Nigerian Army Recruitment Portal Currently Open For Direct Short Service
Applications for the Direct Short Service Commission Course in the Nigerian Army have begun to be accepted by the Nigerian Army.
The recruiting site will be available from Friday, March 25, 2022, until Friday, May 6, 2022, with a deadline of May 6, 2022.
According to the army homepage, the DSSC recruitment is available to both civilians and serving military people; however, only serving military personnel who have been sponsored to civil institutions by any of the Services of the Nigerian Armed Forces would be considered.
While interested individuals are permitted to have tattoos or inscriptions on their bodies, the army has cautioned them that they must be free of any physical or mental handicap.
Despite the fact that the application is free, the army cautioned interested individuals to submit their applications solely via the army’s official website recruitment.army.mil.ng in order to prevent being fooled by criminal groups.
