The Management of Kaduna Electric has announced the dismissal of no fewer than 39 staff members for various offences which were in breach of the company’s policy.

The company’s Head of Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, made this known in a statement in Kaduna on Monday, saying that the offences range from misappropriation of company funds, fraudulent practices, unauthorised access and abscondment.

According to Abdullahi, the offences were in breach of the revised employee conditions of service which was recently endorsed by the leadership of the two in-house labour unions and the management led by the Managing Director, Yusuf  Yahaya.

The statement added that the action of the dismissed staff members had adverse effects on the company’s fortunes and needed to be checked.

According to the statement,  the management seriously frowns at all manner of fraudulent activities perpetrated by staff members and would act decisively by punishing all those caught.

While hoping that the dismissal would serve as a deterrent to others, the company advised customers to desist from transacting any business conniving with fraudulent persons to shortchange the company as this hampers its ability to meet its obligations to the electricity market.

The statement partly reads, “We call on our esteemed customers to promptly report any fraudulent act exhibited by our customers.

“We need the support of our consumers to weed out the bad eggs among us so that we can provide the necessary services to our esteemed customers in our franchise states.”
