Nigeria’s peace and unity not negotiable insists Gowon

War time General and former Nigerian Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd), has asserted that peace and unity of the country was not negotiable.


Speaking on Tuesday  in Abuja at an award ceremony organised by the National Orientation Agency, NOA, the former Head of State urged Nigerians to work towards achieving peace in the country.

Represented by his brother, Dauda Gowon, the former Head of State said that his passion and commitment for Nigeria to remain as one entity was the main reason for accepting to chair the occasion.

“This award ceremony is timely and relevant, considering the serious political, ethnic and religious challenges being experienced in our nation Nigeria today.

“We have to overcome these problems in order for us to move forward.

“I want to reiterate in strongest term, that the peace and unity of Nigeria is not negotiable.

“I and the other awardees are saying that all of us are called to continue to work at achieving the much desired peace and unity that we crave daily for our country.

“I am strongly of the belief that for the future of our nation to be assured, we must strive to build legacies of peace and unity.”

Gowon had recently described prayer as a formidable weapon that can solve the nation’s many challenges better and faster.

  1. neva ,bt with God it is ,am sure of that


  2. just wait and see and do sometn quick to it mr man


  3. Gowon still continues to live in the past even after all the clear signs that one Nigeria has failed
    He led his people to join forces with the Hausa/Fulani oligarchs to prevent the realisation of Biafra
    The same Hausa/Fulani have unleashed so much devastationof his middle belt kinsmen, yet Gowon is fantasising about one obviously unworkable Nigeria
