The former Governor of Anambra State and the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP, Mr. Peter Obi speaking yesterday in Lagos, commended Francis Cardinal Arinze on his 60th anniversary as a priest, describing him  as  Nigerian’s exemplary export to the universal Church.
Describing Cardinal Arinze’s 60 years of priesthood as “no mean achievement,” Obi prayed to God to continue to grant him the health of mind and body for more service to God and humanity.

Using him as an example, he said that he was among Nigerians that worked outside the country and yet rivalled the best.  “When you look at people like him, who excelled both within and outside the country, you are persuaded to believe that the problem with Nigeria is not human resources, but getting the right people to take charge of the affairs of the country”, Obi said.
Obi who reiterated that  Francis Cardinal Arinze was able to prove himself as a Prince of the Church,  attributed it to rigorous selection process, where what he did in the past was a major determinant.  Obi called on Nigeria to learn to  do the same – evaluating the past of those they wish to entrust with the governance of the country. In his words: “Before making a choice, we should ask what the person has done in the past,  has he created wealth? Has he showed marked interest in education? How many people has he employed? This are necessary questions.
