Get your facts right, Gowon isn't a war criminal. Blame, col. Adekunle. Muritala. Shuwa. Obasanjo. Buhari. Ibb. Yar'adua and Ojukwu and Achuzia and others for the massacre of your people.

He's number three in the list of war criminals

PRESIDENT BUHARI SALUTES GENERAL GOWON AT 86, DESCRIBES HIM AS A GALLANT PATRIOT

President Muhammadu Buhari has described former military Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon as "a gallant patriot whose commitment to national unity is beyond comparison in the annals of our chequered history."

In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday to mark the occasion of his 86th birthday anniversary, President Buhari remarked that "the role General Yakubu Gowon played in our political history and infrastructure development is etched in stone and cannot be rewritten."
Buhari said "as young military officers, many of us regarded General Gowon as our role model because of his patriotism, commitment to unity and his humility."

According to the President, "the Nigerian civil war brought out the most brilliant qualities of General Gowon as a visionary leader who put the interest of Nigeria before his own personal interest."
He noted that "the former Head of State led a very impressive national reconciliation effort at the end of the civil war in order to heal the bitter emotional and psychological wounds of the fratricidal conflict."

President Buhari added that "General Gowon is one of the fairest leaders I have ever known who has inspired so many future leaders."

"Even in the context of Africa, many leaders in the continent draw inspiration from his adroit handling of the outcome of the civil war through his policy of ‘No Victor, No Vanquished,’" he further stated.

"As he marks 86 years of age, Nigerians cannot forget General Gowon's immeasurable contributions to the unity and development of Nigeria. May God continue to bless him with more good health and the needed strength in understanding his ongoing spiritual engagements and service to humanity," the President prayed.

Gowon,as far as history says,is a prodigal son.He wasted the glut of resources at his disposal.He refused to listen to Awolowo's advice on investment in education and agriculture.Unlike Pharoah who listened to Joseph, Gowon did his own thing; played Big Brother to those who would latterly not appreciate it.So,in this sense ,he's also one of the accidents of history who stumbled on power.

Gowon and Buhari- two men who can hardly see beyond the nose.

The political system Gowon fought with loss of about 2.5 million people, to prevail is what Buhari is still fighting for to prevail, but more than 80% of Nigeria’s population are kicking against the political system today.
