Members of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) with placards, banners and leaflets held protest actions in Lagos and Ibadan Wednesday, January 28, as parts of the activities in the campaign for the registration of the party. INEC, the national electoral commission, refused to register SPN despite it fulfilling all the legally stipulated requirements for the registration of a political party.

We of the Ogun State Chapter of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) support the Ogun State teachers in their ongoing strike action over unpaid salaries since November 2014. We strongly condemn the failure of the Ibikunle Amosun-led All Progressives' Congress (APC) government in the state to meet the very basic needs of workers such as prompt payment of their salaries.

NLC and TUC Should Name Appropriate Price and Begin Mass Mobilisation for its Actualisation
We of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) view the recent N10 reduction in the price of petrol from N97 per liter to N87 as cynical and tokenist. We support the positions of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress that the reduction does not reflect the fall in the price in the global oil market.

The bloody 4-day massacre in Baga, Nigeria, is a chilling reminder that as gory as Nigeria's security challenges may already be, there is actually no limit to how far things can degenerate. Initial accounts put the death toll at about 2,000 with 35,000 displaced. However, the Army has dismissed this figure as exaggeration. In an official statement the Army spokesperson General Chris Olukolade stated that the number of people killed including Boko Haram fighters "has so far not exceeded about 150". But whether 2000 or 150, this is an incredible loss of human life on a single day.

Elections have become a periodic ritual, mandated and made compulsory by law, at least to keep the pretence of the so called "civil rule" in motion. In 2015, there is a sharper division among the ruling elites who, despite current economic and social hardships, are turning to the poor working peoples for votes. Indeed, the 2015 general elections are taking place against the background of the past 16 years of civil rule which has meant nothing but worsening living conditions for the working masses.

For a Working People Political Alternative Now
Support the Struggle for the Registration of SPN
In preparation towards 2015 generation elections, different bourgeois politicians are seriously strategizing on how to hoodwink suffering masses so as to continue with the pillage of state treasury and collective wealth. Here in Abia state, the mass of people have never had it easy since the return of civil rule in 1999. Their situation has been from one frying pan to another as they keep on having one evil replacing another. From Governor Orji UzoKalu's two-term administration to the present government led by Theodore Ahamefula Orji, who will also be completing his second tenure in 2015, it has been a monumental failure of governance. The state of things in the state has been pitiable with no hope of improvement come 2015 general election. As it is the case nationally there is no genuine working peoples' alternative being offered ahead of the coming elections.
