UN Assembly: No going back on mega protest — Yoruba Nation, others

Self-determination agitators under the aegis of Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) say they will go ahead with the one-million-man freedom march at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Friday.

NINAS Chairman, Professor Banji Akintoye, said this in a statement on Thursday by the group’s Director of Public Communications, Maxwell Adeleye,

President Muhammadu Buhari is billed to address the United National General Assembly at its 76th session today.

Akintoye stated: “The Nigerian Government has started hiring black foreigners living in the United States of America with $500 per head to stage a Pro-Buhari and One Nigeria March opposite the United Nations Headquarters.”

According to him, the will of the people would prevail no matter how the Federal Government tries to scuttle the NINAS grand finale march.

The group, which comprises members from the Lower Niger Congress and Middle-Belt Movement at NINAS, also called on the UN to take urgent step to prevent Nigeria from descending into chaos.

It described the 1999 constitution as a fraud against the people of South and Middle-Belt having been “enacted without the consent of the people.”

It demanded the conduct of a regional referendum so that the indigenous people could decide on their nationhood, among others.

All the indigenous people of the South and Middle-Belt in the United States and Canada have been urged to troop out in large number tomorrow.
