It was a pathetic sight at the 13th Brigade Premises of the Nigerian Army in Calabar, Cross River State on Saturday as thousands of youths converged to write the examination for recruitment into the Nigeria Army.

Applicants crowded the field in the premises and spilled over to the pavements of adjoining Barracks and Marian Roads.

Even when it started raining heavily, the applicants could not leave the field as they waited to be screened to write the examination.

An applicant from from Cross River State said they were desperate to get the job and would withstand anything to get it.

“As it is, I don’t mind if we are recruited and sent to Maiduguri. It is better than not having any job. It is better to die in the war front than to die of joblessness at home. There are no jobs my brother that is why you see me here. It is not that I like it.”

Officials of the Brigade could not be reached for comments.
