NLC DELEGATES' CONFERENCE OUTCOME TRIGGERS SPLIT IN THE TRADE UNION MOVEMENT

BUILDING A FIGHTING AND DEMOCRATIC TRADE UNIONISM IS THE ONLY WAY TO HALT GROWING DEGENERACY

Many trade unionists and workers and change-seeking elements will look with dismay at the divisions that have opened within the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), particularly as they appear to be based on personalities rather than a genuine debate for which way forward for Labour.

In 2013, the “Ejigbo Sodomy” case hallmarked the gender inequality and the unspeakable violence the female gender experience in a patriarchal Nigeria.

SPN Condemns Granting of Life Pensions to Presidents and others

* We call on Labour Movement to Mobilize for Mass Actions against this Robbery

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) condemns the recent passage into the constitutional amendment the granting of life pensions for Presidents, Vice President, Senate Presidents and House of Representatives Speakers by the National Assembly.

It is absolutely immoral and wicked of National Assembly whose members claim to be the elected representatives of the common people to defraud the nation by committing public resources to the already rich few. Currently, Nigerian politicians, and especially National Assembly members, are the highest paid in the world. It is clear that the insatiable quest of politicians to loot the better part of the nation's wealth is not quenched by the outrageous amount politicians award for themselves at all levels, thus the new attempt to give politicians who occupied key positions permanent wages, even after they have left offices.
