“The Nigerian Navy Military School was established to groom young able bodied boys, with the right mix of academic excellence,values and discipline “I am aware that this school is just six years, and in just six years of its existence had grown in leaps and bounds and today is one of the most sought after military secondary school in Nigeria.
With what I have seen today, the reason why the school is so active is not far fetched. “The serenity of the environment, the quality of parade and disciplines as well as academic performance and spectacular silent drills are the reasons the school is so attractive. “I wish we can make all schools in Akwa Ibom have some stint of military training, so we can inculcate in them the discipline i have seen here today. “I have no doubt that this school will produce professionals of repute, technocrats and seasoned military officers, who will make remarkable contributions at both in national and international levels,”
