African priest and theologian new member of the Roman Curia
Adoukonou is known to be extremely dedicated to the development of Africa. In a paper published in 2003 on the Il Regno website, he wrote that "what's needed today for Africa to rise up is a humanity able to assume its own destiny and respond to so many generous development projects on the continent."
They do tend to talk a lot about "development" as if they were spokesmen for Worldbank and UNESCO. Would that they were at least equally and publicly concerned about souls.
