The Biafran War Was Fought To Keep Nigeria As One – Gowon

Retired General Yakubu Gowon, who is a Former Head of State, ruled during the deadly Nigerian Civil War, which caused the death of almost 3 million people, most which were civilians.

The Biafran War Was Fought To Keep Nigeria As One - Gowon

During his rule, the Nigerian government was able to prevent the Biafran secession during the Civil War, which start in 1967 and ended in 1970.

The ex-military ruler said his administration had no regret going into the Biafra war because it was necessary to keep Nigeria one.

Gowon said this on Wednesday, in a special interview he granted the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, as part of activities marking the 50th anniversary of the end of the Nigerian civil war.

He said;

The war was fought to keep Nigeria one, not for other reasons as is being speculated in some quarters. It is because of this that we don’t have regrets about fighting the war.

We fought because of our love for our country. That is why at the end of the war, we declared that there was no victor, no vanquished.

The retired general, however, cautioned those he said were trying to turn back the hands of time with their conduct and utterances to desist from doing so in order to prevent a descent into chaos.
