Gowon rebukes Nigerians over quit notice

Former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon has urged citizens to stop all acts that threaten the unity of the country.

Gowon made the call on Sunday in Sokoto, at a one-day National Prayer Rally organised by Nigeria Prays.

Speaking against the backdrop of quit notices issued by certain groups around the country, he called on Nigerians to value each other’s lives and “never raise their hands against one another”.

Gowon said: “We should value the lives of our fellow human beings that God has created for a purpose. May we never take lives with impunity.

“We are offering fervent prayers that Nigerians will never raise their hands against one another.

“They should love one another irrespective of religious, ideological, political and ethnic affinities.

“Prayer can solve problems better and faster than soldiers, as well as physical weapons of war.

“I have no doubt in my heart that God will honour our collective prayer and intercession for our dear nation, as well as heal our nation of insecurity.

“May we experience abundance of God’s mercy and showers of blessings over our lives and our nation as we raise our voices in heartfelt prayers today in Sokoto,” he said.
