President Yar'adua's Era: A new dawn for the masses?


1 May 2007

The Type Of Labour Leadership Needed In Post 2007 Elections

APPENDIX TWO

SOCIALIST DEMOCRACY MAY DAY 2007 SPECIAL EDITION

The two trade union federations in the country, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), have recently elected new leaderships. However, a more significant development is the resolve of the new leaderships of the two labour centers to establish a working relationship in pursuit of labour unity. To demonstrate commitment to this, the two federations have organised joint 2007 May Day rallies across the country. We of the Democratic socialist Movement (DSM) heartily welcome this development. We expect that this working relationship will be fully deployed to consistently defend the interests and rights of workers and poor masses in Nigeria. For the theme of this May Day, "Towards a new Agenda for Political and Socio-economic Transformation", to acquire true meaning and character, labour must take struggle to the arena of contest for political power to end the rein of anti-poor neo-liberal economic reforms of the outgoing and incoming governments.

2007 Elections: A Very Farcical Exercise

APPENDIX THREE

Decisive Action By Labour Needed Now!

On April 14, 2007, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), a federal government agency, conducted Governorship and State Assembly elections across Nigeria. The conduct of the said elections in most states of the federation totally failed to meet the basic requirement of an election, not even to talk of a free and fair election. Against this background, it is absolutely essential that action is taken to defend, extend democratic rights and to drive the election thieves and all looters from power.

The Niger Delta Quagmire:

APPENDIX FIVE

What We Think

The capitalist ruling class internationally and nationally is willy-nilly dragging the country into quagmire, a no-win war over the oil wealth of the Niger-Delta. A few days before publication, the estranged Vice President Abubakar Atiku disclosed the fact that the President Obasanjo government had approved the sum of $2 billion for arms to fight the growing insurgency of Niger Delta militant. Predictably, government spokespersons had promptly denied the veracity of Atiku's claim. But for those that know the real development in the Niger Delta this is nothing more than a clear, bold face, fraudulent denial.
