Most people in Nigeria started working n earning from childhood due to the level of poverty or hardship in the land.
apostle96:
At 22. Private school teacher. Awaiting NYSC then. 15k

Now after NYSC..I have not landed any job
Tho I'm doing menials to get like 30k a month.
.
Why not try learn an Online Skill Set that way you can plug unto some Online Remote Jobs and earn @least $100 monthly and with time and mastery you'll quit those menial jobs.
Lamas2012:
18 , after my SSCE was retained to teach maths then nd was paid 5k then but today we thank God for where he is taking us to
Try get other streams of Income..the world is evolving and to live a more comfortable and enjoyable life one needs more than one stream of income.

As things stands Online Remote work is the best bet to earning millions weekly.
Quote me to the bank anytime any day.
I don't earn millions weekly for now but I know someone that does.
He has a Vlog platform setup for Animation & 2D/3D solutions with over 2million subscriber base that pay just $5 monthly to remain as members.

If you have access to the Internet + Browsing Gadgets and you ain't earning Online then it's your own undoing.

Hmmm... Much truth coming out.
GlobalWay: Another Senseless Igbo-concocted thread trying so frantically hard to bring down GTBank; the Greatest Bank in Nigeria. Who doesn't know that Buhari CBN Wicked policies is what is reflecting in GTB and all other Banks now? Hate perpetually eats their useless Souls up for knowing that Yorubas always easily achieve all they have spent their Generations and years on Earth trying to achieve. Yesterday's International Announcement of Olugbenga's Flutawave as the best in Africa also gave them sleepless night seizures on the Thread. Igbos are worse than Snakes! I've seen Yoruba Christians severally reached out to Igbos on Nairaland for Unity of South, but Igbos always reject like Azikwe their Yoruba-envy-eaten father betrayed his agreement with the great Christian Awolowo and went behind by night to unite with Islamic North Balewa, deceitful betrayal that put Southern Nigeria in monumental Problem till today! Satanic Greedy Sad Soul Azikwe was too envious of Awolowo's far Superior Intelligence even after Awolowo vowedly submitted to him to work as his Deputy to make Nigeria the Greatest Country in the World!

Just when I started loving some Igbos for being genuine Christians that truly(maybe pretendingly) love Yoruba Christians as bothers beyond tribalism, the Satanic Igbo Sad Souls like you have made it would impossible for the Southern Christians to Unitedly defend and Prevent Islamic enslavement of the South. You and your likes shall soon all most painfully and bitterly die hurrubly out of Envy of Yorubas. It took so long before we understood why Igbos for long so frantically spread derogatory false slandering things about Yorubas. Now we know it's because every Greatness that Igbos have ever dreamt and still dreaming of achieving, Yorubas have Achieved very them over and over and over again. Your eternally Sad Souls are being violently ripped apart and eaten up as you see Yorubas on those Great Thrones your generations have always die for but can't have. Just agree that Yorubas are forever above igbos Spiritually, Academically, Socially, Intelligently and in all other Ramifications of Life, then your peace of mind would be eternal. Yorubas are Special Souls among Humanity, Scientifically confirmed that Adam and Eve were Yorubas.. Terrible painful Death to all Igbos!!! When next you see a Yoruba, Duff your hat and Bow!

Most people complain about not having a job mine while they lack the all it takes to have a job.

When I was 12 my father used to pay me everyday i came to help him in his shop, i used to save atleast 20k in a month then. I made a lot of money then that I didn’t know what to use it for.

I landed my first cooperate job @ 23 during my 300level in the university as an office assistant to a house of rep member. The salary was 35k.

I got a federal job last year as I turned 30 years with salary of over 100k after all deductions.

I’m grateful to God but I’m still looking for a better opportunity elsewhere. I won’t stop untill I start taking home at least 500k every month.

I was 13 years old.. my mum used to pay me 50naira a week to babysit my kid sis sad

Now when I think about it..I feel cheated... I should have negotiated 50 thousand naira per day. This life no balance at all

50k a week to babysit your sibling. Are you herding cows?
