UPDATE: How Borno School Suspended 30 Nursing Students For Not Welcoming Buhari During President's Visit

At least 30 students have been suspended by the management of the Borno State College of Nursing and Midwifery for refusing to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari when he visited the state on June 17.

A letter of suspension from the college to one of the students obtained by SaharaReporters showed that they were suspended for one week from June 21 to June 28 over the action.

The letter reads, “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).

“You are expected to report back to college on the 28th of June 2021 along with your parent or guardian.”

Speaking to SaharaReporters, a staff member of the school said about 30 students were affected.

“Thirty of the students were suspended, not one. I don’t know when it now became compulsory to go and greet the President in the sun. Even we staff members were forced to go and welcome him,” he said.


SaharaReporters had on June 17 reported that the state governor, Babagana Zulum, paid N350 million to mobilise the crowd for the visit of Buhari to the state.

It had been exposed that the governor considered the spending necessary to ensure that the Nigerian leader was not booed during his official visit to the state on Thursday.

SaharaReporters had reported that there were fears ahead of the President's visit that he would be greeted by protesters or booed because of the insecurity in the state.

"It cost Zulum N350 million to mobilise the crowd they touted as Buhari's supporters," a source in Borno State government had told SaharaReporters.

"When President Buhari visited Lagos last week, they had to fly him over the city in a chopper because of a hostile crowd," another source had added.

Governor Zulum had earlier urged residents to show appreciation to President Buhari during his visit.

The governor in a statewide broadcast on Tuesday gave reasons the people of the state should honour the President when he arrived in Maiduguri.

Borno is the epicentre of insurgency war in Nigeria.

The state has been at the end of incessant deadly attacks by terrorist groups–Boko Haram and the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP), and many residents have grown frustrated with the Buhari government.

Ahead of his election in 2015, Buhari promised to defeat Boko Haram but six years into his government, that promise has not been fulfilled.

In February 2020, residents of the state booed the President as his convoy drove in and when it was leaving Maiduguri, Borno State, during a condolence visit.

The residents were heard shouting in Hausa “Bama so, ka samu a kunya.” Meaning “We don’t want you, because you have disappointed us.”

Buhari, during his recent visit to Borno, however, said he was committed to serving Nigerians as a result of the love shown to him.

There are rules of engagement and acceptable methods of dismemberment.

While the students might have taken it too far, I feel whoever revealed the finding is just seeking for unnecessary attention.

To those quoting me, there's absolutely nothing wrong in going to greet the president. It's called decorum. It doesn't mean you're his fan. Remember Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego? They attended Nebuchadnezzar's meeting but held on to their convictions.

I'm fully in support of IPOB, ESN and MNK.
And my dot Nation. And BTW, the president didn't visit the East. Easy on me, brothers.

Like I said in the previous thread concerning the suspension of these nursing students,we Nigerians are a bunch of one modafvcking hypocrites.....We may tend to criticize those students for making such a bold move which majority of us only come online to make....

Give 90% of the Nigerian masses their freedom of expression,I bet you you'd be surprised to see the number of Nigerians who would boldly come out and throw Stones at bubu and his puppets

They may only have been suspended but they can't take away their lives...

I hope you can see what money can do?

Rotten country where thieves compete to see who steals and spends more on useless things.

I am still struggling to come to terms about the authenticity of this report as it sounds bizarre. Some part of this country is still living in the medieval era and a lot of work has to be done to bring them up to speed with the rest of the country. cry


SaharaReporters had on June 17 reported that the state governor, Babagana Zulum, paid N350 million to mobilise the crowd for the visit of Buhari to the state.
Quite sad that this Prof is a disgrace to the academic community.
