Vice Chancellor Salary in Nigeria

Now that you know a thing or two about the position of a vice chancellor, you are now ready to gain insight into "vice chancellor salary in Nigeria". 
Vice-Chancellors in Nigeria are undoubtedly very well paid. They receive prodigious emoluments as well as enviable allowances every month. Before I go deep into the salary structure of Vice-Chancellor in the Nigerian universities, we should be aware of the inequality that has crept into the salary scheme of Vice-chancellors in the Nigerian universities.

The National Union Commission (NUC) is certainly against the inequality of the salary scheme of Vice-Chancellors in Nigeria. This disparity only portrays a lack of standards and uniformity in the Nigerian universities.

Also, the disparity or inequality of the salary of Vice-Chancellors in Nigeria reflects corruption and is likely to probe or stir up anti-corruption bodies like to EFCC to investigate the financial activities going on in Nigerian universities.

Vice Chancellor Allowances in the Nigerian universities

I really want to be transparent on this one; there is no revelation of the salary structure of the Vice-Chancellor in Nigerian universities. But one thing is certain; Vice-Chancellors are given as much as N480, 000 on a monthly basis by their bursars under the name of furniture allowance. This shocking information was collected by the Executive secretary of the commission, Abubakar Rasheed, during a meeting he had with bursars of Federal universities in Abuja.

If bursars are giving out N480, 000 monthly and not yearly to their Vice-Chancellor under the name of furniture allowance, then corruption in Nigeria is extreme. If N480, 000 is giving out monthly to the Vice-Chancellor on basis of the purchase and maintenance of furniture, then what about transportation allowance and other vital allowances.
