Why Nigerian Lady Dumped Teaching for Domestic Job in Libya

Kaothar Bint Siraju, a Nigerian teacher who took up a cleaning job in Libya cites financial reasons for her decision.

Responding to a TikTok post maiming her for abandoning her teaching career in Nigeria, the lady explained the cleaning job in Libya is more gainful.

Her cleaning job now pays about N100,000, while teaching English to secondary school students used to pay her N25,000. Kaothar added that the cleaning job also comes with bonuses including free Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) and meals.

“This person asked why one would leave their Bsc for a cleaner [sic].  “The reply is someone needs money,” she explained. “I am educated. Maybe not to the highest degree but I’m educated because I am exposed to an extent.”

Kaothar berated her certificate, saying: “To hell with the certificate that can’t serve its purpose. I’d rather take a dirty job that pays well than a clean job that pays less.”

She further called on her jester to stop questioning people’s decisions, stressing, responsibilities compel people to take menial jobs as such.

A week after the incident, Alaba was presented a cheque for N500,000 by the school’s alumni.
