Only Working Masses' Solidarity and Struggle can prevent Catastrophe
Four years after the United Nations (UN) and French army cobbled together a quasi-democratic government under Alassane Ouattara following a 2011 post-election civil war; there is renewed fear that anotherpresidential election scheduled for October might trigger violent crisis.

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), Ogun State chapter, joins the Ogun State chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to call on the Ogun State government to accede to the demands of Ogun State workers by remitting about sixty months’ pensions deductions of their salaries. We hold that the revelation of the unremitted pensions’ deductions by the NLC Ogun State punctures the boastful claims of the APC-led Ogun State government that it is completely clean of unremitted deductions of workers’ pensions and unpaid salaries.

"I will like to remind you all," said Buhari, "that we are continuing in major privatization programme with sectors ranging from telecommunication, energy, gas, solid minerals, aviation, health and infrastructure development but with improved moral architecture."
