The Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA) has stated that the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is a basic requirement for admission to the academy.
A statement by Major Bashir Jajira, head of public relations for the NDA, on Saturday in Kaduna, said the academy’s attention was drawn to fake news speculating the suspension of UTME for incoming members of the 73 course regular.
“The academy wishes to inform the general public that UTME is one of the basic conditions for entering the academy.
“All interested applicants to the academy must have passed UTME and met a minimum acceptable national standard as determined by the JAMB Annual Policy Meeting before being admitted to the regular 73 course.”
“The general public are advised to disregard any information circulating on social media claiming the suspension of JAMB for 73 regular classes.
“The information, which is false, has no connection with the NDA and is capable of disqualifying interested candidates from entering the academy.
“The academy would like to reaffirm that all activities related to NDA admissions are duly published on its official website: www.nda.edu.ng and in some national dailies. (NOPE)
