The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General TY Buratai, has urged the 63 Regular Course cadets of the Nigerian Defence Academy to remain disciplined, focused and committed to the rules and regulations of the Academy, as these virtues will see them through their training and ensure that they pass out as Commissioned officers.
