Opinion | For The Record: NINAS’s Important Clarifications Regarding Campaign Platforms

By Tony Nnadi
LNC Secretary General Tony Nnadi

First issued on February 13, 2021 and reissued on November 22, 2021, this article provides background information on the emergence of the Nigerian Indigenous Alliance for Self-determination (NINAS) from a clear, cohesive strategic intervention process that dates back to the date of imposition of the 1999 Constitution.

In summary, post-NADECO (1994-1998) and after countrywide deep consultations that took over 5 years, the Pro-National Conference Organizations, PRONACO, (2005-2006) was a Sovereign Conference Initiative involving all the Nationalities of Nigeria, to Restore, Upgrade and Reinforce the Aburi Consensus of 1967 as basis of the defunct Federation of Nigeria.

The Movement for New Nigeria aka MNN (2006-2017) was the implementation phase of the PRONACO Consensus excluding the Sharia Caliphate which had unilaterally Seceded from the Secular Union of Nigeria. The 2007 and 2009 Legitimacy Suits against the fraudulent 1999 Constitution were instituted by the arrowheads of MNN while mobilization continued to rally the non-Sharia rest of Nigeria (South and Middle Belt) into stepping up to take back their SOVEREIGNTY hitherto Hijacked and Confiscated by the SUZERAINTY of Unitary Nigeria erected upon the 1999 Constitution. The MNN LAGOS DECLARATION of June 30, 2011, set the parameters for that Recovery. Guided by the imperatives of the relevant International Protocols, the Regional Self-Determination Processes mandated by the said MNN LAGOS DECLARATION of June 30, 2011 culminated in the Regional Solemn Assemblies of 2015, 2017 and 2018 in Port Harcourt, Ibadan and Makurdi, covering all the Nationalities of the Alliance Territories.

It was the completion of these Regional Solemn Assemblies in 2018 and by the Mandates of those Regional Solemn Assemblies that the Processes previously being driven by the MNN ALLIANCE ORGANIZATIONS since 2006, were taken over by the Alliance of the various Regional PEOPLES’ ORGANIZATIONS, since the Self-Determination they all seek is a peoples’ right, hence the transmutation of the MNN Organizations Alliance into the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) in the last Quarter of 2018.

This was the February 13, 2021 Clarifications Note on Campaign Platforms:

“The Lower Niger Congress, (LNC) is a Platform aggregating the Self-Determination Initiatives of the pre-1966 Eastern and Midwestern Regions (South-South and South-East currently fractured into 11 States).

As outlined in the first few paragraphs of the ALADIMMA Epistle of 2012, the LNC has a core that reached out and built an Intra-Regional Alliance within the Nationalities of the Lower Niger; then the Multi-Regional Alliance that brought in the Yoruba and Middle Belt (MNN that later birthed NINAS) and the International Alliance that extended to the policy beltways of Washington DC and New York.

The Movement for New Nigeria (MNN) was an Alliance of Self-Determination ORGANIZATIONS across the South and Middle-Belt, enlightening and mobilizing the Peoples (Ethnic Nationalities) of the South and Middle-Belt, being the Alliance Territory.

The Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) is an Alliance of the PEOPLES (Indigenous Ethnic Nationalities) of Southern and the Middle-Belt who in response to the invitation of the Self-Determination Organizations of the Alliance Territory, stepped forward for the Assertion of the Self-Determination Rights of the peoples of the Alliance Territory, since it is a peoples’ right as the name shows.

MNN was a Special Purpose Vehicle (and a Decoy) to rally those enslaved in Nigeria together to dismantle the Apartheid-like 1999 Constitution. That task was substantially completed by the December 16, 2020 Constitutional Force Majeure.

It is now safe to inform us that in reality, MNN was actually a ‘Movement for No Nigeria and the Strategic Decoy Objectives of presenting the MNN Platform as “Movement for New Nigeria” has been fully achieved and so we shall gradually retire the mention of the MNN in our public communications and instead focus the attention of the Public to NINAS as the Alliance that has emerged from the years of painstaking work to lead the peoples of the Alliance Territories into the extrication of their Sovereignties that been hijacked and confiscated by the Caliphate proprietors of One-Nigeria who seized the carcass of the defunct Federation of Nigeria to erect the toxic One-Nigeria since the 1966 demise of the Federation of Nigeria. (This MNN Decoy Strategy information was shared with all the Biafra Agitation Groups in confidence but that trust was heinously breached by Nnamdi Kanu who instead, chose to hoist that Movement for New Nigeria name-tag before his hoodwinked gullibles as evidence that the LNC working for, and heavily financed by the Fulani, to preserve One-Nigeria and frustrate the “Restoration of Biafra”. knowing, for obvious reasons, that the LNC was not going to respond to this Falsehood from inside Nigeria).

The LNC laser-beam onslaught against the 1999 Constitution was also deliberately presented by the rogue franchise merchants to their gullibles and the rest of our people, as proof that the LNC was only after Constitution Amendment. These are some of the deep roots of the heavy debilitations the LNC had to endure, and the reasons why any dealings with the clear-minded criminal called Nnamdi Kanu is ruled out.

With the 1999 Constitution now distressed, the peoples of Southern and Middle Belt Nigeria, cooperating under the aegis of Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) have stepped in to extricate their Sovereignties from the defunct Federation of Nigeria in readiness for fresh Protocols within the context of their inalienable right to Self-Determination.

Let us please be guided so we do not confuse the public and inadvertently continue to arm the Rogue Biafra Franchise with Propaganda Materials.
