Cardinal John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan Archbishop of Abuja, Nigeria


Cardinal John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan Archbishop of Abuja, Nigeria

"It is a very courageous decision he took. As bishops, we are expected to retire at the age of 75 but popes have no limit, so it's entirely his decision. He did it in the best interest of the Church. ...

There's no problem at all. The Church goes on. We shall have another pope because the Church can never be left without a pope. A conclave of eligible cardinals will be summoned to vote for a new pope. Every cardinal is eligible for the position. We are not a political party, so it's not a question of what this party or the other ones want. I will be there for the conclave, by God's grace."
