…extols him for serving course of peace globally

As former President Olusegun Obasanjo turns 83 on March 5, the Archbishop of Canterbury, England, Archibishop Justin Welby, has congratulated him ahead of the birthday.

In a handwritten letter, he said:”I write to wish you many happy returns of the day on 5th of March. At an age when many retire, you continue to serve the course of peace across the world, and especially in Africa.

“May God grant you blessing, wisdom, the assurance of salvation and confidence in His love for you in Cross and Resurrection in the peace of Christ.”

 
The Archbishop’s letter was presented to the former President by Bishop Precious Omuku at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
 
The Archbishop of Canterbury is the Senior Bishop and principal leader of the Church of England, the symbolic head of the Anglican Communion Worldwide and the Diocesan Bishop of the Diocese of Canterbury.

Receiving the congratulatory message, Obasanjo promised not to rest on his oars until global peace was achieved.”This is a special birthday gift,” he said, describing as challenging the request to continue to serve for peace.

“It is a challenge to do more than what we have done. You realise that everywhere we are, there is always an opportunity to work for peace and an opportunity to work for justice which is foundation for peace.“There is plenty of work to do. My prayer is that God will give us the wherewithal to do more.
