VIDEO: What Gowon said about Nigeria’s unity, Igbos, Ojukwu | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


A former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, had said after the Civil War that Nigeria never took Igbos as enemies.

He said it was Ojukwu that made Igbos believe they were not wanted in Nigeria and abandoned them to suffer during the war.

In the video recently uploaded on social media, Gowon also gave reasons why he stopped foreign relief supplies to Biafrans after the war.

He also said that Igbos would be treated as equal citizens in Nigeria depending on their willingness and performance.

The agitation and demand by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and other Igbo groups for secession from Nigeria have since continued to generate tension in the country.

But while speaking on the fight to maintain Nigeria’s unity, Gowon had given reasons why Nigeria must remain united.

  1. To remain united is a two way thing. parties involve must be committed in the unity, but where one party feels cheated and is no longer interested in this union, please let them go. It is not by force. Please lets conduct referendum.

  2. when you make such statements as Nigeria MUST remain united or that our unity is UNEGOTIABLE.....that is exactly why Nigeria would certainly disintegrate or there would never be peace, that's exactly the cause of the agitations........ it simply still interprets the marginalization they claim, it implies their aspirations doesn't count in the country, it means they are not equal with other tribes.. The agitation would continue... bullet would never stop them as you already know.

  3. When the lord took away the captivity of Zion it was like a dream..Except the lord keep the city the watchman waked up but invain.

  4. One Nigeria for your pocket of a Gowon, please God and Ojukwu is still warning you ,Let my people Gooooooôoooooo!!!

  5. Still confused as when he was in power
