PHCN:Outgoing workers would be paid as high N38million

The Minister of Power, Professor Barth Nnaji has dismissed claims that the Federal Government is planning to pay outgoing PHCN staff the sum of N85,000.He decried that too much falsehood has been peddled about government ‘s  position on the matter.

“ That  has to do with how much they are going to take. They say it is N85,000. I cannot understand how they could say that. Many of the people who are Junior officers with WASC qualifications are going to go home with N8million. Assistant General Manager, could go home with N28million.The highest officer could go home with N38million, So anybody telling you N85,000 has a different mission.

Barth Nnaji said workers were supposed to contribute 7.5 per cent and PHCN 7.5 per cent but since PHCN did not pay,    government will pay it .This makes 15 per cent. But the union is saying they want to be paid 25 per cent .

National Union of Electricity Employees in Jebba Hydro Electric Plc embarked on a protest on Monday. The Chairman while speaking with journalist said the government deceived the workers that they have paid certain monies to them. There is nobody in PHCN that is kicking against propaganda. All we are saying is that our entitlements should be paid. All they say in papers are just propaganda.
