  • Description

    SENEGAL'S LEADING OFFICIALS WERE AT THE NIGERIAN EMBASSY YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) FOR A RECEPTION TO CELEBRATE THE NINTH ANNIVERSARY OF NIGERIA'S INDEPENDENCE.

    THE PARTY AT DAKAR WAS ONE OF MANY HELD ALL OVER AFRICA YESTERDAY TO MARK NIGERIA'S INDEPENDENCE DAY. APART FROM LEADING PUBLIC FIGURES, THE GUESTS-LIST INCLUDED MANY AMBASSADORS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES IN AND OUT OF AFRICA.

    NIGERIA ITSELF MARKED THE BIG DAY WITH PRAYERS FOR PEACE, BUT WITH A WARNING FROM THE FEDERAL LEADER, MAJOR GENERAL YAKUBU GOWON, THAT TIME WAS RUNNING OUT FOR THE BIAFRANS TO END THEIR SECESSION.

    IN A NATIONWIDE BROADCAST, GENERAL GOWON REITERATED WHAT HE SAID AT THE RECENT AFRICAN SUMMIT MEETING IN ADDIS ABABA...THAT UNLESS BIAFRA SURRENDED, FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FORCES WOULD HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CONTINUE THE WAR TO ITS INEVITABLE CONCLUSION.
