The purity and integrity of the test standard would be compromised, he warned, and the Nigerian Army would not tolerate any type of examination malpractice.
General Aligbe gave the applicants advise at the Lieutenant General AO Ihejirika Auditorium in the Jaji Military Cantonment outside of Kaduna, according to a release from Lieutenant Colonel Sani Uba, Acting Deputy Director, Army Public Relations.
The statement claims that the exam is a requirement for promotion to the rank of Major in the Nigerian Army in addition to being a major precondition to enroll in the Senior Staff Course at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji, and any other subscription staff institutions abroad.
The examination, according to the statement, is intended to assess the competence of Captain-level officers while also fostering their development as junior leaders in the Nigerian Army. It also aids in the production of problem-solving officers in line with the command philosophy of the Chief of Army Staff.
“The candidates’ job advancement is significantly influenced by the examination. In order to provide well-trained, highly professional, and motivated workforce for the Nigerian Army, the examination template is directed toward successful training and retraining of people in all Nigerian Army training institutes, he said.
He said that this is consistent with the ideology of the Chief of Army Staff for the Nigerian Army, which is “To transform the Nigerian Army into a well-trained, equipped and highly-motivated force towards achieving our constitutional responsibilities within a joint environment.”
