Only prayer can save Nigeria from break up — Gowon

"If our territorial integrity is undermined, Somalia will be a child’ s play. We don’ t have to toy with our unity.

Gen. Yakubu Gowon 
A former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd), has said that Somalia will be better than Nigeria because there are some people who never want peace to reign in the country.

He said that only prayer can save the country from disintegration.

Gowon spoke at a thanksgiving service and reception in honour of the Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, Rev. Yakubu Pam, at the National Christian Centre, Abuja.

Represented at the event by a former governor of Benue State and Minister of Special Duties and Inter - Governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume, the former head of state also warned against undermining the territorial integrity of Nigeria.

Gowon said, “There are people with sinister motives who wouldn’t want peace , but through prayers we will overcome so that Nigeria will not go asunder. This country is too big and too versed , with a population of 200 million people. A scholar said that we are structurally complex and plurally diverse.

“If our territorial integrity is undermined, Somalia will be a child’ s play. We don’ t have to toy with our unity. You are in a very good position working closely with CAN and people of other faith, so that together, we can re- establish peace, push forward our agenda for our territorial integrity, push forward for our oneness so that together, supporting the President, we can take our country to the next level.”

During the event, the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo - Agege, said Pam should use his position and relationship with the Christian Association of Nigeria “to sustain and improve intra - religious and inter- religious harmony among Nigerians for which you are well known.”
