syllogism:

No experience is necessary to do the work. I wouldn't care if a 12 year old did it so long as they could do it right. Really it just requires that they can read English very well, have attention to detail, and are intelligent.

Is Nsukka a poor area? I thought since it was near a university it would be less poor.

Nsukka is not necessarily a poor area, but in a country where 70% live on less than $2 a day, to pay someone over $2 an [b]hour [/b]in a small town is a lot of money.

To highlight, even a lot of graduates in Lagos with less than 3 years of experience do not make N1.1m a year, majority are far off it. To pay someone in a town without any much industries and companies and hence hardly any jobs, that amount, I can only assume, is very good money.

Another benchmark basis for you is that, in the First World called South Korea, the average national wage is  $17K, so imagine paying someone half of that in a small town, not even Lagos, which will be regarded as ghetto in South Korea.

Rent for a good 2-bed flat in ph is 350k minimum./annum. (2 years rent: minimum 700k + 70k agency initially).
Gen + Nepa: 120k/annum
Transport 240k to 500k
Feeding: 500k


Good salary might be 3m/annum i.e 250k. so you can have some leftover.

Considering how price of commodities soars on daily basis. Payscale of nothing less than 100k for a fresh graduate is still bearable.

Please help with genuine info.

Re: How Much is a Good Salary in Nigeria? by bizmanfr: 9:45pm On Aug 14, 2011
Hi Everyone,

I have been thinking about launching a "business management" business in Nigeria for some time now. Basically, I want to hire a team of people to remotely manage several legitimate businesses that I do not have time to manage.

My reasoning is that I have dozens of opportunities that would make a lot of money but I don't have time to take advantage of them. In Nigeria people have loads of qualifications and capabilities but little opportunities. So by hiring qualified people in Nigeria I can take advantage of many opportunities at the same time with out spending 100,000's of dollars.

So here is my question:

Could I find highly qualified business people in Nigeria that could handle making and managin businesses remotely?

And most importantly, how much would I need to pay to be competitive per year? Good people would never have to worry about job security. I would look to hire for years.

Also, what else should I be concerned about with starting a business in Nigeria?

Thanks for the help!

Dave

I think what you need to hire is a manager for your various lines of business, and forget about trying to drill down to the resources that are needed on the ground. Sort of like a CEO who will set up the business and run it for you. That's very possible.

Hello,


I currently live in Italy and am looking where to move to when I leave here.

Sorry to interupt the thread, but I was looking at salary info and have a couple of questions

1 - is the internet reliable?
2 - is it possible to get unlimited phone contracts to the UK?
3 - iS the area safe?  Apologies I have been looking randomly at many countries and do not know much about any!
4 - I would still be earning money from the UK - what is the level of tax?  I might pay tax in  Nigeria if it is less.
5 - I would want to rent an apartment - what sort of price would a nice 3 bed cost?

thank you

Sorry for interupting the thread!
