|Academy Tales by emmycool44: 4:43pm On Mar 08|
Being a cadet has always been my dream,seeing officers all dressed up sparking clean and ozing of confidence,power and class spurred me into working hard to achieve my dreams.
failing on my first attempt did not deter my efforts as i worked harder towards attaining success on my second attempt.
combining my two hundred level work and reading for jamb and d NDAEE was not easy at all but my dreams and aspirations kept me going, I denied my self of sleep through out dat period.
my biggest fear was jamb wic I narrowly escaped with a score of hehehe, I no go talk am. d almighty NDAEE finally came, calculators were not allowed but dat was not a problem for as most questions were from deir compeduim.

coming out of d exam hall I saw lots of frowned faces, an indication da d xam was not really easy and I knew dat d harder d exam was d lesser d competition.
happily I went home full of confidence dat I I'll definitely b shortlisted for d AFSB.
FASTFORWARD to April 15 2014
woke up to d news of being selected as successful into d 66rc of Nigerian defence academy, I couldn't b any happier but den my joy turned to sadness at d thought of d harsh and rigorous training dat was ahead,I had to come terms that my peace had been sold and days of freedom over, I was about to become a govt asset another weapon of death.
I resumed academy on d 27th of sept 2016, at d site of camouflage at gate I began to fret, deir faces were full of malice,injustice , sadness, bitterness and pains waiting to devour us.

oga @ d top decided to switch on d sun, hitting us hard to our bone marrows, we were finally allowed to go and breakfast/lunch and surprisingly we were allowed to eat enough not knowing dat d worse is coming. we filled out and den frog jump asin a distance of 3.2km men, wen I got up my legs were as light as paper as I could not feel dem. evening endurance came as a relieve to us, we were happy and our morales were high.
we got back and started reciting d NDA valour system and we were also taught our battalion anthem
MOGADISHU CHAMPION BATTALION, MOGADISHU LOYALTY AND VALOUR, MOGADISHU SHALL YIELD TO NOTHING, SHALL REIGN,SHALL REIGN SHALL REIGN, WE SHALL STRIVE TO WIN MORE VICTORY, WE SHALL ALWAYS BE VICTORIOUS, d rest I jus dey chew mouth dey go,no knowing I was being watched ,d guy jus smiled and nodded.

back home back home back home where I blong, it won't b long, fit up fit up let's go, mama can't u c,wat d army has done to me but it won't be long,fit up fit up let's go.
I used to drive my limousine, now am hunching everywhere but it won't b long, fit up fit up let's go.
we sang with high morale as d days turned to weeks and to months, we av survived so far,some with broken body parts and some with scars dat I'll remain forever.
Morale!! hail Morale!! hail
December where u dey o,December where u dey o December, I want to c my mama December,where u dey o December.
we were in a happy mood as December was fast approaching but still seemed like forever.
camp initial on our mind, as we braced up hoping to win it for our battalion and it was going to b our first tym away from d academy and our snrs.
camp initial not easy,first night we had to navigation through a forest in kawra village and pick up marks at various points where we would b counted and our riffles accounted for. new terrain and all we had was our personal weapons, compass and maps for navigation. d exercise lasted from 1200hrs to academy, we were back at base,we arrived third,mehn d beating we received from our officers ba,if for bta say na boko haram catch us. lol.
we eat breakfast by 0600 hrs, boiled egg,bread and tea,one good tin bout academy is good training condition as in welfare, our food is always rich and satisfying b it in d bush or in academy. I forgot to mention dat Mogadishu is food (can we) battalion,na us eat pass and train pass.
we were done eating and waiting for our next briefing, grid points were given to us to plot our bearing on d map. 28km was d total distance to b covered,we parked water and our junk foods so as to renew strength. 6km into d journey we began to to dispose our food as to become lighter but den we became hungry, thirsty, and tired finally we reached a gutter oboy we drink d water like dat o, re we not africans, e no fit kill us na, well were second to return to camp.
days passed and various activities completed, it was den d last day which was a 34km race to b completed in 3hrs, dat is d first battalion to av 80 cadets back within d tym wins.
to b continued.
