Yoruba Nation agitators and other self-determination groups have listed six demands as President Muhammadu Buhari departs for the United Nations General Assembly.

Naija News reports that the agitators have concluded plans to hold a massive protest at the UN headquarters in the New York on September 24 as Buhari address the General Assembly.

The presidency had on Saturday disclosed that the president will depart Nigeria for the 76th UN General Assembly in New York Sunday.

However, in a statement by the spokesperson for the agitators, Maxwell Adeleye, the groups listed six demands that must be met by the Nigerian government.

The demands are; the abolition of the 1999 Constitution and the suspension of further elections (Particularly the 2023 elections), conduct a referendum, end to Fulani Genocide, end to Oligarchy, and declaration of Miyyeti Allah as a terrorist organisation among others.

Rather than listen to the yearnings and aspirations of our people, the Buhari-led Government has consistently waged war against people who attempt to checkmate the menace of Miyyetii Allah in the name of grazing of cows,” the statement quoted NINAS chairman, Banji Akintoye, as saying.

Our appeal to the Government, therefore, is to address the issues raised in the December 16, 2020 Constitution Force Majure declared by NINAS. This appeal is necessary so that Indigenous Nationalities in NINAS Territories can peacefully negotiate for what they want without further delay.

“Our demand remains conduct of a referendum so that the Indigenous people of the South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria can lawfully and legally decide on their nationhood and sovereignty. We demand the immediate abolition of the imposed 1999 Constitution.

“We demand an end to the genocide being perpetrated by Miyyetii Allah against our people. Miyyetii Allah is a Terrorist group and it should be declared such by the United Nations. The invasion of our land in the name of grazing is enough. What is happening in our Territories today is State-sponsored Terrorism and Land grab, not cow grazing.”

He stated that the agitators will resume protest on 24th September, Opposite the United Nations Headquarters to tell “President Muhammad Buhari to his face that his Miyyetii Allah people are the enemy number one of the people of South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria, and they are the authentic Terrorists.”
