Kaduna Electric sacks staff for fraud, indiscipline

Alexander Davis

Kaduna Electric said it had sacked some members of staff in order to impart discipline and curb fraudulent practices among its workforce.

The electricity distribution company (DisCo), Wednesday, January 29, stated that it terminated the appointments of the affected staff for various acts of fraud and gross indiscipline.

Daily Trust reports that the affected staff members were served their dismissal letters recently after they had appeared before the company’s Disciplinary Committee to defend themselves over the allegations preferred against them.

The Committee was said to have found them liable in breach of the company’s Conditions of Service rules, hence their dismissal.

Abdulazeez Abdullah, Head of Corporate Communication, Kaduna Electric, in a statement said the company’s Management took the painful decision to let go of the staff.

He said the action was taken in order to send the signal to all staff that such unscrupulous behaviour that tarnishes the company’s reputation is no longer tolerable.

The statement, therefore, urged customers not to collude with Kaduna Electric staff in perpetrating fraudulent acts and endeavour to report any staff engaged in such for disciplinary action to be taken.

Meanwhile, the power distribution company stated that it has begun a series of Change Management campaigns, aimed at reorientating the staff for service excellence.

Officials who do not key into its new vision will be shown the way out, the company warned.
