Doctos in nigeria are so so poorly paid that many are leaving the profession in droves, at least the poster will know where not to venture into if he/she wants to make money in nigeria:medicine.

But how true is this? My colleague whom we had our masters together in the UK was inerviewed in the UK by Exxon-Mobil and though she went to Nigeia last September, however she just told me yesterday that she's been offered the job and would be paid 10Million Naira per annum.

How true is this information? More so, when she was having the interview in the UK, she said she'll be paid 12Million Naira per annum (according to her) but she's now said 10Million Naira. Do they really pay that much in Nigeria (I mean the oil companies?)

She's only 26 by the way. And she's not working as an engineer but as an accountant.

Anyone with an insight?

To be serious, APPLIED MATHEMATICS is among the most paying jobs in Nigeria. Becos employment survey show that there is no organization an applied mathematician can not work including oil company, engineering, information and telecommunication banks etc. It depends on how you package your self.
