AFCON: Goodluck Jonathan Reacts As Super Eagles Qualifies For Knockout Stages

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the country is united and devoid of rancour.

Jonathan appealed to his successor and other leaders in the country to ensure no tribe or ethnicity in the country is favoured more than the other.

The former Bayelsa governor advised Nigerian leaders to put the interest of every section of the country first and ensure that the country is devoid of agitation, disunity and disenchantment.

He made this known on Saturday when he led members of the 1981 set of the University of Port Harcourt Alumni Association on a visit to King Amalate Johnnie Turner of Opume kingdom in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

The former president stated that Nigeria is blessed with both human and natural endowments which can only be enjoyed in a peaceful atmosphere.

He said: “Leaders should focus more on uniting Nigerians, if one society or group of people or tribe is more valued than the other, then there is bound to be disunity and disenchantment from those who feel not being accorded their rightful respect and value.”

Speaking on the reunion programme, Jonathan said: “The reunion programme is part of activities of the alumni aimed at fostering bond among old classmates and a platform to deliberate on issues affecting their alma mater and give back to the school and society in general.”

Meanwhile, the Department of State Service, DSS, has raised an alarm over a planned attack by Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists on Ogun border communities and other border communities across Nigeria.

Naija News reports that this was made known in a letter dated November 25, 2021, addressed to the Customs Area Controller, Nigeria Customs Service, Ogun Area Command, Abeokuta.

The letter was titled, ‘Plans by Insurgents To Launch Attacks On Military Bases In Various Border Communities,’ and signed by the State Director of Security, Ogun State Command, M.B. Abdullahi.

According to the DSS, the Nigeria Customs Service must be on high alert over the impending attack.
