Meanwhile, the management of the Academy has confirmed the review of fees payable by cadets of the Academy.

The Rector has also appealed to the kitchen staff of the Academy, to ensure that cadets are not only served the best quality of food but the food should served in hygienic environment
His words “I therefore appeal to you to help me ensure that foods you cook and serve these children (cadets) are up tom standard. These children are my children; they are also your children, they are your brothers, please, treat them as such.
“We should not compromise standard and quality. We should only accept the food we want from our suppliers and not what the suppliers want us to accept”.
Speaking further, he said that the management had procured nine serving points where cadets’ food will be served while urging the kitchen staff to always disinfect the kitchen area refectory floors before and after every meal is prepared.
