  1. good day Nigeria, this is my story, Nigerian NAVY is not a place to get into if you don’t have any influence, i sat for army exam 3 good times and i was never given any hope for Admission i was declined and with the level of my intelligence i knew very well that i passed the exam but how they manipulated things it really surprise me, i further took another form on the following year but still the same thing and on the third time i was searching on the internet when i saw a guy post concern how to call Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas with this number +2348062594081 OR 08070574555, after much talk with him my life changed for the better. even if you name did not come out, just try and call him, if you want to join them for the training that will commence very soon, now am in the NIGERIA NAVY.
