Pope: Old friend on Cardinal Peter Turkson

Catholic cardinals from all over the world are gathered at the Vatican to elect the new Pope.

Cardinal Peter Turkson from Ghana is seen as one of the leading candidates from Africa.

Reverend Martin Essilfie is one of Cardinal Turkson's long-time friends - they joined St Teresa's Seminary together in the 1960s as teenagers.

Will Ross asked Fr Essilfie if it was clear back then that Peter Turkson would be dedicated to the Catholic Church for the rest of his life.
