News Release: A Critical Evaluation Of The Despicable Activities Of Red-Capped Igbo Natives In Nigeria
|Igbo Chiefs on a recent visit to Buhari|
A core foundation upon which International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law-Intersociety was founded in 2008 is for the recognition, respect, preservation and protection at all times of right to ethnic identity of all ethnic groups in Nigeria particularly the Igbo race. The right to ethnic identity under reference is such that must be recognized and respected during national elections, formulation and implementation of national policies and allocations of national political appointments. Our concept of right to ethnic identity, which is also in line with international standards; is the right of every ethnic nationality and citizen in Nigeria to live and prosper side by side with another member of Nigeria’s ethnic nationality and citizenship without emasculation and magisterial lordship. Nigeria’s present first class and second class citizenship is frowned at, at all times and must be fought to a stand-still.

The 2015 General Elections with their supplementary segments; involving one Presidential, 29 Gubernatorial, 109 Senatorial, 360 House of Reps and 1,152 State Legislative polls, have come and gone. What lies on the table of the out-going governors and the Presidency is democratic accountability and stock taking. On 19th April 2015, we (International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law) issued a public statement titled: “Revisiting & Institutionalizing Obinomics Governance Approach As A Standard Benchmark For New Governors In Nigeria”. The Obinomics remains an indisputable standard of measurement for public governance accountability in Nigeria. It involves the beginning and end of a democratic governance process.

|Governor Willie Obiano|
It is the position of the leadership of International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law that the two pillars holding the democratic foundation in modern time particularly in Africa are laid on input and output legitimacies. When a governor emerges in an election through credible popular votes, his or her emergence becomes a product of input legitimacy. But if he or she emerges otherwise, his or her emergence becomes a product of mechanical legitimacy. Output legitimacy is the case when the input legitimate governor changes and upgrades the socio-economic conditions of his or her people and their environmental abode through innovative and creative governing styles.

News Release: From Polling Booths To Information Propaganda Warfare: Enemies Of Igbo Nation Are At It Again
The leadership of International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law has observed with dismay and total disappointment over unleashing of another round of warfare against the Igbo nation in Nigeria. It is vividly recalled that the referenced Nation have on 28th March 2015 voted massively for the out-going President & Commander-in –Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and his PDP. The massive Igbo votes came from sedentary Igbo natives (Igbo natives of home origin) and pastoralist Igbo natives (Igbo natives of outside residency). The massive Igbo votes would have been doubled or tripled but for systematic and scientific castration of their voting strengths by Prof Attahiru Jega’s INEC by way of denial of PVCs leading to exclusion of millions of their registered brothers and sisters from the voting. As if it was not enough, millions of them with PVCs were further denied voting by designed widespread Card Reader failure in polling booths particularly in most of over 15,000 polling units in the Southeast zone.

By Kenneth Uwadi
It was normal news report in a popular Owerri based newspaper; the type we are used to seeing regularly, but would, most likely, merely glance through before turning our attention to more ‘important’ matters. But when I saw a particular report, confined to a small corner of the newspaper, something about it spoke a very clear message to my heart of what will happen in the Governorship election in Imo State. The newspaper has the heading, “Imo Speaker loses Senatorial election,” another headline said “ Rochas Okorocha furious over defeat”

Political Trading in Nigeria includes defecting from one political party to another for the purpose of material and other vested interests. It is also Political Trading when religious leaders or preachers turn their playing grounds into political Mecca and Jerusalem receiving, praying and prophesying for elected top political office holders such as president, vice president, governors, senate or deputy senate president, speaker or deputy speaker of federal and State legislative houses; for the purpose of getting bountiful cuts and contracts from the government coffers; without putting electoral, governance or legislative illegitimacy of the referenced elected politicians into account.

News Release: 2015 Presidential Election Outcome: Other Than Threat Of Violence, Asari Dokubo Has Said It All
The 2015 Presidential Poll in Nigeria may have papery come and gone, but the wounds inflicted on different ethnic nationalities by masqueraded ethno-religious zealots wearing the gown of unbiased electoral umpire can never heal in a hurry. If extreme care is not taken, the wounds can transform into triggers, which in turn, can snowball into a new generational militancy and insurgency in the country including its oil rich zone. The injured and wounded ethnic nationalities remain the minorities of the Southern Nigeria, the minorities of the Northern Nigeria popularly called the Middle-Belt; the Christian minorities of the North, the pastoralist Igbos and the pastoralist minorities or Igbos and Southern minorities of the Southwest and the Northern residency; and the Igbo nation. Below is the public statement issued on 1st April 2015 by Mr. Asari Dokubo of the suspended Niger Delta Volunteers Force, on behalf of the Southern Minorities Self Determination Groups popularly called Niger Delta Militants. It is important to point out here that we are not a party to violence or insurrection in Nigeria or any part thereof, but fundamental issues Mr. Asari Dokubo raised other than threat of insurrection or violence, are very appealing to us.
