The Nigerian Army have reacted to an earlier publication from a news outlet which purportedly revealed the North's dominance in the recently released Recruitment list for Short Service Combatant Course 47/2021.

A breakdown of the list by the news outlet reveals that the South-East has only 42 selected candidates with 7 reserves averaging 13% compared to the North Central zone which has 58 candidates with an additional 13 reserves making a total of 71 candidates (20%).

The South-West and South-South geopolitical zones have slightly higher numbers of candidates than the South-East but lower than any of the Northern zones.

South-West and South-South zones have 16% each on the list with 48 candidates selected from each zone and 10 reserves each.

Candidates from North-East zone totalled 61 with 49 selected and 12 reserves (17%), the North-West has a total of 64 candidates (18%), 55 selected candidates and 9 reserves.


DISCLAIMER

RE- NORTH DOMINATES NIGERIAN ARMY RECRUITMENT


The attention of the Directorate of Army Public Relations has been drawn to an ill-informed publication of the referenced story on 29 March, 2021 by an online newspaper, Global Sentinel via its website.

The publication alleged that the list of successful candidates for Short Service Commission 47 Selection Board which was published on 26 Mar 21 was dominated by the North while the South East had the fewest candidates. It is pertinent to state that the Nigerian Army strictly complies with the Federal Character policy.

Accordingly, an equal number of 8 candidates were selected from each state of the federation except in rare instances where a state did not have the required number of eligible candidates to fill its 8 vacancies. In such instance, the vacancy will be filled by a contiguous state from the same Geopolitical Zone.

Following this number allocated per state, the South East which is made up of 5 States was entitled to 40 candidates. However, 2 extra vacancies were allocated to the geopolitical zone thereby making a total 42 candidates instead of 40. North Central for instance has 7 states (FCT inclusive). Taking 8 candidates from each state in geopolitical zone gives a total of 56 in addition to 2 extra vacancies as was also allocated to the South East gave the total of 58 candidates.

It is therefore quite uncharitable and blatantly divisive for any media organisation to whip up sentiments from such a straight forward exercise conducted by the Nigerian Army in the best interest of the Nation. The General public including media practitioners are encouraged to always seek clarification from Army Headquarters whenever in doubt on any issue rather than rushing to publish reports that would be defamatory to the image of the Nigerian Army and injurious to Nigeria’s unity.

Thank you.

I like the way groups, organisations, institutions are countering the propaganda of state enemies with facts. Since the time PMB took over in 2015 NPF, NA, NN, NAF have their recruitment distributed on equal basis to all states of the federation, the fact is there!

What's here to disclaim? It's just the fact. Since after the civil war, the north has taken over every important position in the country, leaving out the overly qualified south. They are rapidly promoted to become the next qualified for top positions that should be earned by echelon and then others (southerners) who were supposed to be next in line will be forcefully retired. You can't run a nation this way and be successful.
In the military, you'll see a lot of north.ernsoldiers who are less than 5ft2" tall. That's very rare in the South, Southeast especially

No one is complaining, let them take over the Nigerian army and get killed by their terror beast they create.

Who allocated more states to some favoured zones? Nothern soldiers!
One moment you guys are upset that the east is clamouring for more states, another moment, you are loving the benefits and handicaps that come with having more or fewer states..
Isn't that called mischief?
