When, in their political pamphlet, “The Communist Manifesto”, published in 1848, Karl Marx , and his intellectual soul mate, Friedrich Engels, made a clarion call: “Oh ye workers of all nations, unite”, it conveyed a message that resonates with the numerous groups of workers around the world. But I have been wondering if Nigerian workers were among of those, to whom the call was directed.

The German philosophers explained that workers first become conscious of sharing common grievances against owners of means of production – the capitalists . And, as time goes on, they’d decide to take things to the next level, by developing that self-consciousness, establishing a social-political movement that will counter the other class that it views as the oppressor who works against the interests of its members.

In 2007, some smart politicians, like a former Governor of Ondo State and former minister for housing and urban development, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, and the immediate past Governor of Edo State and now the Senator representing Edo North, saw these inherent strengths in the Labour Party, bought into it, and have benefited from that massive political asset.
