The Venezuelan government has announced that the working hours for its civil servants have been reduced to five and half hours from its regular eight to nine hours. The report says the reduction in the working hours is to save energy. The country has suffered regular power outages in recent times. Last week they attributed the outages to maintenance of the equipment but on Monday they have called on Venezuelans to save energy.
It is interesting that the power outage situation in Venezuela is not as chaotic as in Nigeria. Perhaps Nigeria should also reduce the working hours of civil servants to see if it will help reduce the power outage. It is obvious that the Nigerian situation after the elections has gone beyond redemption. It is not clear if the current power outage is sabotage or that the new owners do not understand what they got themselves into.
Meanwhile, the vice president of Venezuela Jorge Arreaza said the hot weather has led to power surge and the reduction in work hours is to also reduce the use of air conditioning in the work place. The Vice President Arreaza has urged the private section to use their generators to reduce pressure on the national grid. That is interesting to any Nigerian. There is virtually no household in urban Nigeria that does not have a generator. Perhaps Nigerians should ask the Venezuelans to give their government a break.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
