This article exposes the conditions of the workers at the farm owned by
Obasanjo, the ruler of Nigeria. Obasanjo is the "civilian" president of
Nigeria, who was in power in the past, but as a military dictator. He
is now in power as a so-called civilian.
A week-long general strike from 7th to 13th June 2000 took place in
Nigeria. It was in protest at the 50% increase in the price of fuel
announced by the government of President Obasanjo. The strike was
successful in forcing the government to drastically reduce the
announced increases. We publish an eyewitness report we received.
