In a bid to discharge its new mandate of providing potable water to all parts of the Coal City and environs, the new Management of the Enugu State Water Corporation has embarked on massive recruitment of engineering, technical, administrative and operational staff needed to drive the organization towards achieving its lofty goals.
This, the Corporation said that it hoped to achieve through the commencement of recruitment of 104 staff of the Corporation, in furtherance of the sheer determination of the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to reposition the agency and drastically tackle the inherent challenges in the water sector.
The State Water Corporation, on April 8, 2021, through an internal and external advertisement, called for application for 39 posts in 12 units, namely Engineering, Planning and Design, Operations and Maintenance, Mechanical Electrical Group, Ajali Technical Crews, Oji River Stations, and Zonal Offices Maintenance Teams. Other units are Nsukka Zone, Finance, Public Relations, and Administration.
Speak wing on the recruitment exercise, the Managing Director of the Corporation, Engr. Martin Okwor, said that many workers of the Corporation lack modern skills to drive the current utility concern for optimal result and service delivery.
Engr. Okwor, who disclosed that the Corporation is under-staffed following the retirement and death of several workers, revealed that their replacements have not been carried out over the years.
He added that “the massive expansion and modernization scheme of the present administration, under the able leadership of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, with the International Development Partners such as the AFD PROGRAM, currently in place, will require that we engage experienced staff to under-study the project.
