Good day my fellow students and those seeking admission into the (NDA) My name is joy oluwa, I want to use this opportunity to say a big thanks for the help he rendered me during my last year NDA examinations. I have been writing this examination for 5 years now and i have been turned down on many occasions. I sat for the examinations many times and my name always appear in the admission list but after some time, when i go to confirm the admission list, i always meet my name replaced with another name.Finally, last year, my uncle introduced me to MAJOR OJOKU who is a staff of (NDA) and that was what turned my story around. He gave me Assurance and told me to write the examinations last year. I did and after that, it was a shock and surprise to see my name finally on the admission list and now that i have been fully admitted, i will be ungrateful if i do not use this opportunity to thank MAJOR OJOKU for the help he rendered me. If you have any similar issues, you can feel free to contact him . He is a very easy-going person with a lot of understanding. Once again, thank you very much sir for everything.
