Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon has stated that despite the current agitations in the land, Nigeria won’t break up, because the youths will not allow anything or anyone threaten the unity of the country. Speaking at the 50th-anniversary programme of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, the retired General said: “I am not scared for the unity of the nation. I have confidence in Nigeria and the youths of this country that they will make sure that they take over and do better than we left for them. I have no fear that these rantings and so on….. I have confidence that the youths of this nation will keep Nigeria going and make it greater. Diversity is our source of unity and strength.”
If only these agitators will listen to a wise man, who actually fought in the war.
