My Name is Prince, I was enlisted into the military bin 2015, also I'm among the 73 combatant regular intake.
Military job is my dream, I always wished to be a soldier so that I can defend my country against internal and external threats.
Nigeria has long been known for having a military presence that few would dare to challenge.
The catalyst has not been in having billions in defence funds, it has not been in having huge weapons of mass destruction, it is the heart and spirit of the soldier.
I am very proud to be a part of this long and proud tradition of upholding the ideals set forth in the Nigerian Constitution.
It is something that I would recommend to all willing and able bodies Nigerians, It instills a sense of pride and satisfaction that is matched by no other.
As a soldier, there are many options as far as what type of soldier you wish to be. It is similar to choosing a career in the civilian world.
The first step in this process is choosing your own profession and desire, and also always pray to God to choose the best for you.
If fighting seems likely, this equipment can be rapidly sent to the contested area. Nigerian military personnel are rushed in on large transport planes, who then unload the weapons and supplies from the ships and embark on their mission.
Because of the Army's ability to attack and control large geographic areas, it often becomes the decisive force in conventional conflicts.
The Navy is an essential part our National Security. It consists of ships, submarines, and aircraft that can be taken throughout any of the world’s oceans.
Their awesome arsenal is nothing without the almost four-hundred thousand soldiers that make it up. With this tremendous force comes tremendous responsibility.
The chief on naval staff responsibilities include defending our waters, both foreign and domestic, attacking land targets, and transporting soldiers from all four branches.
The importance of the oceans to Nigeria's security and economic interests makes the Nigerian Navy a critical component in the country’s military.
The Air Force is responsible for conducting operations in the air and also in space. There are roughly four-hundred thousand soldiers that make up our Air Force.
Alaso, they play an essential part in our country’s defence by deploying aircraft, bombing enemy targets, and transporting soldiers.
In addition, the Airforce also maintains most of our Nation’s nuclear arsenal, as well as most of our military satellites. As our technology becomes more sophisticated, and strong.
My prayer is that, may the almighty God continue to give us strength to fight our enemies at all cost.
I am always proud of my country, and I'm ready to die for my country because I swear an oath to defend my country, so be it.
