The Nigerian Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) on Monday said a total of 326 Majors and Captains from across Army formations would sit for promotion examination, beginning from Aug. 7, in Kaduna.

The TRADOC Commander, Maj.-Gen Rasheed Yusuf, said in Kaduna that 35 Majors and 291 captains were selected for the Senior Staff Course Qualifying examination which would run till Aug. 11.

Yusuf who is also the President, Army Examination Panel, explained that the test was compulsory for the personnel to qualify for senior staff course.

“The exams will determine their progress in the army and is also an assessment of their level of proficiency in the army,” Yusuf said.

The Commander explained that a candidate must score at least 50 percent in each paper, adding that there would be no excuse for failure as the personnel were assumed to have garnered enough experience in their fields of assignment.

“It is the examination that will propel them to higher heights and understand the profession much better so as to add value to the security architecture of the country,” he said.

He cautioned the candidates against any sharp practice during the test, stressing that the “Nigerian Army will not tolerate any indiscipline as it has zero tolerance for exams malpractice.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that successful candidates would be decorated with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and Major respectively.
