      I have read the various area of specialization but could not find where my discipline is required. I am a graduate of Mass Communication with a Second Class (Upper Division) from the Cross River University of Technology, Calabar. I am currently undergoing my National Youth Service but with the firm desire to go for a Direct Short Service with the Nigeria Defence Academy. Please give me directives on how to actualize my dream.
      Look forward to hearing from you soon.
      Thanks. Benjamin Young Arney.

      The military authorities should stop ,with immediate effect the ideology of taking only three hundred cadet and slot allocation even high rate of disobedience and corruption, when we have million of applicant who are interested .Is military job their fathers property why are they hindering others from entering to serve their country and end a living .

    26. Paul p 2 years ago

      1, I want the maximum age range of entry to be increase to fifty years old while the minimum should be eight years old.
      2, let the intake be done by selecting able,energitic,valant and courageous men .
      3,The ideal of who knows who and slot allocation must stop by politician.
