|Prof Yemi Osinbajo|

For Family Writers
According to a publication by Vanguard Newspaper which dated 19/6/2017, brought to the attention of the News room of Family Writers Press, it has it that the Coordinator of Nigeria government Affairs, Prof Yemi Osinbajo has once again displayed a show of shame and his poorly educated status by making the world to see him as a half-baked Professor of Law as always obtainable in Yoruba land, when he described the Biafra agitation as renewed violation of Nigeria Constitution. Prof Yemi Osinbajo has publicly shown the world that if he is to be held from an academic competitive region like Biafraland, he is not yet educated enough to be badged with a professor receipt because a supposed Professor of Law as Prof Osinbajo as he claimed to be, is expected to discuss Biafra agitation legitimacy from the angles of both local and international laws and conventions and not goofing before the world as he gullibly did in Vanguard Newspaper publication.
Although, Family Writers Press is not a classroom nor Biafra Herald website a black board for lecturing Prof Yemi Osinbajo to understand the position of law on the lingering issue of Biafra agitation, I hereby beg the Family Writers leadership to permit me to use this medium to lecture the poorly educated professor on the position of law.
First of all, I want Prof Osinbajo of shame to by what is happening now understand the danger of imposing a Constitution of a country on the supposed citizens and go ahead to promulgate such constitution by saying “We the people of Nigeria hereby solemnly adopt this Constitution……” when it was obvious that it was Gen Abdulsalami Abubakar and few lawyers he selected wrote the said constitution and imposed it on the people. It is important for Prof Osinbajo to ask himself “did the people agitating for Biafra participated in drafting of the Constitution or do their consent, approval, acceptance and endorsement of the Constitution sought for before, during and after the draft of the Constitution”? Everybody in the defunct Nigeria knew that 1999 Constitution of Nigeria is single-handedly written and imposed by Gen Abdulsalami Abubakar. On this ground, how do any sane person talk about Nigeria Constitution before people who never accepted it nor endorsed it? Food for thought for Prof Osinbajo!
Secondly, it is important to ask the half-baked Prof Yemi Osinbajo “is it not the same violation of the Constitution which made Nigeria govt to detain and arraigned Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB trio for 18 months without any legal evidences to support that Nnamdi Kanu’s agitation for carving out ‘South-East’, ‘South-South’ and Igala communities of Kogi and Idoma of Benue state and forming same as Biafra Republic, is that a violation of any known law both domestic and international”? Do this (Chief-Judge) Prof Osinbajo declaration of violation of Constitution via Biafra agitation, a brand new violation or still part of the one which Nigeria govt fail to substantiate for a whole 18 months before Justice Binta Nyako? Prof Yemi Osinbajo should go back to classroom in order to understand that he is goofing by making extra-judicial statement of already ruling on the issue of Biafra agitation which its case is still in Court, and by this statement alone, Justice Binta Nyako should strike out the remaining case on the ground of executive interference of Judicial process.
Thirdly, I want to make Prof Osinbajo to understand that he is highly gullible by not knowing that every law made including the ones God made by himself is made for Human beings and not Human beings made for the law. Had it been that Biafrans have in first place given approval and acceptance of Nigeria Constitution and at a point say publicly that they are no more interested in the Constitution and content of the agreement, why can’t Nigeria govt test their resolve with a referendum instead of goofing about who violate Constitution or not? But in this case Biafrans never accepted this Constitution of Nigeria because Biafrans under Ralph Uwazurike as MASSOB leader started rejecting Nigeria and the Constitution since July 16, 1999, before IPOB under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (De Great) came in. This is to say that Biafrans never accepted Nigeria Constitution which Osinbajo talked about.
Finally, Prof Osinbajo should know that it is a human right violation to rule on a people without their acceptance and approval. I want the half-baked Prof Osinbajo to know that Biafra agitation simply mean SELF-DETERMINATION. It is an International right which many countries both the fail and successful ones have exercised before Biafrans begin. Instead of goofing again, Prof Yemi Osinbajo should facilitate a referendum for Biafrans and test the political resolve. If it favours the agitation, so be it. But if against, the world will see it.
