By; Amos Tauna, Kaduna.
After exploring all avenues to effect the payment of their entitlements by the the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), and Kaduna Electric Distribution Company (KADECO, the casaul staff that alleged they were laid off without payment have finally taken their case to God in prayers for divine intervention.
Leading about 1,000 members from Kaduna, Zamfara, Sokoto and Brinin Kebbi States to the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna, the chairman of the association, Alhaji Ahmed Mohammed, said they have resolved to seek the face of the Almighty after series of meetings they have held with management of the company in Kaduna and Abuja but all in vain.
He explained, “Some of us worked with Power Holding Company of Nigrria (PHCN), and now Kaduna Electric Distribution Company for over 10 years and 8 months respectively without payment.
“We had series of meetings with the management here in Kaduna and we also went to Abuja where we also held meetings with the management on ways our entitlements could be paid to us, all our efforts have not yielded any possitive result.
“To the best of our ability, as Christians and Muslims who believe in the Almighty God that answers prayers, we all agreed that we should seek the face of our creator believing that He will hear and wipe away our tears one day.”
Asked if after the prayers and their entitlements are not paid, he said, “We will continue to pray because we all believe in the existence of our creator that answer prayers and we know He will one day answer us and our money will be given to us.”
When contacted, the Head Corporate Communications, Kaduna Electric Distribution Company, AbdulAzeez Abdullahi said all those with genuine complaints have been duly paid.
