The historical context for the proclamation of a historic Constitutional Force Majeure (CFM) by NINAS on 16th December 2020 in Lagos is contained in the CFM Notice link attached below.
Briefly, Nigeria is a union of ethnic nationalities grouped into three regions (a fourth was later carved out) that agreed to be united politically prior to Independence in 1960, as long as certain conditions were met and kept. That Union terminated in 1966 when military coups overthrew the Federating Constitution. From that time, ethnic nationalities were kept in an arrangement with the type of Union they never wanted through military might and Military Decrees. This culminated in the imposition of the 1999 Constitution at the start of civilian rule — a document that does not have the consent of the governed, for it is an imposed Forgery and Military Decree 24 renamed.
This 1999 Constitution created an Apartheid-like unitary system, which prevents national development via a 68-item Exclusive List under central control and also by seizing the resources of indigenous ethnic nationalities. It also prevents indigenous peoples from equipping themselves for proper self-defense against ARMED killer Fulani herdsmen militias and Islamist terrorists, who, under the current Fulani-led government, are actioning what has been called genocide for land grab by local and international observers.
It is certain that indigenous peoples will not stand still and allow themselves to be slaughtered by the Fulani-inspired genocide against them. NINAS Movement has a strategy that can stop the killings nationwide without resorting to civil war to stop the Fulani jihadist killers. Since the instrument being used to enable the genocide is the 1999 Constitution, NINAS started the process of decommissioning, stating that the Constitution was not made by “we, the people” as it falsely claims via the ORDERLY PROCESS of Constitutional Force Majeure Proclaimed on 16th December 2020. A process similar to the method used by South Africa to decommission their Apartheid Constitution is being followed.

The FIVE DEMANDS of the Constitutional Force Majeure Remain the Agenda of the NINAS Movement:
- (A) A formal announcement by the Federal Government of Nigeria acknowledging the Constitutional Grievances and Sovereignty Dispute now declared by the peoples of South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria.
- (B) A formal commitment by the Federal Government of Nigeria to the wholesale Decommissioning and Jettisoning of the 1999 Constitution as the basis of the Federation of Nigeria as was done by the Government of Apartheid-Era South Africa in 1990, to commence the process by which the Apartheid Constitution of the then South Africa was eased out.
- (C) A formal announcement by the Federal Government of Nigeria suspending further General Elections under the Disputed 1999 Constitution since winners of such elections will Swear to and govern by that Constitution.
- (D) A formal initiation of a time-bound transitioning process to midwife the emergence of fresh constitutional protocols by a two-stage process in which the Constituent Regional Blocs will, at the first stage, distill and ratify their various Constitutions by referendums and plebiscites and, in the second stage, negotiate the terms of federating afresh as may be dictated by the outcomes of referendum and plebiscites.
- (E) A formal invitation to the people of the South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria to work out and emplace a Transitional Authority, which shall specify the modalities for the transitioning process, including the composition and mandate of the transitional authority, as well as the time-frame for the transitioning and other ancillary matters.
