We can't all be in government job and in most government jobs , there's low human resource utilization so people can spend 30 years and not attain their peak of skill knowledge in their fields. Finally, remember that one day you will retire to join private either as owner or partner, you may not be able to cope as a private citizen except you use your time with government to build bridges across with people in the private sector especially in your field or the line of business you hope to go into after retirement.
Here's a free book that can help you with transition from one to the other and identifying business ideas across both sides

This kind of Private may not pay you for 3months or may sack you before the month ends. Interestingly the private job with the most security pay tangible salary. From experience if a private job offers you 150k above then you are likely to have more security than on that offer 80k and below. I know those who work for private firms that pay more than 1m and they have been there for years. But I know a bros who got 30k hotel job and they owed him till he absconded the job.

I still don't believe in the Nigerian government job and Will never take their offer. But in this case take the government job would be more appropriate.

It all depends on the kind of live you want to live.

Government job of N40,000.

You must be ready to learn how to falsify everything and implement the lies

You will be trained on how to be trained to be lazy unless to personally decide.

You turn government work to second family home for free money

However, you can decide to be different and sacrifice your rights and priviledges.

Private company work of N70,000

You need to make up your mind how long you want to do slavery work. Because of a truth any amoount they pay you they will ensure they make multiple from you in terms of your time, extra work you did not bargain for; some may even owe you for several months.

Ok, the country is hard so I retract that. This is what you do.

Take the 70k Job but be determined that you will not stay longer than 12months

Save from the salary and invest

Best investment is the one you make on yourself

Skill up fast, Spend at least 1hr everyday for 6month to learn something, it will change your life forever. There is power in consistency

Of course government job is better everywhere.

But government has limit to number of people that can employ.
Private companies have to be monitored to avoid exploitation of their workers.

Speed in the Micro, Patience in the Macro

Do the opposite of what other young adult on Nairaland currently reading this are doing, they waste their days while worrying about their years

What is your passion? What are your strengths?

If you have more than average IQ, I will suggest you learn an I.T skill

The demand for a qualify I.T professional has not peaked yet, that will happen in few years, it will then reach a plateau. When that happens, everyone will be rushing to learn but the supply will have overwhelm the supply. When this happen you don't want to be a Novice but an expert. That's why you should start now

Even if the private job pay 100k, you can't compare it with government job of 40K. My cousin works with Government but he has multiple business he is doing. He is office time is Monday and Wednesday. In each of those days, he leaves for his business at will.
I once worked with one private organization. The tension alone will give you high blood pressure. The fear of unknown is the other of the day. I resume 7am and close 6pm. Sometimes I stay till 8pm. My pay was only #86000. That is where my transport, feeding, school fees and clothing are.
Never again!

Nearly all of the replies in this thread just go to prove that El Rufai had the right idea in trying to downsize the public workforce. Why should funds meant for the provision of resources to the entire public go to pay for "workers" who want to simply sit around doing nothing, collecting bribes and running "side hustles"?

Nigeria's state and federal payrolls could be slashed by 90% with no visible difference in outcomes - the country needs radical privatization and deregulation, so all you lazy grifters wanting to do nothing on the public teat are forced to earn your living by providing goods and services people actually need or want. Children are going hungry, pregnant women are dying in childbirth, the sick are going without hospitals, and everybody is going without clean water and decent roads, just to subsidize the parasitical existence of all you government "workers" who think the world owes you an effortless living.

[quote author=Robertkenny post=102527327]Mrs. Precious

The government job is better even if it pays 40k instead of private job which pays 70k.
I've worked in private sector and can confirm that Nigeria private sector jobs are terrible. For that 70k a private sector company will take 140k worth of work out of you. Most of the times, even though official timings were 9 to 5 Monday to Saturday, I rarely left my office at 5 and most of the days left around 7pm and sometimes even worked on Sundays.
Now I'm in govt job, I arrive at office at 9am and leave at 5pm without any problem.

In private job I was happy with salary initially for 2 -3 months but after that I realised few things:

1. I was getting fat because of only 5 hour sleep and drinking sugary coffee to keep myself awake in office

2. My private job was making me work 2–3 times more than normal and only paying 70k

3. No time with family and the little time I got was used by me to sleep and recover physically than interact with family

4. Since all Saturdays were working I had no time to visit bank or to do any household chores as on Sunday also I needed to take rest and could hardly move a muscle.

5. Everyday I used to curse my job but still had to work and give 100 percent otherwise I would get in the bad books of boss.

6. After 1 year of struggle the private job increased my salary by 5k, and my salary became 75k. But that hardly satisfied me as I realized expectations from me had increased even more. That meant I was given even more work than I could take.

7. Now I'm in govt job which pays me 60k a month plus benefits. And I'm happier. More respect for work done. The public gives a heartfelt thank you when I do work for them. I feel I'm contributing to the nation. I spend more time with family.

Hell rufai isn't doing that to cut cost.He either want to replace them with loyalists or for ethnic cleansing purpose.Hell rufai is a bigot.In federal government jobs there are some tasks to be done than local government jobs.You will find Ghost workers and tribalism in local government jobs more than federal.
