Gowon Dropped Gun For Bible To Keep Nigeria One – Jonathan

0

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on Nigerians to emulate a former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, and a former governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, who he described as patriots making untiring efforts towards the good of the country.

Jonathan stated that after exiting public office, Gowon and Jang have continued to work towards Nigeria’s unity and are leaving enduring legacies for Nigerians.

Jonathan spoke in Jos during the official dedication of the 10 Commandments Prayer Altar built by Jang at Doi, Jos South LGA, Plateau State.

The ex-President was the chairman on the occasion.

Jonathan said, “Gen. Gowon used the gun as military Head of State to fight and keep Nigeria united and later dropped the gun and picked a great and mighty weapon, which is the Bible, to bring Nigeria together through the Nigeria Praise and Jang is doing the same thing in a very special way.

“Jonah Jang is really following the footsteps of General Gowon; he was a firm soldier who used the gun to keep Nigeria together having served as military governor, civilian governor and has been in the Senate now, using the Bible to as weapon for the unity of Nigeria.”

One of UK’s largest men is celebrating after shedding over 190KG of weight.

Harvey Olikh used to weigh over 317KG but has now lost over half his weight after a health scare.

He was taken to hospital in November 2019. Doctors were amazed he wasn’t bedbound and one doctor warned him: “If you live like this, within two years you will be dead.”

Harvey was placed in intensive care for four days after catching a cold and it finally prompted him to start shedding weight.

He has now lost over 190KG.

The 48-year-old said: “This weight loss is a gift that keeps on giving – and it’s not just for Christmas!

“It’s like I have woken up after Scrooge’s three ghosts and I’m alive.”

To lose weight, he stopped drinking but still ate thousands of calories.

He added that the suspect bought fuel and yoghurt products in the filling station and also asked the attendant to transfer the sum of N50,000, to his account.

The suspect was expected to pay cash to the POS operator which he declined and made an attempt to leave the filling station without making all the necessary payments.

The POS/filling station attendant later raised an alarm which attracted officers of the NSCDC and the man was later picked up.

He reportedly assaulted one of the NSCDC officers during the course of an investigation.

Further interrogation revealed that the suspect was a serial fraudster, who had earlier defrauded a hotel receptionist and also one supermarket attendant.

The State Commandant, Iskilu Ayinla Makinde, has called for full-scale investigations after which the suspect will be charged to court.
