You are right. Nigeria's problem is actually a case of mixing oil and water(north and south) in a broken bucket (suspect constitution)

Nigeria's Minimum wage is far low compared to some of these African countries. Some people might want to argue that we should factor in the population of this countries as compared to Nigeria, that's a valid point too. But then, if we should fact in size of population then we can as well consider the size of the Civil service in each countries population. This will make a nonsense of the argument of population as the size of civil service in Nigeria is far lesser than other countries when compared to total population.
The total size of Nigeria's civil service is less than 2% of the entire population.
But in Nigeria, that less than 2% civil service population take up 65% of National budget. What that means is that 2% takes up 65% budget while 98% benefit from 35% indirectly in terms of infrastructures.

The problems associated with Nigeria's minimum wage are as followed:
1. Over bloated civil service ( a good percentage of the civil service are ghost workers). Right sizing of the civil service is what is obtainable in other countries.

2. Unproductive civil service. When a work force is productive it can generate funds to necessitate pay rise. Nigerian civil service is unproductive hence their low pay. In other climes, the civil service is highly productive and digitalized to ensure efficiency.

3. Highly skewed salary structure culminating in wage disparity or income gaps. The civil service structure is such that the huge chunk of the wages goes to a few at the top managerial positions while those at the bottom get peanuts. While members of Assembly as getting millions, the lower workers are paid less than 30k. In other countries wage disparity is almost minimal.

We need to see more of posts like this.

APC members will tell us that petrol is 5k per litre in some African countries so we think we are enjoying for buying petrol for N700 per litre, but they won't tell us the minimum wages of those countries.

If you think your population is the reason you are poor, why can't you advocate for disintegration so that you can be rich in person and as a nation be richer the the country mentioned?
