The aim of this article is to open up the thinking ability of young Nigerians who continue to be manipulated by their elders whom they look up to for guidance. Having successfully dragged young people to give themselves to elections 2023 instead of first correcting the faulty constitutional arrangements of the Nigeria Union, using the misleading slogan that “a new Nigeria is possible” under the fraud called 1999 Constitution foisted upon Nigerians, now the same cunning individuals have started a new deception over the meaning of “citizen”.
One such influencer is a celebrity lawyer who helped to drag his many followers to those doomed elections, and rather than now tell his depressed and disappointed followers that their vote never counts in unitary Nigeria, but it is their act of going to vote that is needed to be seen by the watching world, he is leading them down another dark byway this time telling them that elections having been rigged, they can still salvage something by reclaiming their citizenship!
Just because a word can be applied in Europe, Australia and North America does not always mean that it is applicable in Nigeria. Such are the words “citizen” and “citizenship”. Nigeria is an artificial country created and maintained by a unitary Instrument of Governance, deceitfully called “1999 Constitution” that does not have the mandate of Nigerians because they never made it or agreed it. Such is this place called “Nigeria”. It is the owners of that imposed Forgery, ie the 1999 Constitution who are the lords of Nigeria and who by force and deception keep Nigerians inside the unitary Union they created. We know who they are, they are the immigrant settler Fulani, helped into a dominating position by the departing British around the time of Independence in 1960. Making no secret of their agenda, Ahmadu Bello the then Premier of the Northern Region, declared that henceforth Nigeria would be “ruthlessly” turned into the “estate” of the Fulani, and Nigerians would be a “conquered” people – as reported on 12th October 1960. That 1999 Constitution is the Instrument that brings about the Fulanization Agenda declared by Ahmadu Bello: it overrides Sovereignty, and hijacks the Self-Determination of indigenous Ethnic Nations. HOW then can Nigerians ever think to apply the word “citizen” of Nigeria to themselves? As a consequence of that 1999 Constitution Nigerians are a CONQUERED people, so cannot truthfully be referred to as “citizens” of Nigeria. What they are, are SUBJECTS of Nigeria.
The word “subject” has Latin roots. “Sub” means under, and “jacio/jacere” means to throw. So subject means someone “thrown under” something or someone else. Thus, a subject is someone who is under the power of another. To put it plainly, as long as Nigerians accept the fraud called 1999 Constitution to govern them, since it was not made or agreed by them, they place themselves under the power of the Fulani Caliphate who are the owners of that 1999 Constitution, and, in so doing, Nigerians are in reality subjects of the Fulani’s unitary Nigeria not citizens in the real sense.
We can use an example from history to illustrate how Nigerians are subjects of Nigeria as presently constituted, not citizens by looking at the country that became the United States of America, quoting from and using material from The Difference Between A Citizen And A Subject by W R Miller, 2015.
With the Declaration of Independence by Congress, on 4th July 1776, “a nation was born in a day”, so those who had been subjects of the English Crown now became citizens of the free independent states that had now confederated together and started a new political association.
“The United States are a new nation, or political society, formed at first by the Declaration of Independence, out of those British subjects in America, who were thrown out of royal protection by Act of Parliament, passed in December, 1775. A citizen of the United States, means a member of this new nation. The principle of government being radically changed by the revolution, the political character of the people was also changed from subjects to citizens.
The difference is immense. Subject… means one who is under the power of another; but a citizen is an unit of a mass of free people, who, collectively, possess Sovereignty.
Subjects look up to a master, but citizens are so far equal, that none have hereditary rights superior to others. Each citizen of a free state contains, within himself, by nature and the Constitution, as much of the common Sovereignty as another…”
Despite being warned by NINAS that Nigerians should FIRST correct the faulty constitutional basis of the artificial Nigeria Union, Nigerians went headlong towards the sham elections 2023. As predicted, their problems have multiplied, and the existential threats they face from the Fulani Conquest Agenda have increased. So what should Nigerians do now? The solution remains what it has been since 1999 when the 1999 Caliphate Constitution was foisted upon Nigerians. The solution is therefore to TERMINATE the operation of that 1999 Constitution. The NINAS Proposition to do so is an ORDERLY PROCESS based on United Nations instruments (eg UNDRIP) and international law, and has been on the Table since 16 December 2020 when the Constitutional Force Majeure was Declared. It involves Transitioning to Renegotiate the Nigeria Union. Yes, sham elections have taken place, but Nigerians can stop further crises and further insecurity by even now Rejecting and Repudiating the fraudulent and illegitimate 1999 Constitution then going to Transitioning.
We should also consider why so many Nigerians are gullible and so easily deceived by influencers and by the Fulani Caliphate’s willing tools. An elderly gentleman has answered that for us, he said that it is because of a “sheer unwillingness to learn”. Reader, especially if you are a young Nigerian, it is hoped that is not your attitude, but that after reading this article you will do your own Research about the grand swindle called 1999 Constitution
