      How on earth any serious recruitment can come up and exclude Lawyers and Doctors all together at the same time, and by a whole almighty Nigerian Navy?! This is recklessly ridiculous and lack of common sense compared to U.S Navy or the navies of other developing countries! That is why Nigeria is always backward when it comes to the security issue. All the security institutions lack the required, mentally security calculation at all! It’s unfortunate indeed!

      Its unfortunate that statistics is classified under Education in the Nigerian navy recruitment 2013(DSSC) and its only meant for B.sc, BA, B.ed but not include HND. This is not too good for me, i have HND in statistics-upper grade so to say and i am very proud of that and in my recent performance outside school system, i discovered i can do better than someone who hold B.sc or what have you. So please, if there is a way HND can also apply, i have interest in navy service and i love to serve there. Thanks
