The Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA, has said the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, is a basic requirement for admission into the academy.

A statement by the spokesman for the academy, Maj. Bashir Jajira, on Saturday in Kaduna said the attention of the academy had been drawn to a fake news speculating the suspension of UTME for the incoming members of 73 Regular Course.

“All interested applicants into the academy must have passed the UTME and attained an acceptable minimum national standard as determined by JAMB annual policy meeting before gaining entry into the 73 Regular Course.

“The general public is advised to disregard any information circulating on the social media purporting the suspension of JAMB for 73 Regular Course.

“The information, which is false, has no link with the NDA and is capable of disqualifying interested applicants from gaining entry into the academy.
