He said the NCC had deployed and built two computer laboratories and optic fibre links for the two campuses in Kaduna through the Commission’s Advance Digital Awareness Programme for Tertiary Institutions (ADAPTI), and  assured the visitors of NCC’s readiness to collaborate with the management to make NDA a world – class institution.

The commandant of NDA, Major Gen. Oyebade, in his remarks, told the NCC management that the NDA which was founded in 1964 solely for military training has since 2007, metamorphosed into a degree awarding institution with several faculties where cadets are awarded degrees alongside their military trainings. He said the NDA now offers post graduate programmes in several disciplines.

Oyebade noted that the present and future military battles would depend on science and technology hence the need to hold talks with the NCC.
