  1. Before they joined Nigeria Army don’t they understand the dedication and commitments required? A soldier is a resolute man on the battle field and that he must remain. He must also be a disciplined man to take and act according to instructions. Its indeed a pity that some are to die for one offence or another, it is to send messages back to the other soldiers about the inevitability of death in the discipline. If soldiers are running away from the insurgent, is it the police or fire brigade or the ordinary untrained and unarmed citizen that will go and face them? God will help this nation and give us good leaders to follow.
