THE PRESIDENT of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has been sent packing back to his substantive job within the public sector.

Akanni McDowall, who has been acting as a health promotion officer within the Ministry of Health for the past two years, will be returning to his old job as an environmental health assistant – a junior position.

“Anything can happen once you’re standing up for the rights of workers,” McDowall said yesterday, adding, “I’ll not be deterred.”
