    I want to congratulate those people who have registered to join army in 2019 by visiting the Nigerian Army Recruitment Portal.

    But I am also disappointed with many Nigerian youth who fear themselves by joining the army, scare others too. On the official Facebook page of the Army and here on this page too many people have commented and asked the people not to register for nigeria army recruitment 2019/2020 because they could have lost their life in it. Such a small thought has made me very unhappy.If the army does not protect us then the enemy country can make us a slave again. I am proud of the Nigerian Army, soldiers and those who have filled the nigerian army recruitment form 2019/2020. If you disagree with me discuss with me anytime.

  65. I was interested before, but now I have changed my mind, I will never take my self to some seniors to use me as their source of income! Whenever Nigeria military is reshuffled, that’s when I,or my son, will engage. I am not interested in 78rri application form.

  66. I applied three consecutive times and all through I reached the final stage on zonal screening but I was told of Quota system,,,,that was how they drop me without any fault but I thank God today because assuming I was accepted then,,,,by now I still augue if I will be here commenting

  70. Hello … I ask myself a similar question for some time I would like to join the army … and honestly if the psychologist should ask me why you want to go in addition to say that I like the armed forces and military life I can not say … I do not want to go in because it’s a good job but because I have the passion … I will definitely apply for this Nigeria Army 78rri recruitment 2019

  71. All my young Nigerian should note that the Nigeria army of the future will have to have a high degree of “operational usability” and be formed by young people ready for “personal sacrifice”. Half of them will be precarious and will be joined by a national reserve body.

  72. Hello Admin

    Thanks for the updates on 78rri recruitment 2018.
    My request to all readers. Please answer why you want to join Nigerian Army

    A question often asked by other people if you want to be a soldier. Different from other jobs that tend not to be asked. Even if you think about why you want to become a soldier (even though there are no more wars << My friend's opinion, bro) there are some who answer confused but there are also those who are confident in the spirit of answering.

  73. For those of you who are interested in 78rri recruitment 2019 programme, immediately prepare yourself the best and as much as possible because Nigerian Army Portal 2019 open for 78rri.

  74. Joining the army of your country should be considered an honor and a pride. But my friends say who wants to die.

    I love my country and I am ready to die for my country. I will apply for Nigerian Army 2019 recruitment exercise.

    I unable to found online link at Is recruitment portal changed?

    1. lol don’t mind then bro ,has for me I will die for my country and my parents

  75. I hate this job with passion. Even if Nigeria Police offer me 1 million and Nigeria Army paying N1000 I don’t mind army for life. I will go with army. I am surprised many of young Nigerians having first choice police not the army. We are born to die, army are the heros. They do all the work, they are the strength of this country. If we refused to join the army and I also refused to join who will defend the country.

  76. Sir, I am ready to join Nigerian Army. My name is Muhammad Sani Abdullahi, My age is 22 years, I completed WASSCE. I can speak, write and read Hausa and English. So please notify me when recruitment portal open.

  77. I am ready to join army anytime. I want to serve my hole life for my nation. I subscribed your post so send me alert in email when Nigeria Army Recruitment Portal 2019 open for new registration. This is my dream job so help me to get my dream job.

  78. Thank you very much. I am interested to get recruitment 2019 updates so notify me when federal government opened portal for registration. This is very good idea of the author of the website. All upcoming recruitment information should be provided in single page it will make very easy for me to visit this single page to get latest information.
