The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has disclosed that it commiserated with the Nigerian workers on the occasion of this year’s May Day celebration.
This was contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR and made available to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
The full statement reads: “Ordinarily, it would be apposite for our Party, the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), to join other progressive and well-meaning Nigerians today in celebrating this year’s May Day (Workers’ Day) with the teeming multitude of Nigerian workers and working peoples. Alas! Given the dire straights which Nigerian workers have today found themselves, there is hardly any justification for such celebrations.
With inflation rate galloping at an alarming rate, lay-offs and retrenchments of workers in both the public and private sectors of the economy across the width and breadth of the land ever increasing, and with nation-wide insecurity rendering productive activity in agriculture and other sectors virtually impossible, there is literally little to cheer for the Nigerian Workers.
This blight which has befallen workers in Nigeria today is largely due to the incompetence, insensitivity and cluelessness of the leadership of the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) Government that has been imposed on the people of Nigeria at both federal and state levels of governance. Bereft of any ideas for moving the country forward and deficient of the requisite empathy and sensitivity to the plight of the masses whom they govern, these “emperors” go on lumping on citizens one burden after another, without a care in the world.
But, as they say, what goes up must come down. The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has always believed in the central role of workers, in particular, and the working masses, in general, in the material and social advancement of Nigeria and its National liberation. This is why it was the State Governments controlled by the PRP in Kano and Kaduna States that were the first in the entire Nigerian federation to declare May Day as a public holiday in honour of workers in 1980.
The PRP remains committed to the promotion of the welfare, security and collective interests of Nigerian workers. As the lynchpin and arrow-head of the struggle for the rebirth and material and social advancement of Nigeria’s workers, we urge the leadership of Nigeria’s workers to exploit all avenues for forging a broad front of all progressives and patriotic organisations in the country for the purposes of ousting the present visionless and insensitive ruling cabals from public office and setting in motion a truly progressive national agenda.
As always, the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) is ready to assume an active role in the formation and pursuit of the realisation of such a progressive National Front.
We wish Nigerian workers a solemn May Day anniversary. Victory is Certain.”

PRP: INEC Refuses to Witness Sule Bello’s Delegates Conference, Declares It Illegal
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared as illegal the purported 2nd National Delegates Conference held last Saturday by Sule Bello and his hoodlums in the Zaria town of Kaduna State.
The top management of the commission disclosed that invitation was extended to them by Sule Bello requesting them to witness the conference but they refused to honour the invitation considering the fact that the purported conference is nothing but an utter illegality.
The commission further revealed that to the best of its knowledge, Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR is the authentic National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
It could be recalled that Sule Bello had convened a conference that he tagged 2nd National Delegates Conference in Zaria last Saturday. The conference, which had few people in attendance, was not witnessed by INEC officials or any security agents.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been making it clear that Sule Bello is not the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party.
On its own part, the leadership of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) had stated that Sule Bello had never been a member or stakeholder of the party at any level or time.
Further checks by our correspondent at the INEC headquarters and its website had shown that Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR is the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) while Mr. Babatunde Francis Alli is the National Secretary of the party.
