Nigeria’s former head of state, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), has stated that the country’s future is in danger as Nigeria youths were not guided on the path of rectitude.
Gowon made the comment at the 25th Anniversary of the Scripture Union (NIG), Abuja, and the presentation of a Book titled: ‘Acts Of The Pilgrims’.
“May I challenge every participant and invited guest here that today’s celebration calls us into deep reflection of our lost Godly values and virtues, particularly, as christian men and women, and seek to recover them.
“This occasion must therefore compel us to reflect deeply on the state of the nation, particularly the issues relating to moral decadence, sexual perversion, restiveness, precarious security challenges and corruption.
“We must rise up to deal with various issues of moral burdens in our educational institutions and labour to arrest the tide through massive prayer campaign and action.
“If we do not arise to bring our youths into the path of rectitude, then their future will appear gloomy, and, therefore, we cannot build a virile nation of trust, integrity and good governance.”
Speaking on the book launched, the former head of state described the book as an appetizer that will make the people to seek for more through God.
“This will deeply and further inspire us to remain steadfast and resolute in our walk with God on the ancient path with Him,” he said.
