McDowall goes to court
FIVE MONTHS AFTER being shunted from an acting appointment, the president of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Akanni McDowall, has filed a lawsuit against the Public Service Commission (PSC).
A dapperly dressed McDowall, accompanied by his lawyer Gregory Nicholls, appeared before Justice William Chandler yesterday in the No. 10 Supreme Court. The case was adjourned until March 31.
The trade unionist was removed from his acting position of health planning officer I last October, six weeks before his tenure was supposed to end. He reverted to his substantive post of environmental health assistant 1.
Speaking to the media shortly after exiting the Supreme Court, Nicholls said the matter had been filed in court only “a couple weeks ago”. (RB)
