TRADE UNION CONGRESS OF NIGERIA MESSAGE OF SOLIDARITY TO BOLIVARIAN PEOPLE
We bring you fraternal greetings from the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC).
The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), under the leadership of its President Comrade Quadri A. Olaleye frowns at the latest failed invasion of Venezuela by the mercenary forces of the US imperialism in collaboration with the Colombian authority.
Information reaching Congress confirms that the sponsored group used the Colombia territory by the sea at La Guaira state to unleash the terrorist attacks , but were promptly intercepted and defeated by the Bolivarian armed forces . Some of the mercenaries were said to have been arrested, detained and their weapons seized on Sunday 3rd May, 2020.
We condemn in its entirety this aggression and we say with emphasis that it is uncalled for.
Nigerian Workers maintain our unshakable solidarity with the working people and the Citizens of Venezuela.
We believe an injury to any worker in Venezuela translates to an injury to workers in Nigeria and everywhere in the world
Finally, Congress wishes to call on President Trump to put an end to the blockade of Venezuela now, and allow their right of sovereignty to prevail.
Comrade Quadri A. Olaleye, FCIA, MNIM
Comrade (Barr.) Musa Lawal M. Ozigi, mni
Secretary General, TUC
