Haha, when I first saw the 1,500 salary I was shocked. Then I thought the ad was a joke. I looked through the ad again and it looked serious.
Then I saw the dollar sign. It's amazing the world of difference a dollar sign makes.

Wait, $1500? Is that a monthly salary or yearly salary because either way that's is kinda low. People shouldn't think cos there is a dollar sign behind it, its a lot....that's just N225,000. With the standard of living so high in Nigeria, that amount only does so much....

Please, tell us . Is it annually or monthly? If it is annually, that is just too small.
