Opinion | The delusions of Genocide Generals and the burning House of Lugard

As the countdown continues on the Implementation of the Constitutional Force Majeure, Declared and Activated December 16, 2020 by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) to ease out the Fraudulent 1999 Constitution and wind up the Unitary Union it foists, it is evident that the heat from the massive onslaught against that Caliphate-Imposed Constitutional Basis of the Defunct Federation of Nigeria is now overwhelming and so the very authors of our Damnation are rushing into the arena in the desperation to put out the fire already consuming the Burning House of Lugard, but they are using petrol instead of water in that intervention.

Speaking at an event tagged Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) Legacy Dialogue, August 12, 2021, Nigeria’s Former Military Head of State, Gen Abdusalam Abubakar said that the inter-ethnic relationships and marriages among Nigerians would make it impossible for Secession bids to succeed in Nigeria.

Recall that Gen Abdusalam Abubakar was the Head of Nigeria’s Military Junta who, by Decree No 24 of 1999, Imposed the Obnoxious, Death-Dispensing 1999 Constitution of Nigeria which is now directly responsible for the dangerous disaster Nigeria has become for its Constituent Components.

Earlier this same week, Gen Ibrahim Babangida came out on Arise TV to insult our collective intelligence with his nauseating theory of SETTLED ISSUES in which he regurgitated his irritating postulations about the Non-Negotiable Unity of Nigeria* as well as the  Indivisibility and Indissolubility of Nigeria which he had in the last two decades been describing as “Settled Issues”.

It is clear that the two Genocide Generals are still stuck in their 1967 World, discussing Secession when the rest of the World has moved on to the Inalienable Right to Self-determination for all ethnic nations that are in their own ancestral space.

One may ask Ibrahim Babangida : “With whom did you settle the issues of Non-Negotiability, Indivisibility, Indissolubility and therefore Unity of Nigeria?”

One may also also ask Abdusalam Abubakar : “Is it only the Igbo and the Yoruba that are fed up with, and are now seeking extrication from the Unitary Union of Death you imposed via Decreee in 1999?”

Abdusalam Abubakar who currently heads a ridiculous “National Peace Committee” for Nigeria, should be asked : “What Peace can anyone Build on the Foundation of the Grave  Injustices institutionalized by his 1999 Constitution?”

Let those who know the road to the Hiltop Mansions of these two fellows in Minna, go and explain to them that the Peoples of Nigeria, who are facing the onslaught of the Murderous Fulani Invaders and whose Lives have been rendered meaningless by the actions, impositions and Manipulations of the Caliphate owners of their Toxic One-Nigeria, are now determined to end their misery by retrieving their Sovereignties hijacked by the illicit Federal Government of Nigeria since the 1967 Collapse of the Federation of Nigeria.

Let someone explain to the “Generals” that the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (aggregating the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria) have since December 16, 2020, Declared a Union Dispute on account of Grave Constitutional Grievances that had worsened and spread continuously since 1966 in the Nigeria that had since 1967 ceased to be the Federation and Secular Union it was AGREED to be at Independence in 1960.

Let the two be told that a critical mass of enlightened Young People from the 12-State Sharia Belt of the far North, operating under the aegis of the *Coalition of Northern Groups* (CNG), now agree with the NINAS Alliance (South and Middle-Belt), that Defunct Federation of Nigeria MUST now be Renegotiated and Reconfigured according the wishes of the Constituent Components of Nigeria as ascertained by Regional Referendums.

Let the two be shown the text of the December 16, 2020 Constitutional Force Majeure Proclamation of NINAS which sets out a Comprehensive Framework for the IMMEDIATE undertaking of the Inevitable Reconfiguration of the Defunct Union of Nigeria (published as Advertorial in the January 20, 2021 edition of the Guardian Newspaper at pages 38,39,40 & 41. Also available on the NINAS website http://www.ninasffn.org or that of the LNC http://www.lowernigercongress.org)

Let the two take all these to their long-time confederate Gen Muhammadu Buhari tell him that Nigeria will collapse unceremoniously if these issues are not immediately engaged. That is what Statesmen would do in the circumstances except they are telling us they are not.

The Agitations raging across the length and breadth of Nigeria are symptoms of a deep-seated malaise now marching Nigerians and Nigeria to their graves. The Solution is not in Unity Homilies, Grandstanding or the Arrest of Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu.

Addressing that Malaise is the Solution.
