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.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
