Kaduna Electric Employs 310 NYSC Members

By Dipo Olowookere

Not less than 310 members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have been engaged by management of Kaduna Electric across its franchise states for the ongoing Project 415 customer enumeration exercise.

The exercise which would be carried out in Kaduna, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States has commenced in earnest in Kaduna metropolis.

Kaduna Electric’s Head of Human Resources, Hajiya Khadijah Kabir, said her department specifically made a request for the number of youth corps members to the NYSC state secretariats in its franchise and that Kaduna Electric is glad they accepted the request.

“We intend to engage 200 corps members in Kaduna; 50 in Sokoto; 50 in Zamfara and 10 in Kebbi state. The number for Kebbi state is low because we have already engaged some students from the state university of technology, Birnin Kebbi that would be involved in the project.

“We are going to train them and each corps member will be given a tablet that is going to be used for the exercise and we are going to have some of our staff that will be monitoring them closely so that we achieve the desired goals of the exercise,” she said.

She added that engaging the corps members by Kaduna Electric is also aimed at demonstrating the company’s support for the drive to help the corps members acquire some skills and experience that will be useful to them after the service year.

The project is going to be conducted feeder by feeder to ensure proper monitoring. The project is expected to be completed within six months, she said.
