The Nigerian Movement for the Liberation of Western Sahara on behalf of millions of Nigerians is demanding that Morocco quits Western Sahara and allow the complete decolonization of the territory.
The movement is also demanding that the UN formally resolves the Western Sahara question by ensuring the complete decolonization of the territory.
The President of the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic, SADR (Western Sahara) His Excellency Brahim Ghali at the Solidarity Reception at the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Thursday, 13th June, 2019.
“ The UN classifies Morocco’s gross violation of the rights of the Sharawi including their journalists and human rights campaigners, as crimes against humanity and takes appropriate measures to bring the perpetrators to book.”
“European Union cease their collaboration with Morocco in stealing the resources of Western Sahara including its fishes and minerals.”
The union is also urging President Mohammadu Buhari, under whose leadership in 1984 Nigeria recognized the independence of Western Sahara, to remain on the side of history by firmly standing by the Sharawi people, and let the Morocco know in no uncertain terms that Nigeria stands by the principles of fairness and justice for all human beings.
” Nigeria must continue in its time-honoured tradition of being our brother’s keeper like we did in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa.”
Similarly the union also express its solidarity with the people of Venezuela and Cuba because they have a right to sovereignty.
“We also identify with the Palestinians because like the Israelis, they have a right to a homeland and to live in peace.
Our solidarity with these peoples are based on the teachings of Brother Malcolm X who declared: “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
