But my passion for Nigerian Army keeps growing by the day. My father saw he can’t do anything about it so he decided to give me his blessings. That was the beginning of my journey into Nigeria Army”.


“After my secondary school I immediately applied to join the Nigerian Army. I thought it was going to be easy but it wasn’t. In fact, I am over 5ft tall and healthy so I thought I have all it takes but I was wrong with my assertions.

After going through the whole processes I could not make it, and the worst thing is that nobody will tell you why you are not selected. Due to I am passionate about joining the force I was willing to apply again.

The following year, as soon as the Nigerian Army form was open to the public I applied again. After going through the rigorous processes I didn’t make it. In fact, I applied up to four times and it was at the fifth time I made it into Nigeria Army force.
