What Is The Lowest Income A Person Living In Lagos Should Earn To Live Decently? by kkoncept(f): 9:28am On Sep 09, 2015
So I saw this this morning and it got me thinking, what is your definition of a decent life in Lagos? What is the lowest income you can take if you are paying your rent and feeding yourself and also have plans.

With those criteria, it should be at least 100k as long as you don't have eye for paying rent in places like lekki but that is not the case for majority of Lagos residents, in other words, most Lagos residents aren't living a decent life. Even with that, renting a good self contain is likely to take 6 months salary on average. No be small wa

One of the reasons i have my reservations about work life in Lagos. But it always seems all the works in this country are amassed in Lagos. 80% of the jobs on Nairaland and jobsites are in Lagos. Must we all move to Lagos??

Funny enough, when i look at the life uncles and cousins are living in Lagos, i feel somehow....... Some have been working for close to 10yrs with no house and meaningful investment. Rather they tell me how difficult and expensive things are, a 2bedroom flat could be like 700k for a year + agent.. Now how do one cope when the children started going to school and bills grows while salary may be crawling...

Yes one would be working in lagos but ur mates in town like ibadan, akure, osogbo, owerri, minna would have built their house, own some other investments that they could run to even when the hard times knocks... This is why many lagosian don't want to come home when they are called upon, except if u are lucky to get a huge salary job..

Lagos! stop tempting me, am scared of you. lolz

Depends on what you mean by "decent" but anything under N150k is not good enough.

200k is ok; Lagos stress too much, rent will eat half of your money, and before you shayo and take care of baby (girlfriend ) it will finish
