Middle Belt, Southern Leaders give FG 5-Point Demand for Continued Stay in Nigeria .

 It appears leaders of the middle belt and the southern part of Nigeria want to go their separate ways . The forum on Wednesday, March 17, expressed serious concerns that their members are at the receiving end of herdsmen attacks . In light of this, the leaders presented a list of demands so that they don't free their people from Nigeria .


NINAS listed the following as their demands: 1. The federal government should formally announce and acknowledge the “constitutional grievances and sovereignty dispute” declared by the peoples of the south and Middle-Belt. 2. A formal commitment by the government to wholesale decommissioning and jettisoning of the 1999 Constitution. 3. An announcement suspending further general elections under the disputed 1999 Constitution. 4. A formal invitation to South and Middle-Belt people to work out a transitional authority, which shall specify the modalities for the transitioning process. 5. A formal initiation of a time-bound transitioning process to midwife the emergence of fresh constitutional protocols by a two-stage process.
