According to him, the class of elites from various tribes in Adamawa and other states should not allow primordial sentiments of any sort to divide them, but everyone should be given the opportunity to contribute their quota.

Professor Gana called for the establishment of a documentation and research centre for proper records of the Gongola people who have a rich cultural heritage.

The former minister noted that there were a lot of religious upheavals in 1804 that affected the unity of the Gongola ethnic nationalities, but their strength, value and cultural heritage did not reduce.

The National President of the Forum Engineer Markus Gundiri explains that the celebration is designed to foster unity and economic development of the indigenous groups within the Gongola enclave and to reenact the long-standing unity and togetherness which the people share as a common heritage.

“Our goal is to revisit, reawaken and reassert ourselves as people with independent minds and ability to forge their economy and identities”. He said

He added that the forum has come to terms with the current economic realities of the nation to work ways to navigate through it to escape from its excruciating pains while calling for unity among members and Nigerians at large.
