Nigerian Navy has opened the online portal for the 2022/2023 recruitment exercise.

Interested applicants can visit the Nigerian Navy recruitment portal www.joinnigeriannavy.com to fill out the application form and submit it online.

Nigerian Navy spokesman Commodore Adedotun Ayo-Vaughan last week said the recruitment was part of plans by the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Adm. Awwal Gambo to provide the needed manpower for the naval operations.

“The Nigerian Navy has made recruitment and engagement of men and women a top priority to build up its human resources on annual basis,” Ayo-Vaughan said.

“Just last Saturday, 1,008 ordinary sailors graduated from the Nigerian Navy Basic Training School (NNBTS) in Onne, Rivers after six months of rigorous military training,” he said.

Ayo-Vaughan said that recruitments of personnel into the service were being carried out based on available resources and infrastructure.

He said that the recruitment was being handled expertly to ensure that people who served jail terms and those with questionable character were not recruited into the navy.
