How Ironsi, Gowon, Obasanjo Laid Foundation For Insecurity — Sultan by jarawa: 8:38am On Mar 12, 2021
The chairman of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Thursday, said the regimes of Generals Aguiyi Ironsi, Yakubu Gowon and Olusegun Obasanjo relegated the traditional institution to the background with no constitutional role.

Speaking in Abuja at a meeting with the Steering Committee of the Senate Constitution Review Committee, he said Ironsi’s 1966 Unitary Government Decree, Gowon’s 1967 and Obasanjo’s 1976 Local Government Reforms Decrees stripped traditional rulers of their powers and gave same to the local government councils.

The sultan, represented by the Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, said the decrees resulted in insecurity and corruption currently facing the country.

He said before the 1976 local government reforms, Nigeria was progressive, peaceful, decent and full of beautiful traditions and cultures.

He called on the National Assembly to restore their constitutional powers.

He said the colonialists needed the traditional rulers to consolidate their indirect rule; the politicians, to stabilize their governments and the military, to gain acceptance.

“All the respective levels of governments needed them to maintain peace and security as traditional rulers were always at hand to douse conflict that the police, the military and the government officials could not contain.

“Currently, traditional rulers do not have the constitutional or other legal backings to perform effectively as they’re not even mentioned in the 1999 constitution. This is a great departure from all earlier constitutions that recognized them, and even gave them some functions to perform.

“Indeed, all the Nigerian earlier constitutions gave the chairmen of the State Councils of Chiefs seats in the National Council of State alongside former Presidents and Chief Justices.”

He asked that the constitution be amended to give the traditional institution a unique constitutional recognition, noting that no community or nation would thrive successfully without due consideration of its historical evolution, customs, values and beliefs.

“The constitutional provision should provide for states to enact state laws that cater for specific peculiar matters relating to traditional rulers in the respective states. In addition, the chairmen of the State Councils of Chiefs should be recognised by the constitution as members of the Council of State as it has been in all the Nigerian constitutions, except the 1999 one,” he added.

Responding, Deputy Senate President and chairman of the Senate Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution, Ovie Omo-Agege, told the traditional rulers that their requests were “not too much to ask”, urging them to lobby lawmakers at the National and State Assemblies, who are their subjects, for their requests to sail through.

cool




Ipobians are quick to blame Lord Fredrick Lugard but very silent on blaming Nnamdi Azikwe, Nzeogwu, Aguyi Ironsi and Professor Ben Nwabueze, Ojuckwu that killed Nigerian leaders and turned our country to a Shithole because of greed

Fulanis and Ipobians are similar in nature just that Ipobians haven't started killing people

*Who refused to include secession clause in Nigeria's independence constitution?! Ibo man Nnamdi Azikwe --- who is now attacking and insulting everyone ?! Nnamdi Kanu another Ibo man

*Who commited the first coup and killed democratically elected leaders of other tribes?! Ibos; Nzeogwu, who is now wailing Ipobians

*Who killed the first ever Seccesionist freedom fighter Issac Adaka Boro of Niger Delta?! Ibo man named Ojuckwu, who later waged a war for seccession, Ibo man Ojuckwu

*Who changed Nigerian constitutional regional government to Unitary system?! Ibos who is now wailing more?! Ibos

Ironsi didn't know his left from his right. That's the fact.. But you eternal revisionists should start to free that man from all these unsavory attempts to blame him for all your mistakes. He's blamed for the Jan 66 coup, yet he alone crushed that coup! Without him, the coup has already succeeded.. You blame him for not killing the coup plotters, yet till he died, all the arrested coup plotters were in detention, including the likes of Nzeogwu who willingly surrendered to Ironsi to avoid a confrontation.

There was even no law prescribing death penalty for coup plotting then! Obasanjo made that decree post 1976 after surviving Dimka...You blame him for the unitary decree, yet dude never lived to implement it. He just SUGGESTED that and was going round the country trying to explain it when he was murdered gruesomely..You killed him for the same idea. How can someone be the cause of your failure for just muting an idea for which you killed him before it even came to fruition?? Half a century later, you are all here, still blaming him for that!! What does that make you look like?

I laugh these people who talk about Zik, Nzeogwu and Ironsi. The last time these three men were in the corridors of power was in 1966, 55 years ago!

The people who say that these three men caused all the problems are the same people who have been running Nigeria for the last 55 years and they ended up doing far worse than the three men.

I dont know how these people reason

It's unbelievable! You killed a man in the most gruesome way possible for trying to push through an idea.. You eliminated ALL his loyalists from power! You took TOTAL control of the reigns of governance thereafter, you have the army, the police, the airforce, the navy, the custom, NNPC, CBN.., name it! For over HALF A CENTURY!!
Yet, you are blaming the same poor man you killed for your woes 6 decades later! You even say so with all kinds of anger and frustration! With all sorts of convictions!!
Are you sure you are normal?

Let's even accept the sultan position verbatim.

I thought the main reason for voting Buhari was that he would fix security within six months.

It is over 60 months and insecurity is at a level never seen before.

I am not saying the presidency and his security chief aren't doing something but their actions over the past years portrays nothing but ineffectiveness.

So the Sultan should leave the past and channel is spech towards the current leader.

This is arrant nonsense. The major cause of insecurity in Nigeria is quota system. The moment Nigeria allowed itself to be run by bunch of idiots, every section of society becomes afflicted with idiocy.

That Satan of Sokoto is the chairman of traditional council of Nigeria, a minority and fulani terrorist for that matter makes me pukes. The more reason why Nigeria must Disintegrate.

We can't be joined with fulani savages, and at the same time wonder why Nigeria is under invasion by terrorist murderers seeking to implement the Usman Danfodio template on Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria.

Satan of Sokoto is the leading guru of Taqiya practitioners in core north. He's just following the example set by the Abubakar Shekau of 1804, Usman Danfodio.
