In this article, the late Professor Efemie Ikenga-Metuh reflects on the basic message that Pope John Paul II delivered on the occasion of his 1998 visit to Nigeria. That message, says Metuh, could be summarized in two words: Reconciliation and Dialogue. It will only be when Nigerians begin to dialogue frankly and respectfully with one another that they will be able to come to reconciliation. And in reconciliation is the key to deliverance from the situation of corruption and injustice in which Nigeria is still so sadly held hostage. In diesem Beitrag überlegt der jüngst verstorbene Professor Efemie Ikenga-Metuh die Grundbotschaft, die Papst Johannes Paul II bei seinem Besuch in Nigerien 1998 anbot. Diese Botschaft lässt sich nach Metuh in zwei Worte fassen: Versöhnung und Dialog. Erst wenn die Nigerianer beginnen, offen und rücksichtsvoll miteinander in Dialog zu treten, werden sie fähig sein, sich zu versöhnen. Und die Versöhnung ist der Schlüssel, um aus der Situation von Korruption und Ungerechtigkeit herauszukommen, die Nigerien immer noch so schwer bedrückt.
