not your average letter from a politician

By Jeff (articles ) | Oct 19, 2003

From a recent letter of Nigeria's president, Olusegun Obasanjo, to the Holy Father:

History will, no doubt, acquit Your Holiness as one of the greatest Popes of all time. The world acknowledges the zeal, energy, commitment and revolutionary verve with which you have pursued your brief this past quarter of a century, your recent frailty notwithstanding. Kindly accept our felicitations and best wishes for renewed strength and good health in the years ahead. Permit me to express our sincere appreciation to your Holiness for the great honour bestowed on us by the elevation of a great son of Nigeria, His Grace, Archbishop Olubunmi Okogie, to the exalted status of a cardinal. By this gesture, the Lord God has richly blessed our country through your holy intercession. I wish to assure you that all Nigerians are gladdened and inspired by this great development in our time. May the Lord God continue to guide and bless you in your continued endeavours to win souls for Christ.
