· A Clarion call for support for SPN to Fix Nigeria

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) cherishes the historic occasion of the collection of our certificate of registration from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in compliance with an order of the Federal High Court Abuja.

This was the culmination of a legal and political battle that lasted three and half years.

SOCIALIST PARTY OF NIGERIA CONDEMNS KILLINGS BY CRIMINAL HERDSMEN IN BENUE STATE AND ELSEWHERE

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) unequivocally condemns killings by criminal herdsmen in Benue State and elsewhere. We also condemn any reprisal as this, aside satisfying anger, will not resolve the real problem. We condemn the Buhari APC government and security operatives for their failure and cluelessness in the face of these rising killings and attacks by murderous herdsmen.

We call for immediate action to help defend those under attack and the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators and sponsors of these killings.

SPN WARNS THE BUHARI/APC GOVERNMENT AGAINST ANY ATTEMPT TO INCREASE FUEL PRICE

Calls on the labour movement to declare a 24-hour warning strike and mass protest

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) warns against any plan by the Buhari/APC government to increase pump price of petroleum products. Such an attempt must be resisted by the working masses and youth across the country.

DSM Support Workers' Strike in Osun State

•Aregbesola Government should pay full salaries and pensions to all workers and retirees
•All arrears of half-salaries and pensions plus gratuities must be paid.
•Promotion is a right, not a privilege
•Labour Leadership should call Congress of Workers now

The Democratic Socialist Movement supports the strike action declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress Osun state chapters. We fully support the struggle for immediate payment of full salaries and pensions to all categories of workers and retirees, plus payment of arrears among other demands. We make bold to say that the strike is long overdue, as workers and retirees have had to endure several months of denied salaries and pensions.

FUEL SCARCITY: Fixing the Oil Sector is not Rocket Science!

* Labour and the working masses should demand immediate repair of old refineries and building of new ones

* Fight for nationalization of the oil industry under democratic control and management

Once again, Nigeria is in the throes of fuel scarcity. This fuel crisis is turning to be a big problem for the Buhari/Osinbajo All Progressive Congress (APC) government as it is seriously robbing it of whatever credibility it has left. Now many people are beginning to call the regime “clueless” and “incompetent” – the very same adjectives used to describe the Jonathan PDP regime some two and half years back.

PERENNIAL FUEL SCARCITY AS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS UNABLE TO GUARANTEE SUPPLY

SPN DEMANDS NATIONALIZATION AND DEMOCRATIC MANAGEMENT OF THE OIL INDUSTRY AS THE WAY OUT OF THIS QUAGMIRE

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) condemns the federal government and the oil marketers/tycoons for failing to guarantee adequate supply of fuel and thereby causing untold hardship for the vast majority of Nigerians.

We challenge the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the United Labour Congress (ULC) to act fast to save the working and toiling people from the agony they are going through at the moment.

United they stand, divided they fall

South African ANC conference offers no way forward

After the most tumultuous run-up to any conference in ANC history, Dollar multimillionaire Cyril Ramaphosa has ascended to the presidency of the ANC after a bitterly fought factional contest against South African president Jacob Zuma. The so-called “radical economic transformation” faction and the business-aligned anti-corruption crusaders had fought each other all the way from the bottom to the top, in almost all provinces, continuing right up to the eve of conference.

Loss of N7.6 trillion in the Oil Industry Shocking

SPN Demands Recovery of the money and Nationalization of the Oil Industry under public democratic control and management

The December 13 revelation by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, that Nigeria lost a whopping N7.6 trillion ($21 billion) over the past 25 years to International Oil Companies (IOCs) is indeed shocking and bewildering. This is wholesale stealing of a nation’s natural resource which must not be swept under the carpet.

#EndSARS: MORE MASS PROTESTS AND DEMONSTRATIONS NEEDED UNTIL THE DEMANDS ARE WON

The Youth Rights Campaign (YRC) fully supports the ongoing campaign among Nigerians, especially young people, for the scrapping of the notorious Special Anti- Robbery Squad (SARS) division of the Nigerian Police Force. As far as we are concerned, SARS is not fighting crime. Rather it is an organization that engages in wholesale and systematic extortion, blackmail, torture and extra-judicial murder.

We equally applaud Nigerians who came out on Monday 11 December 2017 to demonstrate in some cities across the country. This movement needs to be built further. We therefore call for more and more nationwide mass protests and demonstrations until the government meets the demands.
