General Yakubu Gowon Marks 80th Birthday Today -October 19, 2014

"General Yakubu "Jack" Dan-Yumma Gowon (born 19 October 1934) was the head of states (Head of the Federal Military Government) of Nigeria from 1966 to 1975. He took power after one military coup d'├ętat and was overthrown in another. During his rule, the Nigerian government successfully prevented Biafran secession during the 1967–70 Nigerian Civil War.

"General Yakubu Gowon is a man of history. The history of our country, with it’s its highs and its lows, cannot be written without the pride of place this great man occupies in it. Much like the US President Abraham Lincoln who presided over a fratricidal civil war to keep the union of the United States one, and then had the historical task of leading the charge to bind his nation’s wounds, Yakubu Gowon came to national and global limelight in a time in which Nigeria’s nationhood was forged through the crucible of fire, a time of conflict and war.

With a lesser man, Nigeria’s destiny might have taken the low, atavistic road of revenge, a descent into a permanent version of Dante’s Inferno. But this fine military officer’s vision led him and his country on a different path – that of reconciliation and reconstruction after Nigeria’s three year civil war ended in 1970." Kingsley Chiedu Moghalu (ThisDay Live)

Happy 80th birthday General! Deo Volente, we shall celebrate again at Gowon @90!

Send Your Birthday Wishes To General Yakubu Gown.
