Shutup are u trying to compare a developed country with under developing country like Nigeria 🤔

Think of it when u are comparing ur achievement in life with a 2 years old boy 🤔

Don't that seems obvious 😳
You have understanding deficiency, please always try to read and understand.
I can and will never compare a 1st world country to a dead country.

Before you judge ask them how much they pay monthly for rent and house bill.
Bro house rent and bills are two inevitable things, if you like live in a 1st world country or a dead country like Nigeria, you will still pay bills. Yes most have no problem With house rent or bills, cus there's enough job to go round. Do you have a job in your country? Which job has ur government provide for you or other people?
I'm not judging, I'm saying fact.

£10.50 is an hour minimum wage in the UK. That was what an hour job got him/her.

Oir hourly minimum wage us NGN 125.

When people say wey dey stay in the zoo people no go understand.
Ah swear, majority of Nigerians have not yet realized that they are suffering. We over work ourselves just to earn peanuts (what a shame). When you speak, they will insult you or obi that's on his own. Bro the illiteracy In Nigeria is alarming, all thanks to apc.

Please be advised that the 10 pound is for 1 hr of job. At 40 hrs per week, that would be 1,600 to 1800 pounds. That's what you should be comparing to the N50,000 minimum wage. Truth is most people on minimum wage in the Western world work more than 1 job so their month ly pay before tax could be 2,500 pounds.
I'm not comparing, I'm stating the fact that these politicians knows what's good but choose not to do it because the citizens don't know themselves. And are you talking about tax? O lorde me, all the taxes Nigerians have been paying, what has it been used for?

Na people wey no get what to to over there when they japa always have it hard

That’s why it’s better you get a skill that is in demand over there, like plumbing, bricklayer, driver, carpentry, and many digital skills you can do

Taah, I guess you have not meet people.

That guy's salary is peanut bro...

No way he can be in the top 0.005% of the entire population.
You think 6 figures, probably mid of it i.e 500k is a very big salary? LoL, bros na base on what you know and people you deal with go make you reason am say na one special payment.


Did you see the part where he mentioned two hours of work a week?

How many people do 8-10 hrs of work a month to earn like 500k+ naira?

If they give you this kind of side hustle will you reject?

By the way, 500k salary in Nigeria was worth 2000 dollars+ under Jonathan....but now worth less than 500 dollars.....500k naira salary is a good salary in Nigeria. Inflation caused by government mismanagement reduced it's worth.

Exactly! He possibly doesn't know the meaning of minimum wage. Here in Nigeria where an average spaghetti has turned to 650-700, I don't think those who collect 30k monthly can afford to buy those groceries 3 times out of their salary without being in trouble.

They dare not. They can only try to buy food outside maybe twice a day max

which one loyalty card?
You can download it from their app and use the QR code or barcode with your phone each time at the till.

some stores like Coop and Tesco also send you the cards, like debit cards via royal mail to your home so u can also swipe it.

With it, you get discounts and loyalty points whenever you shop be it self service or with customer service assistants.

Most of the major discounters do it.

At 1euro to 1200 naira, that's around 12000 and the price of items in that cart is not upto 12k in Nigeria.
How is it that you guys are all missing the point?

£10 spent in the original post is earned PER HOUR in UK. Which is minimum wage here that is being reviewed upwards in January 2024 across the country. Not per month.

Average weekly hours is between 16hrs and 40hrs. For those earning minimum wage, calculate it. N30k monthly minimum wage in Naija and u take out 12k to buy an almost empty trolley of food, no be die be that? That's the point here.

It takes only 13$ to fill up the tank
That about 13-14k naira
But for naija if I no hold 40k I never even start

Naija isa dead country I swear

The 2022 Chevrolet Malibu tank capacity is 15.8 gallons (Fuel capacity).
https://www.autonationchevroletpembrokepines.com/models/2022-chevrolet-malibu

The price of gas in the U.S is 3.54 USD per gallon
https://www.globalpetrolprices.com/USA/gasoline_prices/

A full tank will cost 55.9 USD.

Therefore, it is safe to conclude you're a damn liar. And of course your wife does not own a Chevy Malibu. Nigerians and lying. All talk with no facts.

The Malabu has a fuel tank of 16 gallons. Average price if gasoline in the US is $3.40. That car needs at least $54 for a fill-up, or N62,560. My old car with roughly the same tank size only needs N39,500 for a fill-up.

I earn in dollars via remote work, like many tech guys here. What are you on about really? Stop demarketing Nigeria. I have lived in at least three countries and I can do a very objective comparison.

Not everyone sold landed properties. Most just sold household items - Yes. Nigerians sold household items (Blenders, Tv's, etc.) to be able to raise GBP 10,000+ per year to study in the U.K. Oh and it doesn't end there because there will be leftover change to pay for visa, flight ticket, and survival while in the U.K. Why is it Nigerians, on average comment without facts or applying common sense!

bro I’m not demarketing Nigeria
It just a fact
How can basic amenities be a big problem
How much is minimum wage
Since I come here
I never here generator noise
I never see potopoto or red sand
Everything is working as it should be
Although not perfect but way better
Not even police, army or even the most wealthiest person can break law here cause he or she must face the consequences

I’ve a friend in Dubai and na house girl work she de do
She’s paid 513k monthly
And that should be minimum wage

Now come to Nigeria
Common light na problem
Here internet full every where
Ask your self how much you don spend for data since you work online
Here your 1gig na your 1gig but for Nigeria if the 1gig last 1hour make you thank God

Even if you’re Rich in Nigeria
It not enjoyable
Tell your self the truth
You feel comfortable cause with the little you have you can get away with anything in Nigeria

Tribalism, religion and party politics has destroyed Nigeria and no one seem to care in as much some have their tribe, religion or party man in power

SMH 🤦🏽‍♂️
