The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), has  developed cadets capacity in line with the new trend of insurance that is ravaging the country.

The academy said to achieve this, the NDA curriculum was altered to accommodate the new academic lecture of contemporary counter terrorism.

Speaking to newsmen in Jos, Saturday, during  the ongoing ‘Exercise Camp Highland’ being conducted for the 69th Regular Cadets Course. the director of military training at the NDA, Brig.-Gen. Emmanuel Emekah, said the modification of the academy’s curriculum is the first of its kind.

According to him: “Contemporary security challenges have necessitated that the curriculum for the cadet training be modified.

“This cadets of Course 69 are the first to benefit from the modification of the curriculum  The academy is using them to test run the new development.

“What they are doing now are things some of us did as commissioned officers, but these cadets are opportune to do it now.

“The ongoing exercise’ is aimed at preparing the cadets for the task ahead as they will soon be commissioned officers.

“The exercise is divided into four phases and the face one which was the river crossing operation, was held in Makurdi.

“We are in Jos for the second phase, which is the adventure and leadership training, and we will be moving to Bauchi from here for the third phase, the mechanised operation. From Bauchi, we will move to Kachia in Kaduna State for the final phase.

“The essence of all these is because they will soon be commissioned as officers and leaders to lead their various platoons in battles. They should have this knowledge to be able to lead their troops wherever they find themselves”, Emekah said.
