Let Civil Servants Exercise their Fundamental and Democratic Rights – SPN Tells Oyo State Govt

ajimobi1Oyo State chapter of the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) has called on the government of Senator Abiola Ajimobi to reverse “its earlier decision to sack any of the newly recruited administrative and social welfare officers, as well as other public civil servants in the state who may be interested, either now or in future, in forming or belonging to any political party of their choice.”

The SPN, in press release signed by its secretary in the state, Bamigboye Abiodun, said the statement was credited to the Head of Service, Alhaji Tajudeen Aremu, who represented the governor at a three-day induction course for the newly recruited administrative and social welfare officers into the state civil service, to immediately sack any of the newly recruited employees who is caught hobnobbing with politicians.

According to Abiodun, “the SPN absolutely frowns at this statement as it represents a continuous attempt by the ACN-led government in the state to further the intimidation which every successive capitalist party-led government in the state often carries out against civil servants, preventing them from exercising their fundamental and democratic human right to freedom of association and lawful assembly as guaranteed in the Section 40 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FGN).”

The party therefore called on “workers, students, unemployed youths and artisans among others in Oyo State to join us and let us build a genuine socialist alternative to the vicious cycle of misery and nightmare of current iniquitous, anti-poor capitalist system being represented and defended by Ajimobi/ACN-led government, as well as other capitalist governments across the country.”
