NDLEA Salary Structure, Allowance & Ranks 2023

NDLEA Salary Structure For Graduates, NDLEA Training Allowance & NDLEA Ranks 2023

The integrated compensation system used by all paramilitary organizations in Nigeria serves as the rigorous foundation for NDLEA ranks and salary structures. The recruitment level and the credentials that the staff members provided when they joined the agency determine a raise in rank and income.

The level to which you are assigned after entering the agency determines your pay at the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency. Level 8 is reserved for people who joined the service with a bachelor’s degree, whereas Level 7 is given to those with an HND. Employees at Level 8 typically have higher ranks and wages, whereas those at Level 7 typically have lower salaries and rankings. The same holds true for individuals who joined the organization with ND and SSSC.

National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Ranks

The Consolidated Paramilitary Salary System (COMPASS) is the compensation structure and ranks used by NDLEA. The agency makes sure that staff members receive promotions as and when they are due since they believe that doing so will help the officers feel more motivated to carry out their duties. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency of Nigeria offers the following ranks:
