Akanni blames politics for conflict
TAKING PART IN last week’s opposition organised Walk For Justice appears to have landed head of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) in trouble.
But said Akanni McDowall the latest attempt to remove him from the presidency of the NUPW is fuelled by politics and driven by past presidents and general secretaries.
“The sad thing is that I believe that this is being orchestrated by some past presidents and general secretaries driven by politics … I will not be deterred. I will continue to represent the rights of workers of this country,” McDowall told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday.
The health promotion officer in the Ministry of Health revealed that he was reliably informed there were now eight charges against him, one of which included taking part in Thursday’s Walk For Justice and shaking hands with Mia Mottley, Leader of the Opposition Barbados Labour Party. (AC)
