On Saturday, May 26, 2018, GAF organised a fitness exercise for its recruits with the aim of testing their preparedness.
However, it turned out that most of the recruits were not quite ready, as they failed to pass the Basic Fitness Test (BFT).
Consequently, they were sent packing after being deemed not fit enough to join the armed forces.
The report further states that several others who were on the verge of being sacked eventually redeemed themselves and will part of those to pass out in about a week from now.
Physical, mental and academic soundness are three of the key things that are expected of recruits looking to break into the armed forces.
