ÀMÒTÉKÙN: Between the Preservation of Yorubaland from Fulani Conquest & Sacrificing Yorubaland on the Alter of Bola Tinubu’s Political Career; the Yoruba Must Now Make a Choice.
(Being a Solidarity message by the Joint Secretariat of the LNC and MNN Alliance, to the Yoruba World Congress (YWC) on occasion of the January 21, 2020 Protest March in the 6 State Capitals of Yorubaland in Support of the Amotekun Regional Self-Policing Initiative).
Going by the loud internal Yoruba altercations around the brave Regional Self-Policing Outfit, Amotekun, jointly Initiated by the governors of the six states in Yorubaland, especially relating to the disposition of a former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his vaulting ambition to become the President of the distressed Nigeria in 2023, it is now self-evident that key battleground for winning in the current Yoruba self-defense standoff with the Fulani-controlled “Federal Government” of Nigeria (quite simply put, with the Fulani) and therefore, the winning of Yoruba emancipation from Caliphate-Nigeria, now lies in whether or not the presidential ambition of Bola Ahmed Tinubu is collapsed or salvaged.
On the one hand, if that inordinate presidential ambition of Tinubu is collapsed, that automatically removes the greatest internal obstacle and sabotage now confronting Yorubaland in the war of self-preservation currently being forced on it by the rogue “Federal Government” of Unitary Nigeria which the Yoruba is most courageously waging by way of the Amotekun Security Network Initiative, and so victory in the Yoruba self-emancipation war comes within reach and becomes realizable.
Furthermore, if that ambition of Tinubu is, by hook or crook, sustained, salvaged or preserved, it would, of necessity, be at the expense of Yoruba self-preservation and self-emancipation because the demand already made by Fulani as their condition for making Tinubu president in 2023, is the complete dismantling of the Amotekun initiative and therefore, the Yoruba must perish the thought of self-preservation and self-redemption in order for Tinubu to be president of Nigeria.
Whatever the Yoruba does with the whole situation will hold the most potent aces for and will largely define what will happen with the rest of the South and Middle Belt in this vexed debate about the basis and terms of the disputed Federation of Nigeria.
The trump card right now in the hands of the Yoruba for winning this all-important in-house battle with its celebrated but renegade political merchant called Bola Tinubu is to intensify the push to take down the rogue 1999 Constitution upon which the journey to so-called 2023 presidential election is premised.
The takedown of the 1999 Constitution IMMEDIATELY truncates the journey to the 2023 presidential election.
Incidentally, the key to the immediate takedown of the 1999 Constitution lies in the immediate rejection (i.e. inside 2020), of the 1999 Constitution as the basis of any further national elections in Nigeria, on the ground that the Yoruba and the rest of Southern and Middle Belt Nigeria had, by way of various regional SOLEMN ASSEMBLIES across the Southern and Middle Belt territories of Nigeria, formally repudiated the 1999 Constitution as the basis of the Nigerian union and by extension, Nigeria’s democracy.
Happily, on account of the South and Middle Belt alliance (MNN Alliance), which is jointly pushing for the immediate ouster of the Caliphate-imposed 1999 Constitution, the Yoruba will not be acting alone in the onerous task of taking down the repudiated 1999 Constitution as it would be doing so in the committed company of the rest of Southern and Middle Belt of Nigeria which, like the Yoruba, equally reject the master-servant union of Nigeria FORCEFULLY foisted upon them by the Fulani-controlled Sokoto Islamic Caliphate.
In this regard, may we recall the September 7, 2017 Yoruba Solemn Assembly In Ibadan, preceded by the April 27, 2015 SOLEMN ASSEMBLY of the peoples of the Lower Niger in Port Harcourt as well as the subsequent Middle Belt edition in Makurdi, July 18, 2018), during which each expressly REPUDIATED the 1999 Constitution as the basis of Nigeria and it’s so-called democracy.
For the Yoruba, therefore, the self-redemption task at hand is basically narrowed down to stopping the inordinate presidential ambition of Bola Ahmed Tinubu by helping to execute the urgent task of ousting the repudiated 1999 Constitution.
The LNC and its MNN wholeheartedly stand with the Yoruba in this fight of life and death with the rogue “Federal Government” of Unitary Nigeria which proclaims as illegal and unconstitutional, the Self-defense Initiative (SDI) by the Yoruba against the killings and rampage the invading, murderous Fulani militia, masquerading as “herdsmen”.
