NDLEA Training allowance is the money which is paid to National Drug Law Enforcement Agency students who are under training.
The NDLEA is part of the Nigerian Paramilitary organization which is in charge of fighting drug abuse and trafficking. They are are also one of the highest paid Paramilitary organization in Nigeria. You can also read about our previous post on the NDLEA ranks and salary 2023.
Now talking about the NDLEA training allowance, the training allowance is in different categories. Those who applied using BSC and HND are paid higher than those who applied using SSCE certificate and NCE or National Diploma. So the question now is how much is paid to NDLEA Recruits under training. Let’s explain that below.
NDLEA Training Allowance 2023
The NDLEA training allowance ranges from N25,000 – N45,000 monthly for those who applied with BSC or HND while those who applied with SSCE, NCE and ND are paid between N15,000 – N25,000 Monthly.
Please note that the NDLEA training allowance is only meant for NDLEA students who are undergoing Training in the Agency. Once you graduate and become a full member of the agency, the training allowance will be cut off and you are only entitled to salary and few other benefits.
One good thing about the NDLEA training allowance is that it’s much better than some other training allowance meant for other Paramilitary agencies like the EFCC, Civil Defence and some other sister agency. You can read about the EFCC training allowance or the Civil Defence Training Allowance or even the Nigerian Army training allowance.
