Gowon, Ajimobi Call Attitudinal Change for Nigeria


Former military head of state, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd) has said Nigeria should be restructured but not along ethnic or regional divides but as one indivisible entity.

Gowon who is also the convener of Nigeria Prays told Channels Television after the inter denominational prayer session, that he would not support any call to break away nor will he subscribe to any state or region given prominence at the detriment of other states or the country.

The elder statesmen added that the programme, Nigeria prays, is aimed at promoting unity and peace through fervent and result oriented prayers for the transformation of the nation and promotion of patriotism, transparency and responsible governance.

In his remarks Governor Abiola Ajimobi who lauded the initiative urged Nigerians to walk the talk by demonstrating commitment and integrity in all they do.

He further noted that Nigeria is a praying nation but it was time the people start acting in tandem with prayers if change is desirous.

Gowon expressed confidence that all the problems facing Nigeria could be surmounted with prayers and hard work, adding that the country must be restructured but only as one indivisible entity where all states are strengthened to perform optimally.

All the ethnic groups in the country were represented at the event and prayers were offered for President Muhammadu Buhari and all political office holders in the country.
