Ill Nigerian president meets Christian leaders

Ill Nigerian president meets Christian leaders

A pastor says Nigeria's ill and long unseen president has met with Christian leaders.
Pastor Emmanuel Kure told The Associated Press that he and three other Christian leaders met Monday night with Umaru Yar'Adua at the nation's presidential palace. Kure declined to say much about the visit with the Muslim leader, though he did say Yar'Adua was "able to grunt out an amen" at the end of prayers.
Yar'Adua hasn't been seen publicly since late November, when he left Nigeria for treatment in a Saudi Arabian hospital. The president's chief physician said Yar'Adua suffered from acute pericarditis, an inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart.
Monday's visit comes after senior Islamic clerics met with Yar'Adua last week.
