How To Succeed In Nigerian Army 2022 Tradesmen Recruitment Selection Test – For this exercise many of you have been asking about how to join Nigerian army, and Nigerian army recruitment requirement. Others are interested in Nigerian Army past questions, but most of you have not pondered over a very important question that always feature in such selection exercises, and that is: why do you want to join the Nigerian Army?
Certainly, this write-up will in addition to giving highlights to this important issue address other patient questions you will be facing at the selection centre.
I have had a lot of phone calls asking what type of selection exercise they are  expecting. I want to say here that under such exercises there are always four things expected: Physical examination /exercise, medical test, written test, and Oral Interviews. My question is, as a young man which of these are you not ready for? My advice is that you should be ready for all. But I want to address certain aspects of the oral or written test exercise.

What is Motivating me to write this?

As a matter of fact, I’m motivated to write this by a conversation I had with a candidate who wants to join the Nigerian Army but does not know that the President is the Commander In-chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces.
 He thought the Army Chief of Staff is the Commander –In-chief of the Armed forces. This is why I want to pose some past interview questions here, so that  you can get yourself ready. Just have time to search for these anwers, I don’t enourage you to be calling for their answers, if you do, you will pay for the ansers we will provide.
