The former President of Nigeria, described the duo of GOWON and JANG as patriots, who are making untiring efforts towards the good and unity of the Nigeria.
He said after exiting public office, GOWON and JANG have continued to work towards Nigeria’s unity and are leaving enduring legacies for Nigerians, which pleaded Nigerians should emulate.
“General GOWON used the gun as a Military Head of State to fight and keep Nigeria united and later dropped the gun and picked a great and mighty weapon, which is the Bible, to bring Nigeria together through the “Nigeria Praise”.
“JANG is doing the same thing in a very special way. JONAH JANG is really following the footsteps of General GOWON; he was a firm soldier, who used the gun to keep Nigeria together having served as Military Governor, civilian governor and has been in the Senate. Now, he is using the Bible as weapon for the unity of Nigeria.”
