THE ROAD TO FREEDOM - MOVEMENT FOR NEW/NO NIGERIA (MNN) & NIGERIAN INDIGENOUS NATIONALITIES ALLIANCE FOR SELF-DETERMINATION (NINAS)
If you are trapped or enslaved, in order to get your freedom you first must have a plan and devise your escape route. The indigenous people of Nigeria have been trapped up in a Union that produces retardation (backwardness), corruption, terrorism, fear, and a system that is Apartheid in nature, favouring some over others, and breeding mediocrity in all things. We have had enough of it! We want to live free, able to control our lives and our future. MNN-NINAS is that road to freedom.
MNN and NINAS – WHO ARE THEY?
MNN is the Movement for New/(No) Nigeria that is, an Alliance comprising of Middle Belt Congress (MBC), Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO – the Yoruba), and Lower Niger Congress (LNC). Although we each work in our Blocs, we come together as the MNN Alliance. It is this MNN Alliance that is the custodian of our Strategy, the pathway for us to achieve self-determination and independence, that is: FREEDOM!
NINAS stands for the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-determination. This is the joint multi-ethnic Alliance of the indigenous PEOPLES that comprise the MNN Alliance territory. That is, the indigenous PEOPLES of Middle Belt, Oodua and Lower Niger Blocs, in Alliance.
A simple working knowledge for MNN and NINAS can be put this way:
- MNN is the Alliance of the three PLATFORMS (MBC, IOO and LNC) that are the keepers/custodians of the self-determination Strategy.
- NINAS is the Alliance of the indigenous PEOPLES of Middle Belt, Oodua and Lower Niger Blocs seeking self-determination for each ethnic nationality.
We all hear and read about how our people do very well abroad either in school, university or their chosen professions. Abroad, our People are able to reach their God-given potentials and be positive contributors to the society there. Yet, in Nigeria our people’s lives are stagnating and even retarding. Clearly, something keeps our people in Nigeria held down to experience an unfavourable agenda of, “never allow them to have control over their future” (To learn more about the context, please see the speech of Sardauna Ahmadu Bello in our Articles section).
From 1999, the MNN Alliance identified the Mechanisms that keep us enslaved, the Imposed 1999 Constitution being chief amongst the Mechanisms and the Alliance’s Strategy is a non-violent, internationally acceptable means to remove those Mechanisms. It includes Self-determination for each of the indigenous ethnic nationalities in our Alliance Territory, thus NINAS (as explained above).
Self-determination for each of the indigenous ethnic nationalities in our MNN Alliance is the way to our independence, and will empower us to provide properly for ourselves, and to give our children the good and safe lives we desire for them.
MNN-NINAS is a firm and active commitment to creating and maintaining friendships, alliances and productive unity among all the indigenous people of our Alliance Territory, both at home and abroad.

CALL TO ACTION
Freedom from Nigeria is a community and community action for NINAS and our international friends, seeking freedom from all that Nigeria represents, through Self-determination for the indigenous ethnic nationalities in our Alliance.
We have a call to action!
The Road to Freedom has already been worked out for us by MNN Alliance.
People who are enslaved and entrapped have a duty to themselves and their children, to get involved in their own rescue. Such work cannot be left to others to do while we lie back and watch. There is work to do. There is raising of awareness to do. Like everything in life, this all needs money too, so we ourselves must be prepared to fund our own rescue. Our children are relying on us to prepare a good future for them. So we must act as if we love them.
SAY “YES” TO FREEDOM TODAY!
NOTE: Although these are general words in English vocabulary, here we define them specifically as they apply to Nigeria, and to the Nigerian context.
Constitution: It is a legal document and the highest law in the country. It is a contract, a social contract that describes how the ethnic nationalities are to live together, interact together, and share what they want to.
Self-determination: Self-governance i.e. your own ethnic people being able to choose/decide the way they want to live, and having the power to decide their own future.
Ethnic Nationalities: United Nations provides the basis upon which ethnic groups are identified by ethnic nationality distinct from citizenship or country of legal nationality but race, color, language, religion, customs of dress or eating, tribe, or various combinations of these characteristics.
In the context of Nigeria, the MNN/NINAS has defined 4 ethnic nationalities: Sharia North, Yoruba, Middle Belt and Lower Niger.
Referendum: A referendum is a direct and universal vote in which an entire electorate (the people) is invited to vote on a particular proposal (nationwide or local). In the context of Nigeria, it is a special vote by the people carried out according to the ETHNIC NATIONALITIES to decide if they want to be in the Union of Nigeria. So Ijaw decide for Ijaw. Yoruba decide for Yoruba. Igbo decide for Igbo, etc. (It will be supervised by the United Nations)
Force Majeure: a legal term for when something unusual happens that prevents a contract from being honoured. In the context of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution, the changes made to the 1963 Constitution that took away the autonomy of the regions and their self-governance was not made by the will of the people but by military decree and so is not for the people by the people and so fraudulent and not binding. Another example is when Arewa took up Islamic Sharia in a Union supposed to be a secular one, it means the social contract/Constitution got broken, and so can no longer be kept.
Restructuring: changing the arrangement of Nigeria, this can be done in several ways, such as by having true Federalism or a Confederation under the current constitution.
Restructuring vs Self-determination: Restructuring is a change in the arrangement of Nigeria, while Self-determination is when an ethnic nationality self-governs and has the power to decide the way their people live.
