Bibliography

INTRODUCTION  

The role of the state in the socio-economic relations between the labouring masses and the owners of capital constitutes a source of concern to many scholars such as Marx, (1978); Nnoli (1986); Ekekwe (1986); Akpuru-Aja (1998) among others. 

 The source of concern is that the state constitutes an instrument in the hands of the owners of capital with which they subordinate the working class. Under this system, the processes of goods production caused workers to offer their labour power for sale at cheap and depraved rates in factories, mines and other establishments. 

Hence, Marx and his comrade and collaborator, Engels, admonished as follows: “Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains” (Communist Manifesto, 1848:1). This call was based on the enormity of the task before workers in the struggle between labour and capital, not just within the work place, but, also in the general class struggle to overthrow the yoke of capital.
