Divide your SALARY by 30 days and see what you get (i.e. the number of days in a month and see
the funny thing about your salary plan).
(1) An average level-12 worker in the state government civil service earns NGN 60,000.
**** And this translates to NGN 60,000÷30= NGN 2,000 every day. This is LESS THAN the amount
made daily by an AVERAGE HAWKER in the city.
(2) A freshly EMPLOYED GRADUATE BANKER in most NIGERIAN BANKS earns an average of
***So everyday, you get NGN120,000÷30= NGN4,000 as the daily value for your work-life. By
implication, this is LESS THAN the amount earned DAILY by an AVERAGE DRIVER in d city and in
(3) If you are a FRESH GRADUATE EMPLOYEE in some oil companies, you earn an average of
NGN300,000 monthly. So in a day your WORK-VALUE is NGN300,000 ÷ 30= NGN10,000
**** This is LESS THAN the daily amount earned by an IRRIGATION FARMER supplying vegetables to
Lagos MARKETS, a TIPPER CAR DRIVER supplying sand for three BLOCK INDUSTRIES and
CONSTRUCTION SITES just 3 times a day and DRIVERS of DANGOTE TRUCKS who have bought off
the trucks at scrap value and are using them to convey products between villages and the cities for
just five business owners.
--------->>>HOPE BY NOW, IT IS SINKING IN, RIGHT?
And when there is an ISSUE in the FAMILY that requires FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, the DRIVERS,
HAWKERS and the rest are looking up to you with a WHITE COLLAR JOB.
(4) If you are an NYSC MEMBER, you DON'T need to be told that:
*****NGN19,800÷30 = NGN 660 is your worth on a daily basis.
I hope you know that PURE WATER SELLERS who own a shop, a pepper soup joint and a small
TOYOTA COROLLA car to distribute pure water to five restaurants earn MORE THAN you & WHEEL-
BARROW PUSHERS working on contract for three warehouses probably make MORE MONEY than
you EACH DAY
We shouldn't end at satisfactions from these earnings. We should be more proactive, create room for
more income and strive to diversify our streams of income.
The earlier you wake up and smell the coffee, the better for you......
I know of someone right now who will say this is too ideal to be true but take your time and do this
analysis over and over again, and you will grasp the crux!!!
STOP waiting for the Government to feed you, feed yourself and help the Government feed others.
That is where we are in this age.
DO have an Entrepreneurial week ahead!!!
