Oh I see, thanks for that.... I hope I will summon courage one day to ask him how much his pay is....

Quite okay then, but even if you don't ask him or he refuses to tell you about it, just know that what am telling here is the basic salary of a private in the army.

Because 1 ETI is not a nigerian bank* eco-transnational incorporated its a finance and investment company which owns ecobank- and 2 because they don't pay any nigerian 350k, except like I said you are a SBO, BBM, or AM - they pay the few that are chosen, in dollars and they may not necessarily be based in nigeria- mostly in togo* the "executives" in training have over 8years experience with ecobank -before they are sent by road not even by air to togo for the exams and then training and I would tell you- ecobank if you are looking at it from outside is not what it is on the inside* -
ok

Just to put the records straight:
1- I'm not a Psychologist ( I said higher than)
2- I'm not in the US Army
3- since you claim to know, how much is deployment allowance Deployment allowance for 3 consecutive years
4- this is not about you and me!

This is about knowledge and opportunities available out there and genuine.

Finally, I don't work for or on behave of the US and I'm not a recruiter or an agent and I don't know an agent.

US Recruitment is very straightforward and direct with no intermediaries for those interested.

I'm sorry I made a contribution.

We are exchanging information. Sorry for my harsh tone.
Of course, there is a lot of opportunities in the US military but mostly in benefits such as VA mortgages, tuition payments or reimbursement (you have to work for the military for a specified number of years after graduation), etc.

Salary is never the primary motivation for joining the US military. I got involved in this exchange when you started throwing out fictitious numbers as facts. As a matter of fact, I called some colleagues to see if there is a raise that we are not aware of. Of course, there were raises earlier this year but nothing remotely close to the numbers you are quoting. Deployment benefits are in the hundreds of dollars and when added together is less than $2k/month. So the $250k/yr for a Psychologist in the US military is an IMPOSSIBILITY. And for N100m equivalent in less than 3 years as stated by some dude is ridiculous as well comical.

NB: Some folks on NL are not teenagers or High School students. So when you put out information, expect some rebuttals.

Stop ranting bro. 80k is a very decent salary for army recruits in a country where the minimum wage is 18k.

I even doubt it's up to that. I'll be surprised if it is.


How does that(minimum wage) Justify d pay(80K)?

U can have ur brother work at a pure-water factory for even 15K, but not in d army for 80K..so, whatever d minimum wage is, it doesn't justify d pay for a kinda "life on d edge" life dis guyz live.





They been like a bleeping dead gun from the very minute they got called to serve d nation

I am a discharged soldier. U guys comparing a banker wit a soldier shuld tink twice. V u been on top of ur wife at night n u r suddely called to ajuwaya n report to duty? U go on ur annual leave n enjoy it as u lyk nt as for a soldier, he cn spend a week n he is recalled bk to duty. A soldier will be on guard duty for a whole two weeks witout seen his family. Cn u go to ur office n remain der for a whole two weeks witout seen ur family? A soldier cn wear his boot for a whole week witout removing it, cn u wear ur shoes for a whole week witout removing it? V u ever heard d sound of a riffle before? Ordinary kockout will make some of u to shit in ur pant. Do u know wot it means to be in d trench for days witout taking ur bath? Dat riffle u c, wen d magazine is fully loaded, carry it for a whole day n c wot u will feel in ur muscules. Do u know wot it means to be on sentry for hours? Be on parade for hours witout shaking or moving ur body? Cn u live in the bush for weeks or months sleeping in d tent? Do u know d distance soldiers covers wen trecking in an operation? Some of u will treck from Oshodi to Agege during fuel scarcity n be cursing d govt bt a soldier covers miles during an operation cos its nt everywere dat is motorable. My guy, be honest wit urself, does 80k worth all dis?

Its not really up to 80k most especially for the privates. They receives about 73k which doesn't worth d risk involved in d field.

When in the field, they receive a daily allowance which adds up to more than the monthly salary for every month they are out there.
Re: What Is The Average Salary Of A Nigerian Soldier? by pobosky20(m): 7:45am On Oct 07, 2014
see figures abeg. To be frank with u all, a private soldier earns 49/ 50k (depending on yrs spent on current rank), a lance corporal earns 52k while a corporal earns only 55k(nb:may rise to 58k after 8yrs on same rank).
**These are d confirmed once i can give u**
Nb; NCOs(those on lower ranks,not d officers) promotion is very poor. some joined d army since 95 and are still lance corporals.
