According to the aggrieved nurses, Odunoye allegedly threatened to deal with anyone that does not make the contribution, as she allegedly instructed heads of primary health centres in the LGA to compile the names of defaulters.
The nurses were reportedly mandated to pay the N20,000 between October and November 2021, as the senior officer has been scheduled to retire in January 2022.
One of the affected nurses said that she was afraid that her job could be under threat.
She said, “Alimosho has a lot of primary health centres. The Apex Director, Kudirat Odunoye, who heads directorates in all the primary health centres in the area, is compelling all nurses to pay N20,000 for her send-off ceremony.
“We have been mandated to pay the money between October and November and she has threatened to deal with any nurse that does not pay the money. She made the threat at a meeting and requested the name of any nurse that refuses to pay. The demand is fraudulent; it is oppressive.”
Another nurse urged the state government to intervene, as some nurses have started paying the money out of fear.
