Peace Corp of Nigeria Salary
Although, no official report or document online shows how much an officer in the Nigerian Peace Corp is paid monthly or yearly, we believe that the peace corp of Nigeria salary structure will be in the same range as the FRSC salary scale, since they are both paramilitary agencies in Nigeria that are unarmed. There are also benefits accrued to staff of the corp aside from their monthly remunerations.
According to their official website, the Peace Corp of Nigeria is funded from the following sources: Donations from Local and International Donor Agencies; Grants for specific projects; Subventions from Governments and Private Corporations; Enlistments Fee; Identity Card Fees; Weekly Development Fee by Members; Camp Fees; Gifts and Bequest.
Monies gotten from these sources are used to pay up the officers and staff of the corp. Also, graduates salary of the Nigerian Peace Corp should be higher than those recruited with o’level certificates. Recruitment into the corp is also done yearly.
