The College of Nursing and Midwifery located in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, has suspended a student, name withheld, for failing to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari during his official visit to Borno State.
The student was notified of the suspension in a letter dated June 21, 2021.
The letter is copied below for the perusal of the audience:
Reacting to the ban, a lawyer and human rights activist, Inibehe Effiong, taking to his Twitter handle @InibeheEffiong, asked:
“Can someone tell me what is going on in Nigeria? How do you suspend a student because the student failed or refused to welcome Buhari to Borno State?
“Isn’t this madness for crying out loud? What sort of absurdity and dictatorship is this?”
