“We have been receiving complaints of absenteeism from various places where our N-Power beneficiaries are working.
“We called their attention and advised them to desist from such dubious attitudes, but our advice fell on their deaf ears.
“So we have no alternative than to dismiss them so as to serve as deterrent to others,’’ Bodes said.
