Socialist Workers League demand for Revolution in Nigeria

This is the transcript of the Press release issued by Nigerian group, Socialist Workers League.
“NO TO FUEL PRICE INCREASE!
Dare to struggle! Dare to win!

The Federal Government beats a temporary retreat on the implementation of its so-called removal of oil “subsidy”, shifting it from January 1 to April 1, 2012. This is a testament to people’s power! The government could feel the mass anger that was gathering momentum to erupt with the New Year. It is however still hell bent on pursuing this anti-people’s policy and we must be unshaken in our resolve to RESIST!

It is obvious there is no subsidy on petrol. What government simply seeks to achieve is to increase petrol price and provide conducive environment for the operation of private refineries. Consider the following facts: 445,000 barrels of crude oil are reserved for refining for domestic consumption. Currently, only 170, 000 barrels of crude oil per day are refined internally while the balance of 275,000 is sold for refining externally and the products imported. When all costs and allowable profit margins are considered, experts have shown that the selling price of petrol/litre (from the crude oil refined internally) should not be more than N34 but it is sold at N65/litre. So, where is the subsidy? As for the imported petrol from the quantity sold or exchanged in trade by barter externally, the landing cost claimed by government (N140/litre) is less than the proceeds realized from sale (N184/litre). This is because the minimum price at which a barrel of crude oil has been sold and the projected minimum price of crude oil per barrel is $90/barrel. A refined barrel of crude oil gives 78 litres of petrol, apart from other quantities of kerosene, diesel, etc. This means proceeds from a litre of petrol is $1.15 or N184, at the exchange rate of $1=N160 ($90 divided by 78).

There is no justifiable reason why we must pay even up to N65 per litre for petrol, being the sixth largest crude oil producer in the world and number one in Africa, when the average rate of petrol per lire in other oil producing countries is just N34. In many countries, it is even much less than this average with a litre of petrol in Brazil and Venezuela for example costing just N4.50 & N5.00 respectively, despite higher workers’ wages.

The issue actually goes beyond whether or not there is a subsidy at the current rate of N65 per litre of petrol. The capitalist rulers want to make us pay for the crisis of their exploitative system. Increasing fuel pump prices, deregulation and privatisation are ways by which the capitalist ruling class wants to make working people & the poor to pay for the crisis of capitalism. We must RESIST all of this. The first “key fact about subsidy” according to Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the World Bank’s unofficial Prime Minister for Nigeria is that whereas prices of petroleum products ought to be fixed by the forces of demand and supply, they are fixed arbitrarily by government. But the supposedly objective law of demand and supply is a big lie! The “free” market is a figment of their imagination! Corporations and governments, in defence of capitalism, have been using their political power to ensure that profits(and supernormal profits) are maximised.

Curiously, the FGN, which is a government of the rich, claims that it is a cartel of the wealthy that benefits from the current “subsidy” and it is so concerned about the poor that it wants to save N1.3trillion to better our lot. The first logical action government should take is to arrest and prosecute members of the cartel. But government considers them ‘untouchable’ while the masses are ‘touchable’! The masses know that any increase on the price of fuel will lead to increases in the prices of other goods and services, thus compounding pervasive poverty. The place to start with saving funds for development should be by reducing income inequality. Mr Sanusi Lamido, the CBN Governor had earlier informed the nation that the Federal legislators alone consume 25% of total national recurrent expenditure. If you add this to the amounts appropriated for the executive, which include so many redundant “advisers” & “assistants”, not to talk of corrupt enrichment through the contract system, the few political office holders enjoy a large chunk of the entire national budget. No public office serving us should earn more than the average wage of workers!

All over the world, working people are rising to fight back against capitalism, deregulation and privatisation. Resistance and revolution have defined 2011 and will further stamp the way forward in 2012. To bring an end to our continued exploitation and oppression, we must emancipate ourselves by overthrowing the anti-people capitalist system and building a socialist society based on mass action and cooperation, in solidarity with working people across the world.

Dare to struggle, dare to win! Workers and youths; unite and fight! For revolution from below!

  1. THE EVIL “NEO-IMPERIALIST” PLOT OF LUCIFER’S WORSHIPERS AGAINST AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND THEIR RESOURCES

    Sorry: Let us speak instead about the insane “current massacres”, in Nigeria and Africa, and Who is Orchestrating them from ‘behind the curtains’, please.

    THE DECEIVED AND NANIPULATED PEOPLES OF AFRICA,

    The Nigerian Leader/ Jonathan Goodluck’s ‘Minds-Moving’ phrase: “One of the BURDENS as a Nation we HAVE TO CARRY”, on the Obscure Explosions and Shootings, could be bearing a ‘fantastic hint’ about the “Hidden Forcedness”, which he and his government members Are Secretly Suffering From, and which makes them feel Defenseless and Unmovable in face of the Ruthless Attacks On Their Country and Its Inhabitants !!! Of Course, they wouldn’t be normally expected to feel compelled to Surrender/Succumb to the Propaganda-Donated ‘Virtual-Boko’, SO FAST AND SO EASY !!! AND THAT IS UNLESS the ‘Virtual-Boko’, or in-fact its Real On-Ground-And-In-Air Entity, Is Actually A ‘Representative’ Of A Planetary-Super-Power !!! A Really-Big-Power like the One whose high officials are frequently and repeatedly being seen ‘holding-on’ to Jonathan Goodluck’s Ears, to a strange extent lately !!!

    In this case: THANK YOU AND ‘GOOD LUCK’, MISTER/ “GOODLUCK”, AGAINST AFRICA’S SAVAGE AND GREEDY “SUPER-ENEMIES” !!!

    PEOPLES OF AFRICA,

    THE “SUPER-POWER” WAR OF DECEPTION AND MANIPULATION, THAT IS COLONIZINGLY WAGED AGAINST YOU AND ‘ALL’ YOUR COUNTRIES, IS HEATING-UP AND ESCALATING !!! SEE HERE HOW A PRESIDENT OF A SAVAGELY-STRICKEN AFRICAN NATION IS SUMMONED TO THE “NEW-WORLD-ORDER-CAPITAL”, WHICH IS ALSO THE “GLOBAL-BLOODSHEDDING-CAPITAL”, TO INSURE THE INSTANT SURRENDERING OF HIS REGIME AND THE NEAR SUCCUMBING OF HIS FOLKS, TO FOLLOW AFTER THE NEXT WAVE OF “TOP-LEVEL-COORDINATED” MILITARY ATTACKS, ON HIS COUNTRY AND ITS INHABITANTS AND THEIR STRUCTURES AND BELONGINGS, FROM AIR AND FROM GROUND !!!!

    READ THIS PLEASE : ” U.S. President Barack Obama welcomes Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan to the White House Wednesday, one day after Jonathan addressed a United Nations conference on AIDS held in New York.

    The White House says the two presidents will discuss regional and global developments, and work at deepening their countries’ relationship.

    On Tuesday, Jonathan called for a “final solution” to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which has now raged for 30 years.

    He said that as the largest contributor to peacekeeping in Africa, Nigeria has a “major stake” in ensuring that its armed forces are protected against HIV and AIDS, and are given adequate treatment. ”.

    So after 30 years of Killing Equatorial Africans With The Military-Laboratories-Made HIV/AIDS SECRET WEAPON, THE PENTAGON-BUTCHERS DID NOT YET DECIDE ON STOPING THE THREE-DECADES-LONG MASSACRE !!! — Who Knows, Maybe They Would Accept To Substitute The Quite ‘Boring’ Viral/Bacterial Killings With The More ‘Exciting’ Killings And Smashings That Are Performed In Nigeria With The Drone-Planes/Smart-Bombs Of The U.S.A.F., And The Bullet-Snippings/Grenade-Throwings Of The Militias Of S.W.A.T., Blackwater, Halliburton. …etc., Who Knows !!!!

    But For What Reason Should The African Nations Let The Feelings Of Disgrace Cripple Their Active Abilities, Which By Them They Could Energetically Stand-Up To Bravely Face The Super-Imposed Events, AND MAYBE ALSO SWIFTLY DEFEAT THE “NEO-IMPERIALIST SHADOW DOERS” !!

    When, say, a dishonest goldsmith whom you have previously trusted sells you a gold-plated bracelet, at a time he meanly has managed to convince you that it is of solid-gold, .. then should this shame you in any way? Despite it was you who got deceived and manipulated, the shame is on the Tricking Seller, and not on you as a Tricked Buyer. Right?

    So What Is Needed Of You Now, AFRICAN PEOPLES, And Urgently, Is Not To Feel ‘Inertly’ Ashamed Because You Have Been Deceived And Manipulated By A “GLOBAL SUPER-POWER”, But To Start Relying On God And Start Exposing The REAL Identities Of Those Who Are Crushing And Colonizing Your Countries, And Sinning As Such Against You On The Military, The Economy And The Politics Levels, SIMULTANIOUSLY !!!

    And remember that we HAVE TO CONCENTRATE AND COOPERATE TO SAVE MILLIONS OF INNOCENT AFRICAN PEOPLES, FROM THE BUTCHERY OF A DEVIL-WORSHIPING MAJOR MILITARY POWER.

    You All have to become aware, and this hour and this minute, that for Tens of Years There Had Been, And There Still Are, Secret-Gangs Of The Most Degraded Kind Of Humanity, like “The Illuminati” and “The Bilderberg” and “The Club Of Rome”, who plan, train, work, and spend, to Inaugurate A Satanic “World State”, in which the Good Laws And Orders Of God Are Not Respected And Not In Effect. They want an Evil Anarchic “Global State” where they can ‘SWIM IN AN OCEAN OF SINS’. Their Un-Restricted-Ethically “THINK-TANKS” had produced Some Tremendously Heavy Bulk Of Literature on their Horrendous ways and Frightening goals. In addition to their so-called Scientific Research Papers and Conference Entry-Files and ‘Studies’ of the Alleged “Non-Governmental Organizations”, there are also many Published-To-People Books, and of these you can find some famous ones, that were masqueradingly moulded into the forms of ‘Science-Fiction’ Novels, like : “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, “Brave New World” and “Fahrenheit 451″. Nowadays there are many ‘Lecturers’, and sometimes ‘Screamers’, on the utterly risky and threatening subject, like : Senator/ Ron Paul, Lord/ Christopher Monckton, Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, … etc. They warn us against very bad plots of the “ELITE-GLOBALISTS”, and their related Major Crimes, but this doesn’t mean that all those seemingly Anti-New-World-Order ‘Lecturers’ and ‘Screamers’, are Totally On Our Side, in Africa and the Third-World in general. Such First-World ‘Thinkers’ usually have their “Agendas” too.

    There are current plans that are set for so many African Countries, to Destroy their Independence and then “Annex” them one by one into the emerging Evil, Rogue, Tyrrannical And Oligarchy-Run ‘Global Empire’. Get A Clear Picture by becoming well-informed from the tongues of Northern Africans About What Is Actually On-Going Now To Their Countries, And Not From the Externally-Controlled Official Media of these Mediterranean countries. NIGERIAN SOILS AND THEIR OIL AND OIL-REFINERIES AND OIL-EXPORTING SEA-PORTS are, of course, Not Exempted from the dark-plots of the “Free-Masonic” Lucifer-Followers, And That’s Why Nigerians Should Start To Expose Their Enemies Greedy Ambitions Right Away. Waiting For Long Before Acting May Drag NIGERIA, AND HER NEIGHBOURS, TO THE FATE THAT HAD AWAITED AND CLASPED NOW EGYPT, LIBYA, SUDAAN, … etc.

  2. Said says:

    I support ypu comrades! And it’s very good that you enlight the masses on what have been happening in this country. But, I don’t think Nigerians are ready for this emancipation,because must of them are not been to school! So, anything good is carried out by a learned people.
