NewsReel 28/4/2014 - Peter Obi at the Vatican, Charts a way forward for humanity

[ Masterweb Reports ] – Mr. Peter Obi has called on the peoples of the world to return to God as the solution to many problems and vices plaguing humanity at the moment. Speaking  to journalists at the Vatican City  yesterday shortly after the canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II  which took place at St. Peter’s Basilica Square, Obi said that partaking in such solemn celebration reminds us about Christians who really lived the life of Christ through heroic faith and faithfulness to God, saying that if other Christians keep their faith through living it out as Saints  Pope Paul XXIII and  Pope John Paul II did, that the world would have been a better place.


“Look at the virtues of the two popes that were canonized today (yesterday), one, Pope John XXIII was a reformer, for he convoked the 2nd Vatican Council which did a lot for the Church and aided in the growth of faith.  Look at Pope John Paul 11, he distinguished himself in the pilgrimage of faith”, Obi said.


Obi called on Nigerians to imitate the lives of these two great Popes, especially on their emphasis on peace in the world and genuine reconciliation among the peoples of the world. He called for genuine reconciliation among Nigerians and appealed to those who are out just to discredit the Government of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan to know that they are thereby doing violence to themselves.


Obi was on the Federal Government delegation to the Vatican, led by the Senate President, Hon.  Bonaventure David-Mark. Others include the Coordinating Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prof. Viola Onwuliri, the Minister of Environment, Mrs Lawrencia Labaram-Mallam, the Pilgrims Boss, Kennedy Opara, among others.
