The education system in Nigeria is nothing to write home about.

Year in and year out, complaints are made by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) about the governments failure to fulfill its promises.

These have led to strikes that have lasted for several months.

From teacher welfare to better working conditions, successive governments have failed to pay close attention to the needs of these teachers who are important to the development of the human capital of the country.

This, of course, begs the question: What are the salaries of Nigerian lecturers and professors at all levels of the university system?

Below are the salary ranges of lecturers and professors:

Lecturer II - N137,459 to N164,970 per month

Lecturers - N173,333 to 223667 per month

Senior lecturer - N257,625 to N371,292 per month

Reader - N314,018 to N417,062 per month

Professors - N381,695 to N501,680 per month
