A Nigerian nurse with Twitter handle @lofepramine has taken to the micro-blogging platform to lament over the meager amount that nurses in Jos receive as hazard allowance. She compared the N1000 hazard allowance of nurses in Jos with the N120k allowance that ministers allegedly receive monthly for newspapers. Decrying the disparity, she wrote on Twitter: “Nurses in Jos are being paid 1000 naira as hazard allowance.
“Our ministers collect nothing less than 120k monthly for newspaper allowance! Please make this make sense”
