NDLEA Salary Structure

The NDLEA payment system is based on grade level and stages, which helps maintain order and control by distinguishing officers of the same level.

The salary is established by the Consolidated Paramilitary Salary Structure (CONPASS)  because the agency is of a paramilitary structure. Other allowances, with the exception of RENT, are consolidated with the basic salary.

Salary is also determined by one’s level of schooling. HND holders are assigned to Level 7, whereas degree holders are assigned to Level 8.

Grade Level 8 Step 1 NDLEA holders earn around $1,004,805 per year, while Grade Level 8 Step 2 earns around $1,019,357 per year, including all allowances. This indicates that the following formula is used to compute the total salary:

Level 8 step 1 = CONPASS + Rent Allowance

₦888,956 + ₦115,849 = ₦1,004,805 (total annual salary).

₦83,733 (monthly pay)

Then the Salary for HND holders placed on Grade Level 7 Step 1 is ₦573,287.

Level 7 step 1 = CONPASS + Rent Allowance  

₦483,014 + ₦92,273.9 = ₦ 573,287 (total annual salary).

₦44,773 (monthly pay)
