Gowon urges Buhari not to give up on Nigeria

Former Military Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, has encouraged President Muhammadu Buhari not to give up on building Nigeria.

Shortly after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Tuesday, Gowon told State House correspondents that even though a lot of problems spring up daily for the President to grapple with, it is important that the President continues in his goal towards a stronger Nigeria.

“I am also here to encourage him (the President) ‎to continue to do his work to the best of his ability, dealing with all the problems.

“Day in day out, you read in the press of all sorts of things happening in the country.

“God will give him (the President) continued strength and energy to deal with the problems of the country for the good of Nigerians.

“I am delighted to be here, to welcome him back and to see him in reasonably good health and able to do whatever he is able to do.”
