The head of Nigeria's civil service, Steve Oronsaye, has banned televisions from public offices from the end of this week as they distract workers.

His spokesman said that Mr Oronsaye had observed that they "contributed to lowering productivity".

Correspondents say it is not uncommon to see people watching soaps and Nigerian "Nollywood" films at work.
Ministers' offices and areas that needed televisions for media reports will not be affected by the ban.

According to Nigeria's Daily Trust newspaper, subscriptions to satellite television stations will also be cut.

"The attendant subscription cost of cable television networks has become a drain on the recurrent expenditure in public offices without commensurate benefit", the paper quoted the statement as saying.

well,its good to think of ways that will make workers to focus on thier work,but lets ask ourselves questions......wont it lower the consumer demand in that sector,is it good for our economy?,or must the sector suffer the unprofessional attitude of some incompetent workers?,the stuff i think is meant for visitors,so they musnt leave their duty post just to watch telly!,well if the bill have been passed,it still needs approval by the house.
