Ibrahim, mni therefore wishes to inform all shortlisted candidates and the General Public that the date for the final selection exercise into the 8 Regular Course of the Academy earlier slated to commence on 9th January 2021 has been postponed due to the outbreak of the second wave of covID 19 pandemic.

The Commandant regrets any inconvenience that the postponement might have caused but reassures all that it is for the general good and safety of all that the date be shifted as he remains resolute to ensuring merit and wishes all a happy and prosperous new year.
