The Peoples Constitution, 1 Ladies and Gentlemen, we are mostly agreed in the Southern Belt (South & Middle Belt) that what we have in the 1999 Constitution is neither just, fair nor equitable

The Peoples Constitution

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are mostly agreed in the Southern Belt (South & Middle Belt) that what we have in the 1999 Constitution is neither just, fair nor equitable. Again, we are mostly agreed that the People did not write that constitution, neither did we vote to accept it as our document of administering the country. We were not consulted, we did not know from whence that evil document emanated, nor do we want it! Yet, we are totally sick and tired of that document and all it portends. So what do we do?

We need to have a Constitution that reflects the hopes, aspirations and will of the different nations that constitute the country! We were born as free men and women, and we choose to live as a free people! Their constitution does not make us live as a free people, so we shall write a Constitution that reflects equity, fairness and justice. We shall call it the Peoples Constitution, and shall conduct a plebiscite on it! We are the People, and our Will must be supreme, not the will of some criminals masquerading as leaders. Our time has come to quit squirming under the bed, and secure our freedom as the Peoples of Nigeria!

On this premise, we shall have a Constitution that is based on:

Regional autonomy
Regional parliamentary governments
Central parliamentary government
Equality of Regions
The Government of the Federation as an agency of the regions and NOT our master
No federal allocations
Regional self sufficiency
25% Regional Remission of taxes to run the central government
Equal representation in Parliament by all regions
Equal personnel contributions by all regions to military, customs and federal civil service
A National Board of Employment/Appointment/Promotions to have equitable representation
Total and absolute independence of the Judiciary
A federal police to enforce only federal laws
Regional and Municipal governments
A federal police that would only be answerable to Parliament
Regions controlling their airports and sea ports

And the Citizen shall be king!

A Constitution that guarantees the right of the citizen, the Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! This shall be our aim...our aspirations.

We shall not wait for the federal government to "permit" us to define the Peoples Constitution; we shall define our own constitution, and chase those armed robbers away from us!

This is our vision, this should be our mission!

We are in the solution phase; it's crunch time! Are we ready to take back what is ours???
