PHOTOS: Popular broadcaster leaves job to join the Nigerian Navy

Veronica Effiong was a popular presenter and broadcaster with Nigeria's first 24 hour family entertainment TV channel, WAP TV for several years.

But despite having a good and amazing career in broadcasting for 7 years, Effiong some few months back made a life and career-changing decision. She decided to join the Nigerian military.

According to Effiong, her decision to join the military was due to purely occupational reason.

In a post on her LinkedIn page, Effiong said the Nigerian military had always held a funny mystery to her in that she found it easy to see more men in the military than women.

She noted that in her research to unravel the mystery, she discovered that in the military, there are only 3 women out of 10 people.

“I have to be among that 3 percent” I said to myself. That was the turning point for me. Along with my flair for a more adventurous journey, a great broadcasting career, and my desire to be among the 3 of 10, I made the decision to switch careers.

She joined the Navy in 2019 after going through the necessary training and the recruitment interview.

Today, she is a proud officer of the Nigerian Navy.
