UTME still requirement for admission to NDA


The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna, has said that the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) still remained one of the basic requirement for entry into the Academy.
In a statement on Saturday in Kaduna, the academy said speculations that it had suspended JAMB for admission into the 73 Regular Course is not true and urged members of the public to disregard such fake news.
The statement signed by the spokesman of the Academy, Maj. Bashir Jajira, said: “The attention of Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) has been drawn to a fake news making viral on social media speculating the suspension of JAMB for 73 Regular Course.
“The Academy wishes to inform the general public that Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is one of the basic requirement for entry into the Academy, all interested applicants into the Academy must have passed the UTME and attain an acceptable minimum national standard (as determined by JAMB annual policy meeting) before gaining entry into 73 Regular Course.
“The general public are advised to disregard any information circulating on the social media purporting the suspension of JAMB for 73 Regular Course, as such information is false, has no link with the NDA and will disqualify interested applicants the opportunity of gaining entry into the Academy.”
The statement reiterate that all activities relating to admissions into the NDA are duly publicised on its official website: www.nda.edu.ng and on some national dailies.
Jajira advise interested applicants to periodically check the website for information relating to all NDA admissions and other matters of interest.
