The EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission), and ICPC (Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission) are both Nigerian agencies charged with almost the same task.
The ICPC targets corruption in the public sector e.g. bribery, abuse and misuse of office, graft, etc. While the EFCC investigates people who appears to be living above their means. All the same, both agencies are charged with the task of fighting corruption.
Both of these agencies require the workforce to carry out this task on behalf of the agency, thereby creating reason for the employment of individuals fit for certain vacancies.
This then brings us to the important question what is EFCC and ICPC entry-level salary? – This will be discussed shortly.
The question; How much do they pay? Is practically the first a friend would ask if you told him you’ve got a new job anywhere, and you’ve got to have a good answer – as per the value of income. Clearly, you need not wonder why the value of income is important, the amount you earn in a month or per annum has a huge role to play in determining your standard of living.
Salary, wages, bills, funds, income, credit, and every other way it is referred to, as simple as it is, it can make the workforce crumble of any firm/agency will crumble – not everybody is open to working for free.
First we must know that The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and Independent Crimes and Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) are government firms, and like all government firm’s money is allocated for them to pay salaries of workers or staff.
Secondly, the EFCC and ICPC do not open up for employment every day of the year. Rather they open up for employment as the need arises i.e. when a vacant position needs to be filled. They recruit newbies approximately five to seven times a year. Entry-level staffs (fresh graduates) are also free to apply for positions in these agencies during the vacancy period. Now let’s look at the entry-level salary structures of both organizations.
EFCC Entry Level Salary Structure
The EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) pays fairly well – at least it is well above minimum wage. An entry level staff in the EFCC receives ₦158000 monthly, which sums up to ₦1,896,000 per annum. Monthly allowance is allocated according to the respective ranks in each level. Entry-level staffs can apply for promotion after two years of service, thereafter the salary may be augmented.
ICPC Entry Level Salary Structure
The ICPC just like most government organisations, pay staffs according to levels, and ranks. An entry level staff in ICPC earns around ₦74,000 per month, which amounts to ₦888,956 per annum. Of course, staffs are also entitled to allowances, and this is paid with regards to the rank in each level of the organisation.
