Nyampa, therefore, noted that graduates who do not have the interest to serve as military personnel should be allowed to venture into other endeavors after the mandatory one-year training and service in the Nigerian army.

He, however, sought government consideration in enlisting fresh graduates into the Nigerian Army.
