The sovereignty of the federating regions has been subverted and hijacked by an illicit Federal Government now exclusively controlled by a small minority section, the Fulani via the instrumentality of the imposed Unitary Constitution of 1999 in a supposed federation. That illicit federal government, controlled by the Fulani, took the secular state of Nigeria into the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) and condoned the imposition of SHARIA in the 12 contiguous states of the far North. SHARIA is mutually exclusive with democracy and constitutionalism and endangers the predominantly Christian South and Middle Belt as the adherents of SHARIA owe it a duty of faith to kill all others who they consider infidels. 

The imposed Constitution contains a 68-item federal exclusive list by which the illicit federal government owns and controls all economic assets and governmental power resulting in a situation worse than Apartheid South Africa for the indigenous peoples of Nigeria. So grave is this situation of Nigeria under this illicit constitution that the UN Special Rapporteur to Nigeria, Agnes Callamard, reported in 2019 that the constitutional arrangement of Nigeria is like a pressure cooker for injustice and this has become a threat to global security and peace considering the 200 million people that would be in distress should Nigeria snap. In December of 2020, the US Secretary of State added Nigerian to the list of countries of particular concern (Blacklist of Worst Religious Freedom Violators) for egregious violations of religious freedoms under the International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA).  Similarly, the International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, announced that her Office has concluded that there is a reasonable basis to believe that members of Boko Haram and its splinter groups and the Nigerian Security Forces have committed acts constituting crimes against humanity and war crimes: murder; rape, sexual slavery, including forced pregnancy and forced marriage; enslavement; torture; cruel treatment; outrages upon personal dignity; taking of hostages; intentionally directing attacks against the civilian population or against individual civilians not taking direct part in hostilities; intentionally directing attacks against personnel, installations, material, units or vehicles involved in a humanitarian assistance; intentionally directing attacks against buildings dedicated to education and to places of worship and similar institutions; conscripting and enlisting children under the age of fifteen years into armed groups and using them to participate actively in hostilities; persecution on gender and religious grounds; and other inhumane acts.

On account of the illicit 1999 Constitution, Nigeria has become the poverty capital of the world and the most dangerous place for Christians with the ongoing Genocide that has resulted in over 100,000 killed, over 3 million displaced from their lands and livelihood and over 300,000 made refugees.  Worse still, the sovereignty of the constituent components of Nigeria has been fundamentally compromised by the open borders policy of the minority controlled illicit federal government of Nigeria, in which Fulani from all over Africa are being brought over and forcefully resettled in what has been established to be an ethnic cleansing campaign by the minority against the indigenous nationalities of Nigeria. 

The over centralized system has become an existential threat to the peoples of the South and Middle Belt numbering over 150 million people. As pointed out by the Special Rapporteur, if nothing is done very urgently about this fast degenerating situation in Nigeria, it is only a matter of time for Nigeria to descend into chaos and precipitate an unprecedented refugee crisis on the rest of the world involving over 200 million people and destabilizing the whole of Africa by providing a fertile launch pad for the global terror network led by ISIS and Al Qeeda which already made a juncture with Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen and ISWAP in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin. We incorporate and adopt the December 16, 2020 joint multi-regional proclamation by Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) as the wider articulation of what the problems are and the solution propositions to which we are inviting the global community at this time.
