Parents and guardians of about 150 students of the School of Nursing ,Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Ido Ekiti, who were made to forfeit their admission status by the authorities of the school, have petitioned the Federal Ministry of Health and the Registrar, Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, alleging sharp practices in the marking of their papers in the examination conducted by the school.
The school authorities had weeded the students by admitting only 50 out of about 200 that wrote the examination.
The Chief Medical Director of the FMC, Dr Lawrence Ayodele Majekodunmi, attributed the action of the school to the students poor performance during the examination to qualify them for indexing.
According to him, most of the affected students were unable to make their resit papers ,even when two different examinations were conducted for their make up.
But, according to the concerned parents in their petition entitled, ‘Atrocities,non -challant attitude and fraudulent practices of the School of Nursing,FMC,’and dated 21st May, 2013, they called on government and the bodies charged with the supervision of the school to act to save the future of the school and affected students.
