One thing about him ,he is always a good pretender , because he acts as if he did know all what is going on in Nigeria.Nevertheless, he was a soldier but neither a political statesman.when he was in saddle of power.he did not pretend to be wiser than his colleagues unlike his counterpart Baba ojukwu.
On the question of Nigeria unity ,omo forget ,l agree with Gowon Jo.grin grin.
If only this man had left Ojukwu and agreed to the Aburi accord, Nigeria and Biafra would have two of the greatest countries in Africa right now but no, “let’s unite”, and 50 something years later, look at where we are.
Gone are those days when the Brits and the world at large respect us . these days Nigeria had become a massive laughing stock – a joke of a country, nobody takes us seriously again cry
