ACQUITTAL OF SARAKI BY CODE OF CONDUCT TRIBUNAL SHOWS THE LIMITATION OF CAPITALIST GOVERNMENT'S ANTI-CORRUPTION FIGHT

After a long trial, the Code of Conduct Tribunal delivered a ruling on the No-case submission of the Defence Counsel of Senate President Bukola Saraki, which struck out all the charges filed against him. This has drawn the ire of layers of working masses and youth who are horrified with the ruling.

RISING ETHNIC TENSION: Labour Must Act Urgently to Prevent Anarchy

Only a programme of struggle can unite working people and youth across sectarian divide

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) strongly condemns the 3-month ultimatum issued by a coalition of 16 so-called Northern youth groups to people of Igbo extraction to exit the North. This sort of sectarian and reactionary declaration is nothing but an open call for a pogrom.

Two Years of Buhari Government is a Failure and characterized by Mass Suffering

A call for a Mass Working Peoples' Party

This May 29 marks the second anniversary of Muhammadu Buhari-led government. For the working people, the last two years have been a monumental disaster wrought by the anti-poor capitalist policies of the government. So what the masses have bitterly experienced in the last two years are rising prices of goods and services far above their purchasing power, increasingly high costs of living in a country where the masses have to largely provide for themselves the basic necessities (education, health, housing, water, electricity, etc.), job losses and worsening poverty.

LAND GRAB IN JIGAWA STATE

DSM CALLS ON AFFECTED FARMERS TO CONTINUE STRUGGLE UNTIL VICTORY

THREAT TO STRIP OVER 100,000 PEASANTS OF THEIR SOURCE OF LIVELIHOOD

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM) Northern Nigeria Chapter strongly condemns the attempt to strip over 100,000 peasants/small scale farmers of their source of livelihood by a Chinese company, known as Lee Group, with connivance of the Jigawa state government. According to a report published in the Daily Trust on 20 May, 2017, the State Government has completed a deal to transfer 12,000 hectares of land to this Chinese company to establish sugarcane plantations against the will of the affected communities.

NIGERIA: IS A COUP IMMINENT?

A Warning to the Working Class

The recent claim by Nigeria's Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, to the effect that he has received information that "some individuals have been approaching some officers and soldiers for undisclosed political reasons", given the unfolding power struggle around President Muhammadu Buhari's ill-health, holds a sinister meaning. In the context of a heightening power struggle within the capitalist ruling elite over how and who replaces President Buhari in the event his illness does not permit him to complete his tenure or re-contest for second term by 2019, could the military intervene again?

Malabu Oil Block Fraud

SPN Demands Government takeover of OPL 245 and Nationalization of the Oil and Gas Industry under democratic management

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) hereby demands that government takes over Oil Prospecting License (OPL) 245 with immediate effect and runs the oil block as a public entity under democratic control and management for the good and benefit of the entire people of Nigeria. Not doing this would allow this highly lucrative oil field to fall into the hands of crooks of all shades who are now circling round to have a slice of the collective wealth of our people.

DSM Condemns the Communal Violence in Ile-Ife

We call for an independent and democratic public probe, and full compensation to all victims

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), Osun State Chapter, strongly condemns the wave of communal violence that swept through Ile-Ife earlier this month. This deadly violence which occurred between Yoruba and Hausa people has left in its wake enormous loss of live and propertie. In particular, we condemn the wanton killing, destruction of properties and looting that occurred in the town. We call on working and poor people of Ile-Ife, both indigenes and non-indigenes, to unite and act to stop the orgy of violence.

Militants Attacks on Lagos and Ogun Communities

Against Ethnic Division, for Working Class Unity across Ethnic and Religious Lines to Defend our Communities

This week armed attacks by suspected Niger Delta militants on Yoruba communities in Lagos and Ogun states, and the military’s response, have the potential to provoke ethnic reprisals and a bloody crisis. Attacks by those described by the media as militants have occurred in Ijebu-Mushin down to Igbo-Lomighun in Ikorodu. These militants appear to be made up of criminals and bunkerers who make a living from stealing oil by blowing pipelines that crisscross riverine communities in Ogun and Lagos states.

Hijab Crisis in Osun State: Avoidable Distraction caused by Aregbesola Government's Policies

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), Osun State Chapter, is greatly worried and concerned by the worsening dimension of the religious crisis in Osun State which is compounding the woes of the already crisis-ridden education sector.

This is, quite unfortunately, causing division among the ranks of the poor masses who should be united in opposition to the anti-peoples’ policies of the Aregbesola regime.
