nigerian navy rank and monthly salary structure SSC &DSSC 2018

nigerian navy rank and monthly salary structure:Nigerian Navy Recruitment Salary Structure – In this post we are going to give you full details in the current recruitment salary structure of the Nigerian Navy.
​The 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Armed Forces Act CAP A20 accordingly charged the Nigerian Navy with the defence of Nigeria by sea. Other roles include enforcing and assisting in coordinating the enforcement of all customs, immigration, bunkering, fishery protection and pollution laws (coastguard duties), including enforcement of all national and international maritime laws ascribed to or acceded to by Nigeria.
Non-commissioned officers are enlisted members of the Nigerian Navy. To become a non-commission officer you don’t need to have a higher or university degree. They are only involved in the coordination and physical aspect of military strategies. 
Commissioned officers are more involved in decision-making and leadership in the Nigeria Navy. For them, entry requirements include a higher or university degree.
Let me use this opportunity to enlighten you on the different kinds of Officer commissionings in the ARMED FORCES:

Basically, we have  four (4) types namely:

  • a. REGULAR COMBATANT (RC) – these are the ones that spent 5yrs in NDA. On passing out, come out with second lieutenant (*) and after 6months, become lieutenants (**)
  • b. SHORT SERVICE COMBATANT (SSC) – these are universities graduates with   B.Sc,  HND or  MSc degree  who   bought the “SSC” form, on passing out, they  will become a second lieutent (*) for 3yrs before they become lieutenants (**)
  • c. DIRECT SHORT SERVICE COMMISSION (DSSC) – here, people join with B.Sc, HND  even M.Sc as well. But here is the  trick: DSSC is more of administrative than the SSC which is more of fire power. DSSC on passing out become lieutenants (**) and after 4 yrs become captains (***) OR for those with the medical degrees; instead of 4 yrs being captains, they only spend 2 yrs before  being captains (that is the 2 years  seniority for med personnels).
  • d. EXECUTIVE COMMISSION (EC) – these ones are personal  already in the service in the non-commissioned cadre like Sergeants, Staff sergeants who wish to become Commissioned officers. On passing out, they become lieutenants (**) as well.
