President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday told the Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Reverend Rowan Williams, that he was convinced that God had a purpose for making the leader of Nigeria at this time.
“I could not have attained this position without God, and God has a purpose for Nigeria. I believe God wants me to make an impact in the lives of Nigerians,” he said
Jonathan, who spoke while receiving a special message from the Archbishop, conveyed by the Very Reverend Justin Welby, a Special Envoy to State House, said it was for this reason that the fear of god would determine how he governed the country.
He expressed appreciation to the Archbishop for his interest in Nigeria, particularly during and after the elections.
The president said that Nigeria was saddled with immense leadership responsibility in Africa, and added that his passion to improve future elections in the country remained unquenchable.
Jonathan also received a special message from President Alpha Conde of Guinea Conakry, delivered by Mr. Mamadou Traore, a minister in the presidency. (Leadership)
