Bauchi Governor Tells Nursing Students to Shun Social Vices by katty : April 30, 2018, 06:13:58 PM
Gov. Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State has warned newly matriculating students of the state College of Nursing and Midwifery to shun drug abuse, prostitution and examination malpractice.

‎Abubakar gave the warning on Monday during matriculation of the 256 student nurses and midwives of the college in Bauchi.

‎The governor represented by the state Commissioner for Health, Dr Zuwaira Ibrahim urged them to focus on their studies and shun any social vices that could truncate their future endeavours.



“The state has done a lot to provide the enabling environment for learning in the college.

‎“We, therefore, do not want to compromise standards. You should remember that you are in this institution to learn,’’ he said.

‎He said that the government was doing everything possible to provide the college with facilities to pave way for its accreditation by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The governor urged the tutors to leave up to expectations by impacting the needed knowledge to the students.

‎He said statistics showed that the institution had continued to receive large number of applications for admission on a yearly basis.

Earlier, the Acting Provost of the College, Mrs Rakiya Saleh said the college started its academic activities after securing provisional accreditation from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

‎“With the support of state government, the college became a reality. The Nursing and Midwifery Council will soon re-visit the college to assess the level of preparedness to offer us full accreditation.

‎“We are appealing to the state government to redouble its efforts in putting the required facilities before the visit of the council to ensure full accreditation,’’ she said.

‎Saleh urged the students to be law abiding as it was part of their obligation to maintain law and order as well as protect the college property.   ‎

The provost congratulated the matriculating students for being among the lucky few who scaled through the various selection processes.

‎“I urged you all to work hard and succeed in your academic pursuit in the college,’’ she said.
