Tax-paying Nigerians still have to take responsibility for every facet of their lives, including those that should be taken care of by their employers or even the government. In addition, there is little security from armed robbers nor is there an effective justice system for the common man. The average Nigerian can't afford life or medical insurance, still has no regular source of electricity. S/he must face the battles of life paycheck-to-paycheck and subsist on most of her/his income leaving very little savings.
