What Gowon did for Nigeria – Goodluck Jonathan



Ex-President Dr Goodluck Jonathan has described former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon as a forthright statesman who has continued to work for the unity of the country.

Jonathan stated this in a goodwill message issued by his aide, Ikechukwu Eze felicitating with Gowon who turns 84, today, Friday.
He also extolled Gowon as a leader whose worldview has been liberal, guided by those ideals that promote Nigeria’s development.

The statement read in part: “I have no doubt that you will continue to serve as a source of inspiration and a testimony to the fact that honesty, selflessness, and love for one another, are tenets we all need to imbibe to build the nation of our dream.”
Also, Jonathan congratulated the Governor of Abia State Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu who turned 54 years on Thursday.
In a goodwill message to Dr. Ikpeazu, Jonathan prayed for God’s guidance and protection as the Governor strives to improve the lives of his people.

He added : “On this memorable day, I pray that God will endow you with more grace to continue to make impactful contributions to Abia State and to our dear country Nigeria.”
