The Nigeria movement of solidarity with Cuba in conjunction with Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has announced the holding of the Sixth Continental Meeting of Solidarity with Cuba which will be held in Nigeria from September 23 to 25, 2019 at the Yar’adua International Conference Center, Abuja.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the group’s coordinator, Abiodun Aremu during a press conference in Abuja.

Aremu charged fellow Nigerians and Africans to join other prominent personalities, top government officials, diplomats, leaders of industry, professionals, workers, informal economy leaders and civil society organisations to attend the three-day conference which is premised on solidifying ties between other African countries, Latin America, and the diaspora including United States and United Kingdom.

He also noted that the conference and festival further strengthens the historic solidarity bonds between African continent and Cuba upon which thousands of construction workers, teachers and doctors have been sent to African countries including Nigeria.

The Cuban Ambassador, H.E. Carlos E. Trejo Sosa, in his speech noted the importance of increasing and reinforcing solidarity of African countries with Cuba in the current context of intervention and extreme aggressiveness of the government of the United States.

“What Cuba has at the moment is based upon the liberation put in our soil by Africans, and in any situation Cuba will be by the side of our African family since we share some ties with them and we are proud to have inherited from them.

Now we are being criticized and accused of human trafficking also of having soldiers in Venezuela by the American government who are our friends and we have nothing against them, they fought in the Cuban independence war which led to our independence in 1959 and we also fought in the American wars for years.

We have no bad conservation for our friends, all we are saying is leave Cuba alone to develop our country, let Cuba do what it has decide to do”, he said.

He added that there is need for the development of mutually advantageous economic cooperation between Cuba and Nigeria with health benefits attached.

“On that note we want to use our advancement and what we have achieved to collaborate and bring help to over 60 countries through our doctors and nurses sent to some countries in a bid to recover from diseases.

Cuba always stands by the side of Africa and now we are requesting that Africa stand by the side of Cuba, those who race now for Cuba are racing for humanity.

The blocade against Cuba is not only against Cuba but a blockade against ideas, political might which can’t make any country to benefit from the idea of liberation, he added.

The ambassador further reiterated the importance of the event as it is geared towards paying homage to the African ancestors of Cuba, the seeds of the Cuban nation which Africa forms a great part.

On developing economic interests for both countries, Carlos said there are proposed vaccines for early detection of diseases like diabetes and cancer projected to be tested in Nigeria soon thereby creating jobs for the scientists community.
