Biafra War: Your Comment Disgraceful, Shows Lack Of Wisdom – Sam Amadi To Gowon




The director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thought, Dr. Sam Amadi, has described the comment of former Military Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, regarding the Biafra war as disgraceful.

Amadi said the Biafra war prosecuted by Gown was needless and showed lack of wisdom, DDM News Reports.

Posting on social media, the sociopolitical analyst accused Gowon of seeing the civil war as an achievement.

He wrote: “What’s bad about Gowon’s comment is that he thinks prosecuting a civil war an achievement. It is actually a monumental failure that a nation went to war under his watch. To be proud of that failure is disgraceful.

“The war was needless, infantile and evidence of lack of wisdom.”

Gowon, who ruled Nigeria between 1966 and 1975, had recalled how they said he could not prosecute the civil war because he was slow.

Addressing journalists after a meeting with President Bola Tinubu, Gowon said, “If I can remember, when I was fighting the war I was told I was too slow and that probably Nigeria cannot make it and that we should now seek for discussion. Well, did we do it or not? They probably do not know the problem underground so that is where we are.”

    Gowon is apparently going senile. He was incoherent in his futile effort to convince the interviewer.
    Using the civil war as an example in his analysis shows that he is less than honest.
    Remember that Gowon is an indicted coup plotter. He has not even answered to the fraud charges against him. It is only in Nigeria that Gowon can use the subterfuge of prayer to avoid giving account of his atrocities against the country.
