The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) Ogun State Chapter condemns the abandonment of dumped garbage on roads and streets in major towns and cities in the state by the refuse collectors under the Ministry of Environment. The situation in Ijebu Ode, which has now become a huge refuse dump site, is particularly pathetic. Sadly, there seems to be complete absence of government in Ijebu Ode.

Residents Hold Protest March against Poor Electricity Supply and Exploitation
No light, No payment! No light, No disconnection!
It is no news that the electricity supply crisis has jumped out of the frying pan into the fire since the private firms called GENCO’s and DISCO’s took over the PHCN. It was bad enough under the PHCN but the situation has gone much worse under the private companies which are busy disbursing darkness but reaping billions as profit.

We in the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) condemn in strongest terms the attack by the Boko Haram terrorist group on the Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe state. We join the millions of the working masses in the country to voice indignation and outrage against this carnage. According to media reports, the death toll has risen to 59. However this, and the subsequent savage attacks in Mainok, Mfaka and Jakana, raise a big question on the effectiveness of military expedition of Jonathan regime in the region ostensibly against terrorism.

No illusions in Sanusi or Jonathan, working masses' organizations must mobilise mass resistance against all sections of the looting elite
We in the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) regard the suspension of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as Central Bank Governor by President Goodluck Jonathan as a grand plan to cover the tracks of his government on the alleged missing $20 billion oil revenue.
