Former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, has said that the conduct of Nigeria’s March 28 presidential election, which was won by Muhammadu Buhari, has shamed prophets of doom who predicted Nigeria’s downfall.

Gowon stated this on Monday, April 6, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos, Plateau State.

“No one will ever repeat that wild and arrogant prediction that Nigeria will go under; those doomsayers have been shamed and Nigeria will grow from strength to strength,” he said.

“The nation has always had the mechanism to tackle its concerns and this election and its peaceful outcome have proved that a united and focused nation would always survive and move toward greatness,” he added.

Gowon paid a congratulatory visit to Buhari in his Abuja home after the latter was named President-elect on Tuesday, March 31.
