NPC Releases Salary For 2023 Census Ad hoc Staff

The National Population Commission (NPC) has released the revised pay scale for the recruited ad hoc staff for the conduct of the 2023 Population and Housing Census across the federation.

The NPC divides the compensation into two main categories, which are salary and allowances.

The NPC ad hoc personnel would earn three different sorts of compensation, according to Ms. Evelyn Arinola Olanipekun, director of the Census Department. Namely;

  • Feeding allowance:

(a) Specialised Workforce (SWF) – N2,000 per day x 13 days (three days of SWF and 10 days of state training). Total N26,000.

(b) State Facilitators: N2,000 per person, per day x 10 days. Total: N20,000.

  • 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).

According to the commission, payment will 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.

NPC stated that other categories, such enumerators and supervisors, would also be eligible for the above allowances, albeit with a smaller sum and fewer training days.
