New Commandant of Nigerian Defense Academy declars war against misconduct


The new Commandant of Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA), Maj-Gen. Jamil Sarham, has declared war against indiscipline and vowed to expel any cadet found wanting for misconduct.

The 27th Commandant of NDA who was the immediate General Commanding Officer (GOC) 6 Division Nigerian Army Port Harcourt made the warning in his maiden meeting with the faculty, instructors and cadets of the institution

He listed several instances of indiscipline including sexual misconduct, absence without official leave, examination malpractices, abuse and unnecessary parental interventions thereby constituting nuisance to the Academy.

Against this backdrop, Sarham said he will be unforgiving in clearing the Academy of the bad eggs and restore it to its former glory.

According to him, it has become clear that recruiting and training quality cadets who can balance the four aspects of NDA training, is a vital prerequisite to the success of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, while reminding that the four aspects of NDA training are: military, academic, moral and discipline.
