The unerudite statement of the Office of Attorney General to the Federal (Fulani) Government of Nigeria, FGN, that Operation Amotekun is Illegal is highly insulting to Western Nigeria (A.K.A. United States of the Eekus), as established by the Western Nigerian Constitution, the Nigeria Independence Act of 1960, and the Republican Constitution of 1963 which is the legal, authentic, de-jure Constitution of Confederated Nigeria till date.
Having communicated as ignoramus of history, let me educate them of the Nigeria Political/Legal history…
the Southern Protectorate and the Northern Protectorate under the neo-slavery of the British Empire were whipped together as Niger Area and later administratively created to be an association of three autonomous Territories, with 3 distinct Governments, referred to as Nigeria for the purpose of Identification;
the autonomous Territories had been operating self governments before October 1, 1960;
three self governing entities WESTERN NIGERIA GOVERNMENT, EASTERN NIGERIA GOVERNMENT and NORTHERN NIGERIA GOVERNMENT entered into agreement as federating units to federate into independence on October 1, 1960 to become the Confederated Nigeria;
In 1963 the Federating units through a “referendated” plebiscite “referendated” into four federating units per the 1963 Republican Constitution & the Western Nigerian Constitution (as amended);
the 5 (five) 1963 Republican Constitutions of federal republic of Nigeria form the legal, authentic, de-jure constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
in January, 1966, Major General Johnson Thomas Umunnakwe Aguiyi-Ironsi, of the Nigeria Armed Forces, via decree 1, unilaterally, illegally, criminally suspended part of the 1963 constitution and replaced them with Unconstitutional rules called decrees; and promulgated illegal, criminal, treasonable “Decree No. 34″(—which abrogated the country’s federal structure in exchange for a unitary one—) crystallized this conspiracy theory;
in July, 1966, Muritala Mohammed led his fellow coup plotters to gather in Lagos, with the original intention of secession of the Northern Nigeria from Nigeria as a whole, but on being intimated by foreign interests, including Britain of opportunity to siezing power over the whole Nigeria, they abandoned secession, killed Ironsi, Fajuyi & many other influential Southerners & installed Lt. Col. Yakubu Gowon as the Head of State;
instead of reverting back to the 5 (five) 1963 Nigeria Constitutions, i.e. the status quo, Gowon continued with further illegal, criminal treasonable decrees, and
through these same decrees raped the sanctity of the federating units and criminally “dis-administered” them and confused them inside out into states;
till date the Nigeria decrees tagged Constitutions are products of the matrix of decrees reeled out by Illegal/Military governments.
the dis-structure of the legal foundational structure has made result-full governance almost impossible and proper governance virtually dislocated, resulting in impoverishing the innocent masses, whose ultimate interest is “good life”, in all ramifications.
Therefore it is pertinent that for the masses to have “good life” the template of governance in Nigeria must be based on the Nigeria Independence Act & the Constitutional structure as contained in the 5 Constitutions as at 1963, which are the legal, authentic, de-jure Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, till date …
So, for the education of all that cares to know, Operation Amotekun, initiated by the defacto Governors of Western Nigeria (A.K.A. United States of the Eekus), can not be illegal, “except” the Western Nigerians themselves decide so.
… “Amotekun is just the town crier, the King masquerade is yet to arrive !!!”
We shall overcome
Aluta Continua, Victoria Acerta.
