NDA Kaduna commissions 295 cadets into Nigerian Army


The Nigerian Defence Academy commissioned 295 cadets of the Short Service Course 47 into the Nigerian Army today in Kaduna.

Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, was the Reviewing Officer at the passing out parade of the new officers.

He said it was their responsibility to learn fast and adapt to their operational environment, noting that their career progression would depend on their individual character and efforts at self-development.

The minister admonished the new officers to defend and protect the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and serve the country selflessly with loyalty and integrity.
