DSM Condemns the Communal Violence in Ile-Ife

We call for an independent and democratic public probe, and full compensation to all victims

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), Osun State Chapter, strongly condemns the wave of communal violence that swept through Ile-Ife earlier this month. This deadly violence which occurred between Yoruba and Hausa people has left in its wake enormous loss of live and propertie. In particular, we condemn the wanton killing, destruction of properties and looting that occurred in the town. We call on working and poor people of Ile-Ife, both indigenes and non-indigenes, to unite and act to stop the orgy of violence.

Militants Attacks on Lagos and Ogun Communities

Against Ethnic Division, for Working Class Unity across Ethnic and Religious Lines to Defend our Communities

This week armed attacks by suspected Niger Delta militants on Yoruba communities in Lagos and Ogun states, and the military’s response, have the potential to provoke ethnic reprisals and a bloody crisis. Attacks by those described by the media as militants have occurred in Ijebu-Mushin down to Igbo-Lomighun in Ikorodu. These militants appear to be made up of criminals and bunkerers who make a living from stealing oil by blowing pipelines that crisscross riverine communities in Ogun and Lagos states.

Hijab Crisis in Osun State: Avoidable Distraction caused by Aregbesola Government's Policies

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), Osun State Chapter, is greatly worried and concerned by the worsening dimension of the religious crisis in Osun State which is compounding the woes of the already crisis-ridden education sector.

This is, quite unfortunately, causing division among the ranks of the poor masses who should be united in opposition to the anti-peoples’ policies of the Aregbesola regime.

NIGERIA ON THE CLIFF EDGE, ONLY SOCIALIST POLICIES CAN GET IT OUT OF THE WOODS

SPN Press Conference

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) considers it imperative to examine and analyze the Buhari/APC government's first year of its so-called change agenda and the impact on the working class and poor masses.

We have to begin by stating a fact which has now become undisputable, which is that the condition of living for the vast majority of Nigerians has become increasingly difficult especially as the rising cost of living is increasing poverty.

AS ENERGY CRISIS DRIVES NIGERIA TO ANOTHER BRINK, LABOUR SHOULD WAKE FROM SLUMBER

Times are Harder; Working People and the poor are Suffering!

Nigeria has continued to be gripped – yet again – by acute fuel scarcity. The simultaneous collapse of the already scandalously poor public power supply system - leading in most parts of the country to near zero supply of electricity means that the energy crisis is hydra-headed. And the effect is telling hard on all - the urban and rural poor, the petty traders and artisans, the industrial workers, the professionals, the market men and women, the middle class etc.

Buhari 2016 Budget: Not a Real Change

With Nigeria groaning under the dead weight of global capitalist crisis which is symptomized by the lowest oil price in 12 years, the 2016 budget appears to have arrived in coma.The oil price has plunged from $116 in July 2014 to less than $30 in January 2016. In addition, doomsday prediction that price could further slide to $20 now appears more likely than ever. However, at N6.08trillion proposed expenditure, this is the biggest budget in Nigeria’s history. It is even bigger than all the previous budgets at periods of high oil prices.

LASIEC MUST OBEY THE COURT ORDER FOR THE CONDUCT OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS IN LAGOS STATE

We of the Lagos State Chapter of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) welcome the recent court judgment granted by the Lagos State High Court ordering the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) to conduct local government elections in Lagos State without delay. The case was instituted by the National Conscience Party (NCP). We believe that the court order is a judicial victory in all respects for the mass of the working people in Lagos State who have been denied the opportunity of democratically electing their desired candidates into the local governments in Lagos State.

PRESS STATEMENT

WORKING PEOPLE MUST PREPARE TO DEFEND THEIR LIVING CONDITIONS

We of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) call on the mass of the working people to prepare to resist any attempt to make them pay for the current crisis of capitalism. We make this call based on the admissions of the President Muhammadu Buhari himself that the Nigerian economy is experiencing harsh times on the basis of global economic crisis. This is reinforced by the sharp fall in crude oil prices which made the 2016 budget to be set at a benchmark price of $38 per barrel. Indeed, there is now a possibility that crude oil price would be lower than the budget benchmark.
