The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) has recieved commendation from members of the Senate Committee on Defence for consistently turning out highly trained officers that have aided the armed forces in stemming the tide of insecurity in the country.
The commendation was made known by the Chairman Senate Committee on Defence, Distinguished Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, when he led members of his committee for an oversight visit today.
Senator Wamakko said the committee will continue to support the Academy to continue to achieve its mandate of producing well trained officers for the Nigerian Armed Forces, especially considering the security challenges currently facing the country. He assured NDA of the committee’s support towards achieving its mandate.
Speaking during the visit, Commandant NDA, Major General Jamil Sarham, assured the committee that NDA will continue to push towards excellence in training of its cadets and carving out possible pathways and solutions to current security challenges being experienced in the country.
Gen Sarham noted that the life of men and women of the armed forces is fraught with challenges, so cadets need to be put through rigorous training regimen to prepare them adequately for the challenges ahead. He therefore sought for the support and understanding of the general public in ensuring that NDA meets up to its responsibility.
