According to the National Union Of Electricity Workers (NUEE), the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company has commenced an assessment exercise to re-engage some of its sacked workers.
Recall that, the distribution company recently terminated the employment of 530 of its members. The mass sack came shortly after the company carried out what it called a Talent review in 2016.
After a lot of backlash from the National Union of Electricity Workers, Kaduna Electric reaffirmed that appropriate evaluation procedure were followed in assessing its staff in the recent talent review. Also that most of the workers were confirmed and few others sack for incompetence.
