The former Catholic Priest revealed why he left Priesthood after 15 years, stating that though he grew up in a Catholic home and developed an interest in the priesthood, leaving the priesthood was not an abrupt decision; it was something he took time to think through and was counselled for.

“First of all, I realized that to get any big blessing from God, you must be true to yourself in all aspect. I got in touch with myself and I realized the ecosystem of the Catholic priesthood is not where God really wants me to be,” he said.

“I grew up in a very Catholic environment, everyone was Catholic, even our goats and fowls were Catholic, I love it, I appreciated the church, I still appreciate church, I developed an interest for the priest and priesthood, ” he added.

He concluded his statement by disclosing that he didn’t leave the priesthood because a woman persuaded him to, as some have suggested.
