HOW TO APPLY FOR NIGERIAN ARMY DSSC
You need to visit the Nigerian Army recruitment portal http://www.nigerianarmyms.ng Now there are some questions some people ask I will answer briefly.
HOW TO JOIN THE NIGERIAN ARMY AS A GRADUATE
This is some questions people also ask.
You can join the Nigerian Army as a graduate just like DSSC except you want to apply as trades men but not that you can’t use your university certificate for that.
So joining the Nigerian Army as a graduate is the same thing as joining the Nigerian Army through DSSC.
WHAT RANK WILL BE GIVEN TO ME WHEN I PASS OUT AS DSSC
When you pass out as DSSC ,You will be given the rank of second lieutenant which is also called one star.
You will be promoted to the Next Rank which is Lieutenant after 4 years of service.
Not that as a DSSC there are some ranks that you can’t reach except you covert to regular.
Regular officers are those officers who passed out from Nigerian Defence Academy after 5 Years of both Military and educational training.
HOW MANY YEARS CAN I SERVE BEFORE I RETIRE
The Nigerian Army DSSC is just like contract. Those who joined the DSSC, Majority of them are old and can’t do the military work more than 10 years.
So in this case, I say that there is no specific year meant for DSSC because once you are getting old,even if it’s 5 years you have served and you are getting old, you will be retired from the job by the military which is called compulsory retirement.
If you are not that old, you can convert to regular officer and you may be lucky to reach the rank of brigadier general.
