Female lecturer in Australia

A Nigerian lecturer in Australia, Dr Adélaïde Tinuke, has caused quite a stir online after revealing she earns $1844 (N2.8 million) per week.

Dr Adélaïde revealed this while supporting her argument on X that “Nigeria is the definition of monkey dey work, baboon dey chop.”

According to the lecturer, while in Nigeria, she earned $110 (N170k) per month, but now she makes 10 times more than that in just a week.

She added that the same lecturing job she had earned a meager amount in Nigeria was what she still does in Australia.

She tweeted on X: “Let me break it down so you understand.

“When I was lecturing in Nigeria. I earned about $110 USD per month.

“But with the same lecturing job in Australia, I earn $1844 USD per week.

“Hope you understand now?”

This news is coming after the Australia government decided to increase minimum wage to $915 per week for the lowest-paid workers.

@Bayo_Akindele said: “Doc, this your comparison is below your qualification level! Quoting your income while omitting other key elements such as taxes and expenses is misleading.

“It’s sad how quickly people forget the privilege they had while in Nigeria once they traveled abroad.”

@phildubem said: “Not even a fair comparison as it is. 

“The fair comparison would be.

“Nigeria = $100 USD per month.

“Australia = $7,376 ~ $9,220 per month.”
