The Nigerian Army has announced a raise in the Ration Cash Allowance (RCA) for its personnel, raising it from N1200 to N1500, as reported by SaharaReporters, in response to difficult economic conditions.

Instead of centralised feeding, the RCA supports the nutritional needs of Nigerian military personnel.

The employees impacted by this move will receive their meals centrally in cases where central feeding is available.

“RCA is applicable under the following conditions: 1. Military personnel on residential courses at military institutions outside their normal place of abode.

“2. Military personnel on 24-hour guard.

“3. Military personnel on hospital admission in military hospitals.

“4. Military personnel on approved military exercises and operations.

“5. Military personnel on escort or temporary duty lasting 24 hours or more outside their duty station.”

A message that SaharaReporters alone was able to receive claims that the move was in line with the Chief of Army Staff’s plan to transform the army into a highly skilled, well equipped, and highly motivated force.

Major General E.E. Emekah signed the letter, dated January 29, 2024, on behalf of Chief of Army Staff Taoreed Lagbaja.

“In line with the COAS Command Philosophy to transform the NA into a welltrained, equipped and highly motivated force, the COAS has further increased the Ration Cash Allowance (RCA) of our dedicated troops from N1,200 to N1,500 per day with effect from 1 Feb 24,” it read.
