Goverment to address benefits of PHCN workers

27 January 2014, 16:07

Abuja - The Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) will soon visit some designated offices of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) in the country to address issues of terminal benefits.

A statement signed by the Bureau's Head of Public Communications, Chigbo Anichebe, said the benefits were those of 4 538 workers which were yet to be settled.

It said the tour of offices would simultaneously hold at PHCH’s Abuja Corporate Headquarters, Ikeja Office, Port-Harcourt Zonal Office, Kaduna Zonal Office and the Bauchi Business Unit.

The statement also quoted Anichebe as saying all the PHCN staff with pending issues were advised to take advantage of the new initiative.

’They should visit the designated venues from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day with their complaints.

 "All the staff having pending issues are advised to contact their Successor Companies' Human Resources Departments for further information and modalities,’’ it said.

The statement said the tour would hold from January 29 to February 12 to address residual issues related to the settlement of the terminal benefits of staff of the defunct PHCN workers.
