In a statement in Abuja, the firm reiterated its commitment to level playing field for all job seekers, but clarified that there were misrepresentation in the story published by an online news site.
The full text of the statement reads: “On Friday 16th October 2016, a news article was published online by Premium Times alleging malpractice in some aspects of Abuja Electricity Distribution PLC (AED)’s human resources practices and specifically its recruitment and remuneration activities.
“While it is not the intention of this press release to respond to the specific allegations, AED Management would like to put it on record that Mr. Siyanga Malumo, who was named as the Board Chairman of AED is not its Board Chairman and information attributed to him in the article is incorrect.
“As a company committed to good corporate governance and best practice in all aspects of our operations we will, with immediate effect, institute investigations through independent auditors on these allegations and take the necessary steps required to correct any malpractices. In addition, appropriate actions will be taken against any of our officers who is found to have engaged himself/herself in these malpractices. AED strives to provide a fair and conducive workplace where all its employees can thrive.
“We therefore wish to assure all our stakeholders of Management’s unwavering commitment to international best practices in all our operations as we grow AED into a World Class project”, it stressed.
