Lecturing is a noble profession anywhere in the World, they are responsible for recent innovations and millions of Dollars are injected to carry out various research and developments because it is regarded as the Engine room of any country. It is believed that professionals in this field give less attention to the financial gains due to the perceived passion attached to the job, however, that is not to write off the fact that they need to be properly paid as they have families and other basic expenses to cater for like workers in other fields.
Truth be told, Lecturers in Nigeria are poorly paid, and this includes Lecturers in UI (University of Ibadan). Research and development in our tertiary institutions is on zero level, the Tertiary institutions are fast decaying and losing their relevance and this is due to the negligence on the parts of both state and Federal government of Nigeria which has resorted to lecturers coming up with nefarious ways of making extra money like selling of handouts and other indirect coercive means of extorting money from innocent students (students can relate to this) to meet the basic needs of their immediate families, though Lecturers in UI are free of this accusation (Selling of handouts to students to earn extra cash)
In this post we shall succinctly be discussing on the take home basic annual and monthly salaries of lecturers in the University of Ibadan. Till date, according to the NUC latest ranking on the best universities in Nigeria, the University of Ibadan ranks as the best, a position that has been held for the past four (4 years), this would not be possible without the experience and knowledge of these lecturers and the entire management of the University (Academic and non-academic staff) who work selflessly to ensure they give out their best.
Often times, UI put up job vacancies for lecturing jobs and applications are received from suitably qualified individuals who posses the necessary skills and qualifications required to fill the vacant positions. The latest publication by the management was for the latest vacant positions for lecturing Job at UI and the monthly salaries attached to the job, this gathered wild accolades from the general public as many saw the who employment process as being transparent compared to what we see and hear from most government establishments and agencies.
