I Created States To Avoid Biafra Break Away, Says Yakubu Gowon |RN

Former military Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon has revealed why he created states in the country during his regime.
He said the creation of states became imperative following fears by minority ethnic groups in the country that the majority ones would swallow them up.
He added also that it was done to douse the fears of the country’s breakup.
General Gowon said this in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital where he was accompanied by his wife, Victoria to commission the newly built Bayelsa State Government House.
General Gowon said, “I was delighted to create those states…years ago. At that time, the political situation was very difficult.
“There were fears of the country breaking up, fears of domination of the minority and the question was, what were we going to do in order to remove this fear causing problems in Nigeria?
“Fears of being dominated by majority ethnic groups? The creation of states was to solve these fears.” (Daily Post)

    Gowon. Your problem is lack of knowledge and low self- esteem. You never know that the Fulani Caliphate who were using you to foist the unworkable UNION, Nigeria on the people had the Islamisation agenda in view. They are now consuming your people in Jos,Plateau. By now am sure you now that Ojukwu is 10 times better, visionary and knowledgeable than you. Has your fears of creating State gone??? You better join the Biafrans in their struggle for independence to save your own people. Obasanjo and TY DANJUMA have revealed the caliphate agenda and vindicated our HERO, Ojukwu.
