Kaduna Electric has announced the dismissal of 39 members of its staff for various offences which were in breach of the company’s employee policy.
The company’s Head of Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, made this known in a statement on Monday.
He explained that the offences committed by the sacked workers range from misappropriation of company funds, fraudulent practices, unauthorised access and absenteeism.
According to Abdullahi, the offences were in breach of the revised employee conditions of service, which were recently endorsed by the national leadership of the two in-house labour unions and the management of the Disco.
He added that the action of the dismissed staffers had adverse effects on the company’s fortunes and needed to be checked.
“Management seriously frowns at all manner of fraudulent activities perpetrated by staff and would act decisively by punishing all those caught,” he noted.
