2019 POLL: SPN DISSOCIATES ITSELF FROM ANY COALITION FORMED BY PDP AND 41 CAPITALIST POLITICAL PARTIES
*No government formed on the basis of capitalist philosophy is capable of offering any breakthrough for the poor masses
The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) hereby disclaims the report in the Vanguard Newspaper on Saturday July 7, that it was among the 41 pro-capitalist political parties, led by the anti-poor People Democratic Party (PDP), in a coalition aimed at producing a consensus candidate to dislodge from power the inglorious regime of the Muhammadu Buhari/APC-led federal government come 2019 election.

A Rancorous First Term
If nothing goes wrong at the last minute, the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) will hold its first national convention since the 2015 general elections on Saturday 23rd June 2018. But unlike the 2014 convention held in a condition of hope and enthusiasm, this convention is holding at a period of widespread popular disappointment in the government, bitter factional fighting within the ruling party and feverish re-alignment by competing sections of the capitalist ruling elite amid fears about the party's chances in next year's general elections.
For most Nigerians, struggling with daily life, the APC convention will seem a different world. Almost inevitably the convention will see many promises being made in an effort to galvanise support, but these will be met by great scepticism after the experience of the Buhari administration. Nevertheless what happens at the convention will impact on the coming months in Nigeria.

By H.T. Soweto
At the moment, all genuine change-seeking elements agree that unless a viable political alternative is presented, any faction of the decadent capitalist ruling elite that wins the 2019 presidential elections will spell further doom for the already traumatized working and toiling masses. This is predicated on the experience of the brutal 16-year rule of the PDP as well as the traumatizing and, for many, deeply disappointing three year rule of the Buhari/Osibanjo APC administration.
