Olayomi Koiki, media aide to Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly referred to as Sunday Igboho, has defined why the Oduduwa Nation agitators have insisted on the 2023 elections boycott in South-West states.
Koiki, who spoke with SaharaReporters on Friday, famous that the nation’s extant structure is defective.
He stated a referendum will likely be carried out however earlier than then, the agitators are participating in what he known as self-determination.
Koiki acknowledged that there’s the necessity for a constitutional reform else no different election ought to maintain on such a fraudulent Structure.
He stated, “Earlier than a referendum can happen, we have to first educate our individuals and provides them a purpose behind why we imagine that there shouldn’t be an election. What are the explanations? I’ll return to the 1914 amalgamation, that amalgamation expired in 2014, it was a forceful amalgamation on us as a individuals, as a tribe, we by no means signed for that amalgamation.
“The 1999 Structure can also be a purpose for us not to enter one other election to resume that rip-off that has been used on Nigerians. The structure that was given to us was when Abdul salami (Abubakar), a former army dictator was on seat earlier than President Olusegun Obasanjo got here on board in 1999.
“Our leaders have already given 90 days to the Federal Authorities, that 90 days expired which known as the drive majeure. It was issued by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Dedication (NINAS) made up of South-West, Center Belt, South-East and I feel the South-South, they got here collectively to provide 90 days to the Federal Authorities when it comes to the proclamation of that structure that it must be appeared into. The federal authorities has not appeared into that, it has expired on the seventeenth of March and a press release has come out.
“What we’re doing now known as acclamation: we have to discuss to our individuals, educate them, advise them, give them due route when it comes to transferring ahead out of this nation, the entire breakaway out of the union. The union introduced us collectively in 1960 as one entity, that entity expired after the primary army coup in 1966. Meaning we’re now not practising the regional authorities.
“The Nigerian authorities has continued to misinform Nigerians when it comes to restructuring the nation and so they have refused to restructure the nation. After we got here collectively, it was an entity; that entity has already gone once we stopped working the regional authorities.
“Shifting ahead now, we’re taking our marketing campaign door to door, home to accommodate, avenue to avenue, market to market, advising and educating our those that we’ve got the rights below the United Nations Constitution to change into a nation. We’re already registered below UNPO (The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation).
“Scotland has a union with Nice Britain way back to 1701 however now Scotland is demanding complete self-determination out of Nice Britain, that doesn’t imply that they do not have high quality good well being care, the entire facilities had been offered to their residents however they’re nonetheless trying to break free.
“In 1976, we had a Native Authorities Reform Modification, until date are you able to level out of the 774 native authorities areas we’ve got on this nation, which one is functioning as much as the usual that there isn’t a single out-of-school little one? All these are points affecting the Yoruba individuals and people of different tribes and that’s the reason we’ll proceed going by way of the peaceable method advisable by the UN constitution.
“Earlier than we will communicate of a referendum, we have to exit first, communicate to the individuals, we’ll then current our case which is ongoing already by these main us to say that the UN ought to relax and do what was carried out to South Sudan in 2011 to permit peaceable break free out of this nation.
“As Pastor Paul Adefarasin stated, Nigeria is a rip-off and nobody ought to consider even speaking concerning the election with the fraudulent structure.”
In December 2020, distinguished leaders from varied ethnic teams from the South-West, South-East, South-South and the Center Belt below the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Dedication gave the Nigerian Authorities a 90-day ultimatum to represent a committee on Sovereign Nationwide Convention to resolve on the repeal of the 1999 Structure or to dissolve Nigeria’s amalgamation of 1914.
The leaders stated all elections have to be suspended in order that winners wouldn’t be sworn in with the identical 1999 Structure which they described as defective.
On March 18, NINAS gave the Nigerian authorities one other 30-day ultimatum after the expiration of the 90-Day Discover of Grave Constitutional Grievances issued by NINAS to the Nigerian authorities on December 16, 2020.
