Governor Amosun's Action is a Mockery of Democracy
The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) condemns the forced closure of Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ogun, by the Ibikunle Amosun state government. We are equally opposed to the militarisation of the campus by the state government which was meant to demobilise the mass of students from organizing further planned mass actions against the fee hike.

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) welcomes the resolution of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held on August 16 in Enugu to “take control of Labour Party, and reposition it as a party with the ideals of labour and its ideological preference in order to make desirable impact in future elections.” We do this because we are absolutely convinced that labour must independently intervene in the 2015 elections to rally the working masses, the poor and genuine change seeking elements against the ruling class leading this country to disaster.

WE CONDEMN ATTACKS ON DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS
We of the Socialist Party of Nigeria condemn in the strongest terms the ban on public protests by the Borno State Police Command of the Nigerian Police. According to media reports, angry wives of soldiers in the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri on August 10 staged a protest against the deployment of their husbands to Gwoza with obsolete arms. It was reported that the top military command of the Division wanted a fresh set of soldiers to go to Gwoza and rescue the seized town from the Boko Haram terrorists who are holding sway in that part of the state.
