The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) calls on all Nigerians who are fed up with the failures of the APC, PDP and other anti-poor parties and want a genuine and real change to join it en-masse. Unlike the APC, PDP and other ruling parties that stand for the interests of the privileged few, the SPN stands for the interests of workers, youth, farmers, artisans, unemployed and the downtrodden. Therefore if you want a genuine alternative, join the SPN and begin to build the party at your neighborhood, ward, local government area and state.
HOW TO JOIN THE SPN
To join the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) is very simple. Just take the following steps:
1. You can get membership form at SPN branch/state chapter nearest to you. Call any of the following numbers of party officials at the national secretariat (08098284000 and 07033697259) to get the contact of SPN officials in your area or state.
2. You can also download a membership form of the SPN on www.socialistpartyofnigeria.blogspot.com or send your e-mail address to any of the above numbers. Fill it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your submission will be acknowledged immediately and you will be issued a membership card afterwards at your branch or the state secretariat.
3. The form is free. However as a member, you are expected to pay a monthly membership fee/due (Student/Unemployed is minimum of N100 while it is a minimum of N200 for workers) subject to regular review by NEC. This together with regular fund raising, is your financial contribution to the growth of the party.
HOW IS THE SPN DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?
Ø SPN is a party of workers, the youth and the poor masses
Ø No money-bags and no god fathers. SPN is owned by all members and every member is a financier of the party through their monthly membership subscription and special donations/contributions.
Ø Your voice counts. SPN is fully democratic and all party decisions are taken after thorough discussions at all levels of the party starting from the ward.
Ø All public office holders elected on the platform of the SPN shall receive the salary of a skilled worker while the remainder shall be donated to the party to aid the struggles of workers, students, youth and community people. SPN does not believe that politicians should earn more than those they represent.
Ø SPN is not just an electoral machine. It is also a party of struggle. SPN shall support the daily struggles of workers, artisans, youth, students and the oppressed masses everywhere and everytime they break out because political power can either be won at the ballot box as well as at the barricade.
