  • I am Ali GODWILL KENGONG I have always dream of being a soldier so as to fight for my country. I am 23 years 4 months and now it shows I can’t join the military. We are 8 of us willing and happy to join the BIR but due to the age group we are not able. Please I pleads that it should be raised to 25 years so able men can go in for. If care is not taken, the requested number needed will not be available. As statistics are showing, Buea, Bamenda, and Limbe are not that submitting due to the age limit. I pray and pleads that the ministry of defense should help look into this… Thanks
