The National Population Commission (NPC) has outlined the salary and allowances structure for its ad hoc staff who will be involved in the conduct of the 2023 Population and Housing Census.
The remuneration is divided into two categories namely allowances and main salary.
In the category of allowances according to the Director of Census Department, Mrs. Evelyn Arinola Olanipekun, the NPC ad hoc staff would receive three types of allowances, namely: Feeding Allowance: (a) Specialised Workforce (SWF): N2,000 per day x 13 days (3 days of SWF and 10 days of state training). However, states that did not observe the first 3 days are exempted). Total: N26,000. (b) State Facilitators: N2,000 per person, per day, x 10 days. Total: N20,000
For the Transport Allowance it is N20,000 per person. Training Allowance: (a) Trainer: N15,000 per day x 13 (SWF) and 10 (state facilitator) (b) Trainee: N10,000 per day x 13 (SWF) and 10 (state facilitator).
Accordingly, she said payment would be made twice for all categories, as follows: Transport and feeding: N46,000 (SWF), N40,000 (state facilitators). Training allowance: trainer (SWF): N195,000; trainee: N130,000; State trainers (facilitators): N150, 000; trainees: 100,000.
The above allowances would also apply to other categories such as enumerators and supervisors, but with a shorter number of training days and a slight reduction in the amount.
On average, the total allowances for specialised work force, facilitators, enumerators, supervisors, and other census functionaries range from N50,000 to N100,000.
For the main salary, the main salary for NPC ad hoc staff will be paid after the completion of the census exercise. The average basic or main salary for each census functionary ranges from N50,000 to N250,000, depending on the position.
