The management of the Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDCO) says it does not intend to sack any staff whose records are clean.

This the company says is because the recent "rationalization" exercise it embarked upon was solely to sanitize the system for more efficiency.

The company was recently alleged to have illegally sacked over 50 of its staff without concrete reasons.

It was equally said to have dissolved all its staff unions.

However, Public Relations Officer of the Company, Dr. Elijah Friday in a telephone interview with this platform said what the company did was to simply identify and rid off staff who were being a liability to the company.

He could not give the exact figure of the relieved staff as he was still awaiting the details from the Human Resource Department but however said, "There are different parameters used in assessing our staff - these could include old age or overdue retirement as there are staff we inherited from NEPA and PHCN.

"Redundancy and corruption as well as productivity and efficiency also come handy in issues like these," he said.

The spokesperson of the company stated that the exercise is a continuous one but would never affect any staff who is not involved in any "sharp practices."

Dr. Friday assured the company's customers of continued efforts to better service delivery.

He disclosed that the recent fire incident that engulfed the Zaria road transmission plant of the Transmission Companies of Nigeria (TCN) has not affected its operations as it has switched to an alternative plant to ensure continued service delivery.
