Students of Aliko Dangote College of Nursing and Midwifery Bauchi have protested the purported reappointment of Hajiya Rakiya Saleh as acting provost following the expiration of her first tenure of office.
LEADERSHIP learned that Hajiya Rakiya Saleh had handed over the affairs of her office to the deputy provost of the college.
However, students of the college were allegedly instigated to protest the reappointment of the provost in an acting capacity by some of their lecturers who did not like Hajiya Rakiya’s appointment.
An ND II Nursing student of the college who spoke to LEADERSHIP on the condition of anonymity said they were receiving lectures when they were suddenly asked to go to the gate of the school with placards already designed for them.
They said they don’t have anything against the reappointment of Hajiya Rakiya as provost if that was what Governor Bala Mohammed wants. “That’s the problem of the management of the college or union of the staff, not us,” a protesting student said.
The chief security officer of the college, Hamza Abubakar said normalcy has returned to the school while the students were sent back to their classes. He said there was no act of vandalism in the school as security operatives did well to control the students.
