The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) says the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) remains one of the basic requirements for admission into the academy.
NAN reports that Bashir Jajira, the academy’s spokesman, broke the news in a statement issued in Kaduna on Saturday.
Jajira said the clarification was against the backdrop of rumours making the rounds that the academy had suspended the use of UTME for the incoming members of 73 Regular Course.
“The academy wishes to inform the general public that UTME is one of the basic requirements for entry into the academy. All interested applicants into the academy must have passed the UTME and attained an acceptable minimum national standard as determined by JAMB annual policy meeting before gaining entry into the 73 Regular Course,” the statement read.
The general public is advised to disregard any information circulating on the social media purporting the suspension of JAMB for 73 Regular Course.”
The NDA urged the public to disregard the rumoured suspension, noting that people should visit the academy’s approved platforms to get information about its activities.
The information, which is false, has no link with the NDA and is capable of disqualifying interested applicants from gaining entry into the academy,” it added.
“The academy wishes to reiterate that all activities relating to admissions into the NDA are duly publicised on its official website: www.nda.edu.ng and in some national dailies.”
