Ivory Coast: Perched on a Precipice

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.

BUHARI GOVERNMENT AND THE WORKING MASSES

By Ayo Ademiluyi

A lot of hopes, which were in fact illusions, attended the electoral campaign of Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives' Congress and his subsequent inauguration as President of Nigeria. This is based on the fact that the electoral victory in itself is an historical event with the coming into power, for the first time, of an opposition candidate as President of Nigeria alongside the ousting of the discredited Jonathan regime.

BUHARI'S CONTINUATION OF PRIVATISATION PROGRAM WILL WORSEN THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY

By Chinedu Bosah

"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."
