We’re working quietly to make Nigeria peaceful – Gowon

A former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, on Saturday urged Nigerians to embark on self-examination on how he or she had contributed to peaceful coexistence in the country.

He said efforts were on to quietly resolve the problems facing the country.

Gowon, who spoke at  Osun State Government House, Osogbo, shortly after holding a private meeting  with Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, explained that he was in Osun to “pray for peace and act for peace.”

The former Head of State, who said he was in the state for  Nigeria Prays, South-West zone, emphasised the need for the nation to  pray. He also advised Nigerians not to allow themselves to be pushed into hating one another.

While welcoming the former Head of State, Oyetola described him as a detribalised Nigerian.

He called on other leaders to emulate Gowon and always work towards a united and peaceful Nigeria.
