Gowon Enjoins Christendom To Shun Denomination, Embrace Unity

Former Head of State, retired Gen. Yakubu
Gowon, has advised Christians in Nigeria to shun
denomination and embrace unity. Gowon gave this advice during the Kaltungo
Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) Gospel
centenary in Kaltungo, Gombe State on Saturday. General Yakubu Gowon (Rtd) Gowon, who was also the chairman of the
occasion, said the focus of Christians should be
Christ and salvation as against denomination. According to him, denomination will not take
anybody anywhere. He urged the Christian faithful to continue with
evangelism from where the missionaries that
brought the gospel stopped. In his goodwill message, Alhaji Sale Muhammad,
the paramount ruler of Kaltungo, emphasised the
need for Nigerians to unite against insecurity and
insurgency, irrespective of religious affiliations. He
expressed joy to see the fourth generation of early
missionaries of Sudan Interior Mission (SIM), now ECWA. He commended Gowon for accepting to chair the
occasion. Mr Charles Iliya, Acting Governor, Gombe state,
urged Christians to intensify their prayers for the
unity of the country. Rev. Yusuf Turaki, the speaker, charged the
Christian faithful in the country to rise and bring
back the unity that existed among Christians and
other religious groups.
