Does Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) Go To War?

After paying for my consulting service, the woman was so relaxed to ask me a funny question, "Do Nigerian Defence Academy students or graduates go to war?"

If you're on this page, you're likely looking for the same answer or trying to solve a similar puzzle.

As an aspirant of NDA, you should be inquisitive about what is waiting for you, not only as a student but also when you're done at the university.

This is why you may want to know, upfront, if as a student of NDA or its graduate, you could be sent to war or otherwise.

In this post, I will be covering some references, including official facts, to answer your question.

Let's Start With the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA)'s Visions and Mission

The vision of the academy is to produce officers with broad-based training in both military and academic subjects designed to serve as a foundation for the future progressive development of officers of the Nigerian Armed Forces.

Its mission is to provide each officer cadet with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to meet the requirements of a military officer through military, academic, and character development.

From this standpoint, as regards the academy's mission, you shouldn't need further explanation to know that, it's established to:

  1. give military training
  2. given academic training and
  3. develop trainees' characters

NDA is the primary institution for training officers for the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, and Nigerian Air Force. The academy provides a comprehensive military education that covers a range of topics, including leadership, tactics, strategy, weapons handling, and military ethics.

Cadets undergo rigorous physical and mental training to prepare them for the demands of military service, including potential deployment to areas of conflict.

So, if you're trained as a military man, where else do you think you'll use your training, if not at war?

There is no doubt that you will go to war if you are a graduate of NDA. However, when you're still a student, you are not ready for and can't be posted for war.
