His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan, Archbishop Emeritus, Catholic Archdiocese of Abuja, has extolled the virtues of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI,  describing his death as a gain to Heaven.

Onaiyekan made this remarks, while reacting to the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on Saturday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan.

Also, the Catholic Bishop of Oyo Diocese, Most Rev. Emmanuel Badejo, said that Pope Emeritus Benedict had gratefully returned to God.

Badejo said he was a Pope that respected the reality of history and engaged fruitfully with the Church, especially the West to emphasise on the liaison between faith and reason.

“He was not shy to respect the reality of history when he courageously retired a few years ago, because as he said, his energy and mind could no longer carry that responsibility.

“He, however, remained at the device of his beloved Church till the end as he said, by his prayers and presence.,” Badejo said. (NAN)
