He spoke in Abuja at the thanksgiving service and reception organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in honour of the newly appointed Executive Secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam.
Former senator, Shehu Sani, has however noted that the former Head of State's comments may have a cryptic tone. He wrote on Twitter: "Gen Gowon’s prayer is more of an encrypted message."

This has since sparked mixed reactions with some people disagreeing by asking him to decrypt whatever hidden message Gowon's statement carried.
Gowon who was represented by the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume said: “Yakubu Pam has been sufficiently prepared by God to serve his people. I can testify to the fact that who the cap fits let him wear it. This commission is crucial and sensitive as one of the agencies of government.

However, his next statement carried with it an indication that the President is not yet doing enough to counter terrorism in the country despite the massive support the people gave him during his bid for office. He said:
“You are coming into the office at a time that we have very serious security challenges. We have made a lot of efforts to solve these problems along with people of other religion. That is why virtually everybody supported you for this position. It is an opportunity for you to do even more to bring peace to our country.
He did praise the president's efforts so far, however, he also cited issues of moles within the government as well as indications that the country is long due for restructuring.
“We need peace to succeed. I know President Muhammadu Buhari is doing a lot but the challenges are still there. There are people with sinister motives, who wouldn’t want peace.
"But through prayers, I appeal to CAN to continue to pray not only for Yakubu Pam but for the president and all of us, and for your dear country, so that Nigeria will not go asunder. I once made a comment that this country is too big and versed with a population of over 200 million.
However, the most urgent underlying message came in his next statement where he referenced the war in Somalia. He expressed his fears over Nigeria becoming another Somalia whose civil war has gone on for over 20 years now. He said:
“A scholar said that we are structurally complex and pluraly diverted. If our territorial integrity is undermined, Somalia will be a child’s play. We don’t have to toil with our unity.
"You are in a very good position working closely with CAN and people of other faith so that together we can reestablish peace, push forward our agenda for our territorial integrity, push forward for our oneness so that together supporting the president, we can take our country to the next level, we have the human and material resources to take Nigeria to the next level”.
