A former Head of State,Gen. Yakubu Gowon, has expressed fear that Nigerian may disintegrate, asks Nigerians to pray for Buhari.
Gowon said some people with sinister motives do not want peace to reign in the country.
Gowon was represented by the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume, at a thanksgiving service and reception organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in honour of the newly appointed Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, in Abuja on Thursay.
HE SAID: “I know President Muhammadu Buhari is doing a lot, but the challenges are still there. There are people with sinister motives, who wouldn’t want peace. I appeal to CAN to continue to pray, not only for Yakubu Pam, but for the President and all of us and for your dear country, so that Nigeria will not go asunder.
“I once made a comment that this country is too big and versed with a population of over 200 million.
”A scholar said that we are structurally complex and diverse. If our territorial integrity is undermined, Somalia will be a child’s play. We don’t have to toil with our unity…. We need to reestablish peace, push forward our agenda for our territorial integrity. We need to support the President. We can take our country to the next level because we have the human and material resources to do so.”
