How much per month do you think is a "good" salary for a university graduate in Nigeria? I'm currently in my final year, Imo State University and I have been looking at job opportunities online, comparing their salaries with friends, all in preparation for when I'm done with school. 
I have never worked before. That is earn a salary apart from my IT experience so I have NO IDEA what is considered good for a salary. I am currently in Owerri but my dream place to work in is Lagos state.
I don't need an amazing figure or an amount that will give me a luxurious lifestyle. Just a nice salary that one can live comfortably on in Lagos. This is so that when I see stuff like "average salary is N54k per month" on a job, I will know whether to think "hmmm, that's kinda low" or "yeah! that's a good one!''
Please help me my fellow readers. Thank you very much.

I wont take anything less than 500k. It cost about 200k a month to rent 2 bedroom flat in Lekki. It cost about 90k to buy fuel for generator. After food and other expenses. You will hardly have 100k left a month to save.

may i ask you what you are doing presently, maybe you are still in school, by the time you graduate or be in the labour market for long , you will realise that 500k job is not for fresh graduate

I am currently working. It is a choice i believe. i did not spend 5m a year on education to go get a 100k job. in reality 100k is nothing and you yourself know this.

so in Nigeria , the amount you spent in school is what you use in juxtaposing what you earn after school abi? Is that the salary you are collecting per month now?

phyuk this stupid question, how many company pay 100k in Lagos. guys be real, you can only get an average salary of 50k mostly in lagos. if you want more then you must know some VVIP. period, for me it's better you develop yourself and get something good doing for yourself ok.
