During the National Security Council meeting in Abuja on Thursday, those in attendance emphasised on the importance for the recruitment.
A top military source intimated that the President issued the order in March following a briefing from Lt. Gen Kenneth Minimah, the Chief of Army Staff, about the on-going operations of the army.
The source, refusing to be named on the basis that he had no instruction to divulge on the matter, told PUNCH Newspaper that the army did not commence on the recruitment straightaway because they needed to expand training facilities in different locations in the country.
It was also learnt that the army would commence the enrolment in May 2014.
According to the source, “We have in the pipeline, the plan to recruit. We are holding it because we want to upgrade our facilities.
“The presidential directive to us to recruit was given in March when the COAS briefed the President. But the exercise would start next month (May)”
He added that following the Boko Haram and other security challenges, the enrollment would now hold twice a year, as against how it used to be held once a year.
So be alert and move with care.

Opinion: Do you think Pres. Jonathan should resign because of Nigeria Problems just as South Korea PM did?
In the news yesterday it was said that South Korea Prime Minister Chung Hong-won, the No. 2 official in the South Korean government, apologized and offered to resign on Sunday, as the country remained angry and saddened over the sinking of a ferry that left 302 people, a vast majority of them high school students, dead or missing.
Back to our country, Nigeria, We have lot of problems troubling the nation like Electricity, Corruption, Boko Haram, School Girls abduction, Huge Fuel Price, Bomb Attack, unemployment etc.
Now my question is: Can President GoodLuck Ebele Jonathan do this also?
Would he want to quit before his 1st tenure ends?
Would he still want to contest for presidency in 2015 after all these problems?
