Which way forward for the working people and youth of Nigeria?

Come hear about the struggle for a mass party of the working class and a socialist programme in Nigeria. Peluola Adewale of Socialist Party Nigeria, sister party of the Socialist Party in England and Wales, will be speaking at meetings across the country.

Despite enormous natural resources, for the big majority of Nigerians capitalism means misery. More than 90 million Nigerians live on less than $1.90 a day. By 2030, a quarter of the poorest people in the world will be Nigerian, according to the World Data Lab.

In this year's presidential elections, incumbent Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected - but with only 35% of the electorate voting. This reflects the deep-rooted anger at all of the 'moneybags' corrupt capitalist politicians.

In April, in the aftermath of the election, the government promised to increase the minimum wage. This still hasn't been implemented, despite the government striking a deal with the trade unions.

In recent years there has been a decline in workers' struggles, primarily because of frustration at the failure of the trade union leaders to give a serious lead.

However, Nigeria has a powerful working class, which many times has shown its potential to draw all the oppressed masses and youth behind it in struggle. Between 2001 and 2012, there were at least ten general strikes.

The Socialist Party of Nigeria is campaigning for a 24-hour general strike, to be seriously built for by the trade union leaders, demanding implementation of the minimum wage and ending casualisation of work.
