Prof HAYAT I.M GOMMA: Nursing and Midwifery Council Withdraws Regulatory Activities at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria
Date Posted: 14/Jun/2019

The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has withdrawn its regulatory activities at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria. This was contained in a memo to the focal officer at the department of nursing sciences at ABU Zaria

According to the memo this decision was taken as a result of violation of the rules and regulation guiding nursing and midwifery education and practice in Nigeria and non-compliance to Council’s directives. The management of the university continued to employ the services of a foreign Nurse who for the past eight years refused to be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria

The memo reads bellows:

Attention: Focal Officer, Department of Nursing Sciences, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna
