By ISA SAIDU, Dutse.

At least, 74 graduates of Rawafid International College of Health Technology, Dutse in Jigawa State, have cried out over non issuance of operating license from the National Council of Colleges of Nursing and Lab Students of Nigeria.

The students at a news briefing in Dutse called on the Jigawa State Ministry of Health, and Medical Laboratory Council of Nigeria to quickly intervene, and investigate the management of Rawafid College of Health Technology over the non-issuance of operation licenses after their graduation three years ago, as well payments of N5.4 million being  induction, license charges , among other miscellaneous expenses of the seventy four graduates of the college.

The agrieved students made the call through the  Student Union Government (SUG) President, Comrade Idris Abdulfatai.

“We have protested against our school authorities non challant attitudes and insensitive to our plights for withholding our operating licenses two year’s after graduation”

According to Comrade Idris Abdullatif, the school sent them to Zaria, in Kaduna State, for induction, instead of Dutse.

According to him on reaching to Zaria, we were not inducted nor awarded with operation license, on inquiry we were told that our fees has not been remitted to the School’s account by the Provost of our Institution, the Rawafid College of Nursing and Lab Sciences Dutse.

When contacted, the Provost of Ruwafid College of Health Technology and Laboratory Sciences Dutse, Dr. Mustapha Al’amin pleaded with the graduating student’s over the lapses, saying it wasn’t been deliberate but due to a minor hitch that occurred between the school’s Management and the National Medical Council as a result of communication gap, adding that the whole problem has been resolved.

He assured the graduating students of getting their induction and license by first week of January 2024.
