To me, Nige­ria is in­dis­putably a low in­come coun­try. The larger per­cent­age of cit­i­zenry and in­vari­ably the work­force earn a mis­er­able N18, 000 per month. The amount can hardly take care of their ba­sic needs. The gen­eral ex­pla­na­tion as to why I con­sider Nige­ria a low in­come na­tion is in­creas­ing servi­tude, star­va­tion and low wages. I am equally not un­mind­ful of the life ex­pectancy which still stands at 47 years, the in­ac­ces­si­bil­ity of potable wa­ter, high mor­tal­ity rate, dis­eases and child labour. Of course, these are fea­tures of a low in­come na­tion.
