Palpable fear engulfs offices of Ikeja Electric this weekend as staff numbering not less than 50 received their sack letters on Friday 6th July, 2018.

This is coming on the heels of several complaints on Ikeja Electric’s inability to serve their franchise area with adequate manpower.

No reason has been given for the sack.

This set to be laid off involves two of the eleven Undertaken Managers. These are Maryland and Ogudu Undertaken managers.

Our sources revealed that this sacking is coming on the heels of another batch sack made two years ago by the management of Ikeja Electric, an issue that is said to have resulted in a lawsuit presently pending in court.

Just like the set sacked two years ago, this batch were given only a month salary in lieu of the Notice of Disengagement.

Several staff have been expressing their hopelessness in the Ikeja Electric system as there is no hope or job security. Many has expressed their concern as they also expect the hammer at any time.

The previous sack about two years ago is reported to be more than this present set.

Some old staff has also reported their concern about the silence of the media, and the management has been fingered in buying the voice of the journalists covering the Power beat.
.

The Ikeja Electric management has been weeding out old experienced staff from the Undertaken level, while employing new hands at the Alausa Head Office.

All major departments have been affected by these sacks, ranging from Fault Clearing, Bill Distribution, Meter Reading, Linesmen, and Revenue Drive.

Concerns about the management or this power distribution company has been raised from different quarters, about their ability to manage the franchise network, and the jib security of their own staff.

One source also revealed that the Ikeja Electric management has been dealing with staff without a “Condition of Service” policy, one of the reasons the disengaged staff have resorted to heading to the Court.

The Union in the Ikeja Electric system has also failed to ensure a conducive condition of service is adhered to by the Ikeja Electric management.

It is unfortunate that the Federal Government, and the Regulatory body, NERC, has refused to weigh in on this, especially with the Federal Government not appointing Members to the Board of Directors, even after close to five years of the private bodies taking over the privatized distribution companies.IkejaElectric Sack Over 50 Staff On Friday

  1. The sack of staff is a yearly ritual and not two years ago. The management of Ikeja Electric are bunch of human tyrants. For a flimsy reason or case a sack is recommended by a make shift panel who have concluded the case before hearing. I was a victim. The OGUDU man a former colleague is one of the best hand. it is well.
