President Jonathan Hail’s Pope Benedict XVI’s Exemplary Courage and Wisdom
President Goodluck Jonathan applauds the exemplary wisdom and courage shown yesterday by Pope Benedict XVI in his decision to voluntarily relinquish the Papacy because of his advanced age and growing inability to keep up with the physical and mental demands of the Office.
On behalf of himself, the Federal Government and people of Nigeria, President Jonathan wishes the Pope a very peaceful and restful retirement at the end of this month.
The President trusts that even in retirement, Pope Benedict XVI will continue to contribute to the spiritual well-being of the world in every possible way and that he will continue to offer prayers to God Almighty for global justice, equity, peace and progress.
He prays that as they prepare to assemble in the Vatican to elect a new Pope, God Almighty will grant members of the College of Cardinals the wisdom and divine insight they will require to bring forth a worthy successor to Pope Benedict XVI who will build on the outgoing Pontiff’s
commendable achievements as head of the Worldwide Catholic Church.
