The restructuring at one of the major energy distribution companies in the country, Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC), has led to the exit of its chief executive, Ms Tinuade Sanda.

Ms Sanda was redeployed from the organisation in accordance with a directive from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

The Chairman of EKEDC, Mr Dere Otubu, in a letter dated March 21, 2024, had said based on the authority given to the firm by NERC to remove any employee it did not directly employ, Ms Sanda would have to vacate her position and be redeployed to WPG Limited, where she came from.

“You are hereby relieved of your role, office and position at EKEDC, effective immediately and returned to your employer, WPG Limited,” a part of the letter addressed to Ms Sanda read.

“We hereby record our appreciation of your valuable services and contribution to the growth and success achieved by EKEDC over the years as a second staff from WPG,” the letter added.

Business Post learned that the reorganisation of the management team of EKEDC has led to the appointment of Ms Rekhiat Momoh, as the acting chief executive of the company.

She is armed with over three decades of experience in the power sector, rising through the ranks in the ecosystem from the days of the defunct National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) to the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).

This newspaper gathered that reshuffling at EKEDC as directed by NERC was to address the ghost worker issue within the organisation, granting the energy firm the authority to directly employ its management team as it sees fit following a comprehensive investigation.

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.
