In a bid to instill discipline and curb fraudulent practices among its workforce, some staff of Kaduna Electric have been relieved of their appointments.
The staff had their appointments terminated for various acts of fraud and gross indiscipline.
The affected staff were served their dismissal letters recently after they had appeared before the company’s Disciplinary Committee to defend themselves over the allegations proffered against them.
The Committee found them in breach of the company’s Conditions of Service rules hence their dismissal.
A statement issued by the Head of Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullah, said the company’s Management took the painful decision to let go of the staff 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 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.
The company said, it has began a series of Change Management campaigns aimed at reorientating its staff towards service excellence and warned that staff who do not key into its new vision will be shown the way out.
