HALT THE SLIDE TO FASTER ETHNO-RELIGIOUS CRISIS
We of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) condemn in strongest terms the terror attack that occurred in Kaduna and Kano on July 23rd and 24th, 2014 respectively.

The Kano attack equally claimed scores of lives and took place within the Sabon Gari district of the city, which is a settlement of non-indigenes, who are mostly southerners.

The PDP's candidate is IyiolaOmisore. Some other contestants are Fatai Akinbade, a former PDP stalwart and former secretary of the ousted Oyinlola government, who is contesting on the platform of Labour Party and Mr. Segun Akinwusi, a former head of service contesting under Social Democratic Party (SDP.
