A Nigerian Professor gets paid significantly more than the rest, as can be seen from the salaries of professors in Nigeria above. Only a few civil workers’ salaries in Nigeria come close to matching that. It’s no surprise that graduates in Nigeria are competing for lecturing positions. Private universities, on the other hand, pay more than state and federal universities.

This isn’t to say that working as a lecturer in a Nigerian institution isn’t demanding. The job necessitates dedication, hard work, sacrifice, and discipline. Despite the fact that professors are given a large salary, they still take sabbatical leave, which allows them to work for other universities on a contract basis.

Candidates who want to apply for a job at any Nigerian university are always curious about how much every lecturer or professor makes.
