Geneva—The President-General of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria ( TUC), Comrade Peter Esele’s mother is dead.

News of her death was broken to the TUC president-General in Geneva yesterday that his mother, Mrs.  Victoria Ebosele, 58, had passed on.

Comrade Esele who is leading the TUC delegation to the 98th  International Labour Conference told Vanguard that  he got to know of his mother’s death through a text message from Nigeria on Monday morning, shortly after she passed on at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital.

Consequently, the union leader will cut short his stay in Geneva. Comrade Esele described his mother’s death as shocking saying, “I spoke to her on Friday and told her I would be back in a short while and would see her when I returned.”
