The management of the Borno State College of Nursing and Midwifery has lifted the suspension on students who allegedly refused to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari when he visited the state on June 17.
About 30 students of the institution were suspended for one week from June 21 to June 28 for failing to welcome the President.
They were also asked to report back to the college along with their parents or guardians.
“You are hereby suspended from the college for one week with effect from today 21st June, 2021 for disobedience of executive order to welcome the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, GCON (on the 17th of June 2021),” a letter of suspension from the college to one of the students, read.
“You are expected to report back to college on the 28th of June 2021 along with your parent or guardian,” the letter issued to the affected students read.
A staff member of the institution confirmed on Friday that the students have been recalled.
“The issue has been resolved. A stakeholders’ meeting was called and the suspension was cancelled.
“In fact, the governor (Babagana Zulum) was very angry because he wasn’t aware of such thing. He called the provost and ordered him to recall the students,” the source said.
