    command secondary school jos,is quite different from other command schools.
    the reasons why cadet is banned is banned in command secondary school jos is as a result of too murch criminal act like robbery,maltreating of civilians,chous among student no respect for civilian staffs.
    despite that cadet is banned still command student receive military traning i see no reasons why the school is banned from cadet upon all the challenges thy face,why the school is called command the student in the school called commandos,the head of the school called commandant,the school having officer in charge of drill{O.I.C},instructors,officers and other military personnel.i will like to call on the attention of {NAEC} NIGERIA ARMY EDUCATION CORPS NAEC COMMANDER and CORP COMMANDER how to resolve this issue and to bring back cadet to command school in general more especially to the new command schools so as to know more about the military and also to impact more discipline and knowledge which is our motto.
