Actress Nikki Valdez gave her message to ABS-CBN employees who may lose their jobs after Congress fails to provide the network with a new franchise.

On Instagram, Nikki shared a sad picture of her husband, Luis Garcia, who is also an ABS-CBN employee who said he could lose his job in the coming months.

The network earlier announced that it would have to let go of employees in August after the House of Representatives denied its new 25-year franchise application.

Nikki also criticized those who said that the employees who will lose their jobs to simply find another one and those who are celebrating the failure of the workers.

“Madali lang para sa inyo na sabihin na hindi lang naman sa amin nangyari o nangyayari ito. Na maghanap na lang kami ng ibang trabaho. Na huwag kami mag-over-react. Na kumpanya namin ang may kasalanan. Na buti nga sa ABS-CBN magsasara na. ‘Yung iba nga nagdidiwang pa,” said Nikki.

“Sana kaya niyong sabihin ‘yan sa mga empleyadong sila lang ang inaasahan ng pamilya nila, na may mga sinusuportahan, pinag-aaral, ‘yung iba buntis pa at may pinapagamot na kamag-anak. Sana kaya niyo sagutin ang lahat ng gastusin nila at kinabukasan ng mga pamilya nila,” she added.

According to Nikki, she dedicated her post to 70 lawmakers who voted to kill the bill that aims to provide a new franchise to the Kapamilya network.

In the congressional vote that took place on Friday, only 11 lawmakers dared to vote to give ABS-CBN another chance.

“Kaya para po sa inyo ang post na ito para paalala sa mga tuwang-tuwa nagsara kami, sa 70 kongresistang bumoto sa pag-deny ng aming prangkisa at sa gobyerno nating puno ng galit at paghihiganti lang ang nasa isip at puso sa gitna ng magulo nang mundo at pandemya na dinaranas ng ating bansa,” said Nikki.

Mensahe naman ni Nikki sa kanyang mga kapwa-Kapamilya: “Kapamilya, kapit lang. Tiwala lang. Ang Diyos ay pinagdudahan, inalipusta, binaboy at tinalikuran din ng maraming nagtiwala Sakanya kaya alam na alam Niya ang pinagdadaanan nating lahat ngayon. Hindi mananaig ang kasamaan kahit kailanman.” she said.

Nikki Valdez is part of the series “A Soldier’s Heart,” which is now airing on Kapamilya Channel.
