  1. HELLO NIGERIAN’S
    Good day my fellow students and those seeking admission into the (NDA) My name is amaka , I want to use this opportunity to say a big thanks to MAJOR umor MUSA for the help he rendered me during my last year NDA examinations. I have been writing this examination for 5 years now and i have been turned down on many occasions. I sat for the examinations many times and my name always appear in the admission list but after some time, when i go to confirm the admission list, i always meet my name replaced with another name.Finally, last year, my uncle introduced me to Major umor who is a staff of (NDA) and that was what turned my story around. He gave me Assurance and told me to write the examinations last year. I did and after that, it was a shock and surprise to see my name finally on the admission list and now that i have been fully admitted, i will be ungrateful if i do not use this opportunity to thank Major umor for the help he rendered me. If you have any similar issues, you can feel free to contact him . He is a very easy-going person with a lot of understanding. Once again, thank you very much sir for everything. Contact him on +2349052571807

  2. Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna Applications for Admission into the 2016 67th Regular Course is currently going on, Make sure you register for JAMB, i will advise you as my own brother or sister because i am Already in the Academy, i passed through this same process before you and i know how it takes to get Admission into NDA and for those of you who don’t have some one to help you process the admission, to be truthful it will be very difficult for your name to be out or admitted, NDA is not by how you are Clever in school or good and NDA is not like any other Academy. It is very easy for those who have great influence and i will advice you get to know Major umor, truly he was the one that helped me and i am proud be a cadet today you can call him on this number (09052571807) he is free and humble person, tell him is Cadet Tunde Lawan that gave you the number because he is like a father to me now and if not for him i would not have been here by now, and its a pity that some of my friends who ignored my advice in seeking Major umor for help are still writing this same exam next year again and i know with this man’s help they will get the admission spedenly this time.

    I like you all and i want the best for you……
