No fewer than 500 workers of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company AEDC have been fired by the management of the organisation.
Some of those sacked were said to be very senior staff and cut across the offices in Nasarawa, Niger and Abuja the federal capital territory.
THISDAY investigations revealed that the AEDC began serving the sack letters on the affected staff about a week ago while some others received theirs between Tuesday and Thursday this week.
Those mostly affected by the downsizing were casual staff who were engaged when the AEDC took over from the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria PHCN while the affected senior staff were reported to have put in over 35 years of service when their length of services were cumulatively calculated.
