President of the Nigeria Labour Congress said yesterday that everyone should be worried that the war in Ukraine almost brought the world to the doorsteps of a nuclear winter.
He noted that currently, the global food and energy supply chain had been severely serrated by the war leading to hyper-inflation, hunger and destitution in many countries.
Wabba, who spoke on the ongoing 110 International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, noted that workers and their families suffer most during senseless wars like that of Russia and Ukraine.
He said: “As we converge in Geneva, we are inundated with the echoes of war. The horrendous aggression by Russia against Ukraine has turned about 7 million Ukrainians into refugees, maimed and killed thousands more.
“We should be worried that the war in Ukraine almost brought the world to the doorsteps of a nuclear winter. Currently, the global food and energy supply chain has been severely serrated by this war leading to hyper-inflation, hunger and destitution in many countries. It is workers and their families that suffer most during senseless wars like this.
“The working people of the world unequivocally denounce the ongoing human tragedy in Ukraine. We stand in solidarity with the workers and people of Ukraine. We demand a stop to the aggression now. We implore Russia to embrace dialogue.
“The opening statements of the Director General of the ILO sum it up – ‘those who resort to war deny social justice”. I must add that ‘those who choose war admit and advertise the failure of their humanity.’ Succinctly put, ‘Wars in the 21st century mock any claim to grand milestones in civilisation.”
