Middle Belt, Southern Leaders Give FG 90 Days To Repeal 1999 Constitution by valentineuwakwe(m): 10:32am On Dec 19, 2020
Prominent leaders from various ethnic groups from the South -West , South -East, South- South and the Middle Belt have described the 1999 Constitution as a fraud put together to perpetually subjugate other nationalities under the control of the Fulani.
The aggrieved leaders gave the Federal Government a 90 -day ultimatum to constitute a committee on Sovereign National Conference to decide on the repeal of the 1999 Constitution or to dissolve Nigeria’ s amalgamation of 1914.
According to a statement on Friday, the Middle Belt and southern leaders made the resolution at a meeting in Lagos .
The leaders, who spoke on the platform of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self -Determination, said the 1999 Constitution was responsible for the worsening insecurity and poverty in the land.
Some of the leaders who signed the communiqué are former Plateau State Governor , Jonah Jang; Prof. Yusufu Turaki ; a prominent historian, Prof. Banji Akintoye ; President-General , Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo ; Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe; Senator Aniete Okon; and Fred Agbeyegbe .
Others include Air Commodore Indongesit Nkanga ( retd. ); Ambassador Godknows Igali; Fred Agbeyegbe , Rear Admiral Geoffrey Yange and Dr Kunle Oshodi .
The leaders said all elections must be suspended so that winners would not be sworn in with the same 1999 Constitution which they described as faulty.
The communiqué read partly , “ Being confronted by the clear and present danger of extermination in the hands of our supposed compatriots in the union of Nigeria, ( we ) hereby declare a sovereignty dispute with the federation of Nigeria as represented by the Federal Government of Nigeria, on account of our repudiation and rejection of the imposed 1999 Constitution of Nigeria, whose authorship was fraudulently imputed to us.
“ Furthermore , effective from today, 18 th December , 2020, (we ) give a 90- day notice to the Government of the Federation of Nigeria, the Security Council of the United Nations, the Government of the United States of America, the European Union as well as the international community, of the intention of the peoples of the alliance territories to reconsider our continued allegiance to the disputed 1999 Constitution as well as the unitary union of death, attrition and backwardness it foists on us.
“ It is our demand that in the 90- day period of this notice , the following specific actions must be taken by the Federal Government of Nigeria to firmly set in motion an irreversible process by which the aforementioned grave constitutional grievances would be addressed :

A formal announcement by the Federal Government of Nigeria acknowledging the constitutional grievances and sovereignty dispute now declared by the peoples of the South and Middle - Belt of Nigeria.
“ A formal commitment by the Federal Government of Nigeria to the wholesale decommissioning and jettisoning of the 1999 Constitution .
“ A formal announcement by the Federal Government of Nigeria suspending further general elections under the disputed 1999 Constitution .
“ A formal initiation of a time- bound transitioning process to engender the emergence of fresh constitutional protocols by a two - stage process in which the constituent regional blocs will, at the first stage , distill and ratify their various constitutions by referendums and plebiscite and in the second stage , negotiate the terms of federating afresh as may be dictated by the outcomes of a referendum and plebiscite. ”

It was during PDP that people will wake up to make silly threats and the government will call them into negotiation and eventually settle them with slots or appointment...Which in turn made many people formed a faction and a cabal to hold a certain power within the party.....



Under APC, you no fit threaten anybody... If you talk too much, they'll look for your file and begin to count your sins for you and they'll use DSS to deal with you. If nothing is found on your file. They'll ignore the living out of you untill you fade out.


Middle belt should just close their eyes and be worshipping fulanis for the rest of their lives....

I like the way middle belt is seriously aligning with South. With time they will completely wean themselves of parasitic relationship it had endured with the North over the years.

The day middle belt leaders and youths finally wake up is the day the excesses of the core North ends..

The constitution has too many loopholes that must be looked into before it's too late. Restructure and allow those who wish to exit leave in peace.

After some break from this forum let me say compliments of the season to all.

And I am fully in support of this move by middle and southern leaders.

A stitch in time saves nine lest the faulty structure collapse on us all cos the indices are very obvious from the rising insecurity all over the country and it's a matter of WHEN and not IF.

So let's us all make hay while the sun shines.

Let me see how Fulani of less than 6m people can continue to subjugated over 200m people.

They can use criminals like Tinubu but their game is over.
Long live the Southern Nigeria and middle belt.

CLOWNS.

I thought your son the drunk ineffectual buffoon has done that already. If he did not, then it will be stupid of you to expect a Fulani man whose current lopsided Constitution favours. If it were you nko? Will you repeal it?

APC doesn't call Nigerians to negotiate, but APC calls terorists to negotiate.

Are you saying APC is a party for the progress of bandits, terrorists and faithful corrupt politicians?

I don't know who told you this nonsense. I am a southwesterner and all I care about is restructure, not a Yoruba president.

And I'm sure many yorubas think along this line.
