YORUBA SUMMIT GROUP DEMANDS BUHARI SET UP A TECHNICAL CONSTITUTION DRAFTING COMMITTEE
BUHARI ADMINISTRATION, SET UP A TECHNICAL CONSTITUTION DRAFTING COMMITTEE (TCDC) NOW – Demands Yoruba Summit Group (YSG)
The Yoruba Summit Group (YSG), under the control of the acclaimed Yoruba Leader, Prof. Banji Akintoye, had its regular meeting on September 10, 2020 to review some crucial matters of unique interest to the Southwest. These included the Waterways Bill pending in the National Assembly, recurrent quest to amend the 1999 Constitution, the impending landmark 60th Independence Anniversary date of October 1, 2020, and the mechanism of Yoruba involvement in the polity of Nigeria as it is unraveling politically and economically under the watch of the Buhari administration.
The Yoruba nationalist group reaffirmed that the solution to Nigeria’s conundrum must start with the jettisoning of the imposed fraudulent 1999 Constitution, which has enabled an ethnic minority, the Fulani, to assert its will over the majority population inhabiting the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria. YSG reiterated that the scheduled 2023 general elections cannot deal with the issue at hand and thus must be discountenanced as a plausible way forward. The National Assembly, which was configured through military fiat to preferentially favor the Far North, must be excluded from tinkering with the “constitutional amendment” being touted by some Northern apologists.
The YSG instead calls on the Buhari administration to set up the Technical Constitution Drafting Committee (TCDC) with a mandate to work out, within three months, a new framework into a document as a basis for all ethnic nationalities to live in peace as collaborative neighbors, using existing documents in the public domain. The outcome of the TCDC effort is to be the subject of a National Referendum in order to secure the consent of the Nigerian people. The National Assembly is to adopt the Doctrine of Necessity once again, by making the Law with provisions on processes to guide the historic transition from the 1999 Constitution until the enactment of a new Constitutional order is attained. The new order shall be the basis of any further elections in Nigeria.
YSG hereby notify the United Nations, European Union and all foreign countries, including the UK, US, China, Russia etc and multinational lending institutions, to cease and desist forthwith from any further disbursement on loans and even grants, as such subsequent disbursements shall not be countenanced as part of assets and liabilities of the Nigeria country that would, most sooner than later, be reconfigured or dissolved.
To demonstrate the frustration of a failed Nigerian state, after 60 years of so-called Independence, the ethnic Yoruba and rest of Nigerians are asked to wear a red armband on October 1, 2020. This band should be worn until victory.
The YSG statement is the harbinger of the imminent Constitutional Force Majeure to bring down the imposed fraudulent 1999 Constitution being staged under the aegis of the Movement of New Nigeria alliance partners in the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria.

It Seems the marriage is about to expire. Nothern senators has made it clear that no single letter would be allow to remove from 1999 constitution.
I hope this matter resolve before the agitation gain momentum ... I just checked the name of the people behind Yoruba movement and I noted that they are all intellectual and well connected.
Southwest is face of Nigeria if anything like revolution start in the southwest it will draw the attention of the world leaders. The people that believe they own Nigeria should gather themselves and act fast now.

There's a video going around on Twitter and WhatsApp showing a group of Yoruba in London walking to 10 Downing Street, singing: No One Nigeria, Nigeria is a fraud, Oduduwa Nation!"
This is just the beginning. It will gain strength. All the South and Middle Belt are leaving this Union.
