Below is the full text of the joint press conference
Being the Joint Press Text of of The Southern Nigeria Assembly(SNA), on Wednesday 17th July, 2019.
President Muhammadu Buhari Arrest And Proscribe Myetti Allah Leadership Now: A Clarion Call For Justice in Nigeria.
The Southern Nigeria Assembly, the supreme umbrella body and a coalition of all the indigenous youths organizations in the Southwest, South South and Southeast Geo Political Zones of Nigeria and In Diaspora, urgently call President Muhammadu Buhari’s led Federal Government to arrest and prosecute the current leadership of the Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) and other allies Likes over their recent seditious and inciteful hate speeches with preference to their malicious call for the arrest of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo over his advice In his open letter to President Buhari to stop the impending war via call for An Urgent National Conference. We see this heinous act of MACBAN as illicitly motivated, reckless, diversionary tactics, with devilish intent to put Nigeria on flames if Presidency fall into the trap of Arresting Chief Olusegun Obasanjo,We have Watched keenly most of the controversial activities of MACBAN recently, have directly and indirectly leading to mass murder and Genocidal Ethnic Cleansing against innocent Nigerians through allegedly perceived agents: dreaded militia Herdsmen arm, with attendant daily mass killings in our various communities across the nation, especially the recent wake of crises, killings, kidnapping and community invasion by their armed bandits elements, under the aegis of Fulani Herdsmen terrorist group, despite the allegedly N100 billion Naira recently tangled by the Federal Government to pacify this dreaded group as a frontal measure to win the terrorism war, unfortunately this singular stride has further increased our woes and agony unabated till date.
The rude provocative call for Chief Obasanjo’s arrest is a ploy of Myetti Allah to derail Nigeria’s governance system to total anarchy, a semblance of Venezuelan and Rwandan genocidal ethnic cleansing agenda.
Furthermore, it is an open invitation to put more hardship on the already helpless and suffocated citizenry, plagued in the world headquarters of poverty.
However, we implore the Federal Government to desist from any attempt to arrest Obasanjo but to show conspicuous appreciation to the former president for courage to speak the truth to power.
Similarly, the impunity move by the Myetti Allah is aimed at setting the nation ablaze, with attraction of grave consequences not limited thereto: political and economic sanctions from world super powers.
We observed with keen interest the concurrent evil bedevilling the Nigerian state as a premeditated agenda to cause war and civil unrest in Nigeria.
We are completely worried and compelled to react against the MACBAN for not calling for arrest of bandits and armed Herdsmen in the North, having continuously unleashed terror from Benue, Taraba, Osun, Enugu,Oyo, Ebonyi Ogun, Abia,Ekiti, Anambra and Ondo States without no fundamental arrest, not until recently on the Late Funke Olakunri’s killers arrest of suspects, though information is discreet and shoddy.
However, we shall holding MACBAN accountable for this crimes, precipitating our move to equally filling a legal action and petition against them both to our National Courts and the United Nations for championing ethnic cleansing agenda.
We need to return Nigeria to the *1963 Republican Constitution* which gives each region sufficient autonomy to manage its own resources and affairs.
Since the Northern elders have asked their killer herdsmen operating in the Southern Nigeria back to North, it is a welcome development. Regrettably the killer bandits have already caused us enough psychological trauma, killings of our people and collateral damage to lives and properties.
However, we call on all our people in the North to read the clear writing on the wall and do the needful now! If they cannot take cue from the recall of the killer herdsmen by the Northern elders to come back home, they must begin now to organize themselves in protective groups and take necessary measures to protect their lives, families and properties, since their safety may no longer be totally guaranteed by the present set up of Nigeria security agencies headed by almost the same set of people afflicting Nigerians.
Hence, precipitating the Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide, Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, Niger Delta Youth Movement, Ogonni Youth Council and Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, other Southern Youth leaders under the Southern Nigeria Assembly to urgently call for a National (Youth)Dialogue Summit of selected youth leaders from all ethnic nationalities in Nigeria and other critical stakeholders, and the process of delegates invitation is on ahead of 30th September to 1st October, 2019 slated for Lagos, details will be out soon.
Based on this premise, the National Dialogue shall serve as a means of urgently nipping in the bud and proffering immediate panacea to the hydra headed monsters called Armed Bandits/Killer Herdsmen on our various death points: intra-city and interstates highways, as well as addressing and setting the tone for a robust dialogue on other needful necessities: restructuring and new people’s constitution, economic integration and development, infrastructures, education, food security, youth and women empowerments, peace and security to mention a few.
Any other resolutions ancillary to the aforementioned demands.
We have emphatically spoken.
