Channel Your Energy Towards Developing Nigeria – General Gowon To Nigerian Youths

General Yakubu Gowon speaking in Bayelsa  while commissioning the newly built Bayelsa State Governor’s office, applauded Governor Seriake Dickson for his efforts in the state and expressed gratitude for being given a rousing welcome and a chieftaincy title.

He said: “from what I have heard, you did not abandon anything that your predecessors had done. But you built and improved on them and this is really to your credit. “I am sure that there will be no abandoned project. “I was not expecting the kind of welcome I received here today. “I have never been welcomed like this in all the traditional communities I have been to.

“I was delighted to create this state 57 years ago. At that time, the political situation was very difficult. “There was fears of the country breaking up, fears of domination of the minority and the question was, what were we going to do in order to remove this fear causing problems in Nigeria?”

He also urged youths calling for the break-up of Nigeria to channel their energy into making the country better.

Gowon urged them to listen to their elders while also advising the elders to also carry the youths along in national development.
