Listen to article

The Governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah has sacked no fewer than 20 staff of the state Water Corporation for not meeting with his ₦50million target on water sales.

The Eastern Updates gathered that no fewer than 20 of the workers who were between level 13 and directors were handed their termination letters on Monday, January 29, 2024, when they came to work.

Sources told reporters that the affected staff of the Corporation were given a mandate to generate N5million every month, as the governor races to generate $30 billion in internally generated revenue (IGR) monthly.

The sack letter which was obtained by The Eastern Updates on Wednesday with Ref: ENSWC/HQ/P/3545 was dated Jan. 26, 2024, and titled: “Termination of Appointment”.

The sack letter of one of the affected staff who pleaded anonymity read: “Management has considered your performance and found it unsatisfactory and has decided to terminate your appointment on the grounds of general inefficiency and inability to meet your target.

“As a result, your appointment with ENUGU STATE WATER CORPORATION is hereby TERMINATED with immediate effect.

“You should hand over all properties, documents, and files of the Corporation in your possession to the Commercial/Admin.”

The termination letter was signed by Andreas Gebauer, the Special Personal Assistant to Governor Peter Mbah on Water & Waste Management.

Lamenting the development, one of the affected staff who spoke to SaharaReporters on condition of anonymity, faulted the termination of their appointment, adding that for the past 34 years he was employed in the corporation he had never been issued a query.

According to him, the termination of their appointment was against the civil service rules and regulations, adding that it also contravened the terms of employment with the corporation.
