A former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, has called on all Nigerians to continue to work and pray for the unity of the country.

The former Head of State said it was unfortunate that the country was facing a series of crises in some parts, pointing out that the unity and progress of the country remained a collective responsibility.

He stated this while speaking with journalists in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Wednesday.

Gowon, who is a patron of the Bible Society of Nigeria, led members of the association to pay a courtesy visit to the Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, expressing optimism that the situation of the country would change for the better.

He said, “It is unfortunate that the country is facing many crises nowadays, killings in the North, militancy in the South and many crises everywhere, but I believe with prayers, it shall be well with the country.

“I read in one of the newspapers that the name of Nigeria is no more on the list of countries in economic recession; that shows that things are getting better. So, we should not stop praying for the country.”

The National President of the BSN, Dr Aaron Nuhu, solicited the support of the Ondo State Government for the association, saying the association had translated the bible into 24 Nigerian languages and was still making efforts to translate it to more Nigerian languages.

In his response, Akeredolu lauded the former Head of State for ensuring the unity of the country since when he was a military leader even as he promised to support the association.
