WORKERS AND COMMUNITY PEOPLE ARISE!

Say No To Fuel Scarcity, Planned Fuel Price Hike, Reduction In Workers Salary, Electricity Tariff Hike And Crazy Bills

Enough is enough. It is time to stop simply complaining. It is time to start to fight back. This is why we of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) call on the mass of working people and youth to resist with mass actions all forms of socio-economic attacks on their living conditions. We hold that the current protracted fuel scarcity is just the latest of such attacks and should be resisted with mass actions organized by working people and youth in the neighborhoods and communities.
