Have you ever thought about who pays WAEC staff? Or the salary scale for these workers in 2024?
Since it was established, WAEC has been one of the best examination councils in Nigeria and Africa.
They have been working and are still on the mission of curbing examination malpractice in WAEC, even though we all know how hard it is considering Nigeria’s corruption rate.
Who Pays WAEC Staff in 2024?
The West African Examination Council pays her staff salaries and allowances. I was wondering how they get the money. They generate revenue from the sales of waec registration forms, scratch cards for result checking, original certificates, etc.
In Nigeria, the Government works hand in hand with the council, which makes even more sense.
I have not heard about WAEC staff going on strike because they are paid on time with no delay or cock and bull stories.
WAEC Salary Structure For Staff
It may interest you that the West African Examination Council pays more than double the minimum wage in Nigeria (18,000 naira). We all know that since PMB became the president of this great nation, the minimum salary/wage in Nigeria has dropped drastically.
The minimum salary for WAEC staff is 50,000 naira, and their other allowances are attached. Examination officers can get up to 100,000 naira or more per month with other benefits.
Like any other government job in the education sector, your salary increases as you rank up or get promoted. In 2019, the council reviewed and increased staff salaries to motivate them to work diligently.
I believe you now know who pays WAEC staff and their salary structure in 2024. Share this post with your friends.
