  5. Please, any applicant for direct short service commission should not hesitate to add me with my number 07049787449. There is every tendency we have a vital information we can share for one another. I would very much glad if this platform can provide me with sufficient information that I need about the recruitment of dssc exercise. Which exact date the form used to be available for procurement and where can we procure the form sir. I wil be very grateful if my request is favourably given a great concern. Thks

  6. In this era of hyperinflation caused by the APC led government and very high risk of death in line of duty, least amount the lowest rank(private) should receive is N100,000 per month. With the insurgency of Boko Haram, a soldier can sent to war front without notice. He may or may not come back alive. The gap between the salaries of active soldiers(private to lt-col) and ceremonial(political) soldiers (col and above) should be bridged. The active soldiers face higher risks in war.
