The salary scheme of the Officers of the NPS has been increased by the recently drafted Consolidated Para-Military Salary Structure (CONPASS).
In this regard, workers receive a monthly pay of ₦ 50,000 (cumulative sum of ₦800 000-₦1 000 000 per year).
As should be expected, the higher-ranking officers receive a higher sum. Specifically, the Controller General of the NPS earns the highest amount, while the Assistant Generals and Deputy Controller Generals receive a progressively lesser amount.
The most lauded part of the new salary scheme is that there is room for salary increments for lower-ranking officers. Officers in grade level 07 were transited to 08.
