Who subjected you to poverty ... No go find work ... Na government go dey feed Una again... Epele Sir... Go buy yam rice there na... Person buy biscuits and spaghetti and yeye food Una dey shout... Buy better food make you know how much them dey sell am there

Their min wage can conveniently afford all these

Even middle class family these days are struggling to feed.

See your federal government agents (civil defence) complaining of severe hunger.

Shame on you and your master

You are not min wage worker.

Your salary is probably far above 500k per month, that's why you can conveniently afford it.

You see this is the problem with you guys. So long as you and your family can afford it, others can go to hell. This mentality

This is misleading. If she takes that same 10 Pounds to an African Store in the UK, she won't be able to buy too many items. The reason is simple: Foreign food is more expensive than native food.

If you took that same 10 pounds ( which is more than 10k) to our local market to purchase our local food(not packaged supermarket o), you will purchase a lot of items as well. But if you took it to the Super Market to buy processed or packaged items, you won't be able to buy much. The reason is simple: Foreign food is more expensive than native food.

Let's keep things in perspective.



is it Every time you go they eat African food?, and if you must eat it, can't you look for some one to export it to you? those foods like bread, pasta, noodles, rice, is something we eat here also, only few African food aren't there. An average African can eat any of bread, rice, pasta, noodles in 2 days, once fish and meat that gives protein is there. You go just add African dishes like once in a day. Probably morning because of the cold.

If you really understands what's going on in this country amongst the people you will understand that government is not majorly at fault but the people...
So far , people don't want to go through stress at all but wants to be spending money ... Many people messed their own lives making wrong choices with their career and personal finance... Many dey even pass their boundary sef ... Many buying liability.. many can't even wait to let their money grow before spending a little from it ... I have people working as a civil servant ... Them plenty die ... Currently one just travelled to the UK , government no know ooo , her colleagues for office dey cover her and she is getting paid by the government doing nothing, a lot people are doing ... Check most of the company closing down ... NIGERIAns they employed played a big role ruining the companies too .. if you have a business now , if you leave it for a second wahala don come ... This life one will go through a lot to make it ... Everyone wanting it soft living like they will die tomorrow... I pray for long life than praying for money sef ... Not that I have enough money , but I dey manage my life ...

You did not remove house rent, taxes and other bills from that 10 pounds minimum wage

Minimum wage earners(drivers, gatemen etc) own their houses and drive their cars in Nigeria

And when dull*rds are referring to minimum wage, they always assume it's the whole take-home package. No! It's just the basic salary!!

And now there is an additional 35k wage award for all and sundry.
Your post is dull. A very dull one. How many people get that so called " minimum wage" in Nigeria? if I mean minimum wage, please go to dictionary and check the meaning of "minimum". Even that minimum wage, some State can't pay it. Minimum wage is what the least payer gets. Do you know their are some sales Girl earning 15k, 10k in Nigeria in a month. So, minimum wage isn't 30k but we can say it doesn't exist here.

Actually, that is not totally true o.
I didn't pay Council tax for my entire first year as I was exempt. Now I pay £100 / month which is shared between my partner and I as we both work. Around London, council tax is higher usually around £150 to £200 per household and they earn the highest so that's child's play to them.

Gas, electric bills? Lol, are NOT expensive at all. All Is paid in my current rent for e.g. - gas, electric, garbage, WiFi and even cleaning less than £700 a month. We only pay £5 for the washer and dryer per laundry day and they are so huge, u can pack 2 weeks worth of laundry sef and spend that every 2 weeks. For households bringing in an average of £4k monthly after tax, that's nothing na. TV license isn't compulsory as we haven't paid that at all. My best friend and her hubby pay £7 monthly. Very reasonable.

Case in point, a place called Leamington Spa which is viewed as expensive for a suburb in West Midlands, all bills is less than £300 per household. Most water bills dont go above £15 sef. And such people renting there (upper middle whites) earn between £30k and £60k annually on average, again very affordable for them.

Brand new clothes, bags, shoes and electronics are also not crazy at all. The shopping centres are always packed full with people shopping like crazy. Trust me, these people love their fashion...and pets! cheesy Remember most produce locally.

Trust me, you can save real good here within 3 months even on a starter graduate salary of £22k annually.




Bless you! Most don't believe it. Sometimes,I think some Nigerians over hype these things so folks back home don't ask them for money or are just being wicked so they don't join them.

Until I came, a close fam that was lamenting since, I just found out owns 2 homes. One completely mortgage free.

You are correct my boss.

Lots of things are very cheap in uk. The joy is you can get the expensive yet very good ones in charity shops if you know your onions. So you can literally furnish your house like a big man from charity shops. Some of the things there haven't been used but they are obeying the law of the land.
Also the so called bills are okay unless you are illegal who don't have a good job.
And you can still save a lot.

The problem with Nigerian is when they travel abroad, they want to show they have hammered and go on speedy credits. Big car,big mortgage,big everything all on credit. And then blame govt.
UK govt subsidised almost everything for her people cos they do not run capitalist economy.
Health is free. We don't add that at all.
We see that as our right. Very ungrateful people we are.

Even schooling. Govt is virtually sponsoring you in uni if you meet the requirement.

We are never satisfied.
Next April, an increment in minimum wage. How many times has Nigerian govt done that?

My brother the purchasing power is being destroyed at the moment, something need to be done fast.

They claim it is capitalism. But this is something else. In Capitalism there's prosperity and therefore more people that can afford things...

But right now in Nigeria, less and less people are affording or can afford things these days. More people dumping their cars to trek or enter transport than ever before. Less people traveling
