A Nigerian nurse based in the United Kingdom by name Wemimo has taken to social media to lament over her salary.

She revealed that her salary is not enough to sustain her.


Wemimo revealed that she earns £2,767 (equivalent to approximately N5.3 million) monthly but finds it difficult to sustain her life with that.

She lamented that after taxes and other various deductions, she’s left with just £1,973 (equivalent to approximately N3.8 million).

She pointed out the prevalent misconception among some husbands that their wives’ nursing salaries suffice for the family’s needs.

In her words;

“It’s high time men in the diaspora whose wives are Nurses step up and start helping in the family. I don’t think I have seen any family surviving on one income in the UK.”

Netizens Reactions:

@Figer Walata said; “A lot of people make more money than nurses. Business analysts.”

@Jennifer Chino said; “Nursing career is just name. Most HCA receive more then the nurses.”

@Mrs K said; “I am a team leader in a care home and I bring home £2500 after tax and other deductions….all nurses should be considering care homes not NHS.”

@nelsongarande said; “I am in Africa, December alone my hustle made me in excess of US$7 000 and I finished my house, yet we still want to find a way to come to the UK, crazy.”
