The Board of Eko Electricity Distribution Company has redeployed Dr. Tinuade Sanda from her position as managing director/chief executive officer.

In a letter signed by the company’s chairman, Dere Otubu and seen by Daily Trust, the company explained that the decision was due to a directive from the industry regulator, NERC.

A statement by Eko DisCo noted that the directive, aimed at addressing the ghost worker issue within EKEDC, has led to the cessation of the secondment arrangement, thereby granting EKEDC the authority to directly employ its management team as it sees fit following a comprehensive investigation.

The restructuring, it noted, is designed to enhance accountability and transparency within the organization. Additionally, NERC has empowered EKEDC to enforce disciplinary measures against any staff implicated in the ghost workers scandal, ensuring the maintenance of integrity and efficiency in its operations.

The letter stated: “We have received a directive from NERC stating that all staff working for the utility must be employed directly by the utility, bound by applicable service conditions that are applicable to the employees of the utility, and paid through the utility’s payroll.
