The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Ondo State chapter has asked governor Rotimi Akeredolu to suspend his Senior Special Assistant on Special Duty, Dr Doyin Odebowale, for allegedly slapping a pregnant woman, Mrs Adeola Egbebi, at Oja Oba Market in Akure.

The NCL threatened to embark on a protest starting from Monday until the SSA is relieved of his position for slapping the woman, which caused her to slump.

This was disclosed in a letter to the governor signed by the Chairman, Oluwole Adeleye Sunday, and the Secretary, Shado F.K. SaharaReporters reports.

Reports say the pregnant woman, Egbebi, an environmental security guard, had collapsed on duty after the SSA slapped her at Oja Oba market in Akure.

The SSA was alleged to have slapped the woman for not standing to greet him like her other environmental colleagues.

Consequently, a protest was staged at the head office of the Ondo State Waste Management Board at Alagbaka as some environmental security guards shut down the gate for several hours.

The NLC in a letter addressed to the governor on Friday, OD/NLC/47/273 7th May 2021, titled, “Re: Slapping of a public servant by Dr Doyin Odebowale (SSA Special Duties)”, said there would be commencement of protests by Monday.

The NLC said, “Labour had last year written to your office on more than two occasions of the malfeasance and incorrigibility of Doyin Odebowale regarding his acclaimed working for Mr Governor against our members, tempered us and openly warned him against reoccurrence of his obnoxious behaviours.

“To our chagrin and disbelief, the “animal” in Doyin Odebowale yesterday (6th May 2021) reared its ugly head again when at the Erekesan Market, he inhumanly slapped a heavily pregnant woman by name Mrs Egbebi Adeola.

“With due respect and utmost regard for your office and person, we beg to say, enough is enough of Doyin Odebowale and his ignoble role in your government.

“We pray Your Excellency to immediately suspend Doyin Odebowale from office and set up a panel of inquiry to look into the matter to come up with appropriate sanctions if found guilty in the matter.

“To this end, Organised Labour shall commence immediate action to ensure that the ‘unwanted element’ is chased out of the office starting from Monday 10th May 2021.”
