catholic priest disclosed this while presenting N18.8 million bank draft to the management of the Annunciation Specialist Hospital, Enugu, on behalf of Multi-Life Savers for the Less Privileged, a non-profit arm of his ministry, Punch reports.
He equally gave N50,000 and a bag of rice each to 200 Enugu members of the Charismatic Renewal of Nigeria.
Mbaka explained that the N18.8 million was to cover accumulated free medical services that the hospital had rendered to indigent people on his bill, amounting to over N14 million.
He said, “We are basically here to continue the relationship that this wonderful health facility has with our charity organization and Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria.
“We presented a bank draft worth N18.8 million to them to cover the accumulated bills of indigent patients they had treated at our instance, plus a deposit for other indigent patients that would come here in future.
“We do this every day and it is on record that there is no month that I don’t spend at least $2 million on charity. So, this visit is just one out of several charity outings that we undertake without any publicity.”
