NLC Expresses Shock at the Sudden Demise of NECA DG, Timothy Olawale

The foremost Labour Centre in Nigeria, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it received the news of the sudden demise of the Director-General of the Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA), Dr. Timothy Olawale,
yesterday, 1st October 2021 in Abuja.


Dr. Timothy Olawale was in 2019 confirmed as the Director-General of NECA. His succession of Mr. Segun Oshinowo was greeted with great warmth by the social partners as many saw his emergence as as a continuation of a tradition of experience and excellence. 
He slumped in Abuja during a board meeting and was later pronounced dead.


A statement signed by the President of NLC, Ayuba Wabba, said, "While in the saddle, Dr. Olawale demonstrated a high level of professionalism and camadarie with other social partners especially 
labour. He was always very objective in dealing with matters of industrial relations as his work ethos were justice and equity. 
Dr. Timothy Olawale was a great friend of the Nigeria Labour Congress. 


"He was a dependable social partner to Nigerian workers. It is really quite eerie to describe Dr. Olawale in past tense. He will be greatly missed. His humility, kindness and candour will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to have worked closely with him.


"On behalf of the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the wife, children, relatives, colleagues and friends that Dr. Timothy Olawale left behind. 
We also convey our condolences to the leadership and staff of the Nigeria Employers Consultative Association for this irreparable loss." the statement concluded.
