The provost, Imo College of Nursing and Midwifery Okporo Orlu in Imo State, Ngozi Duru may face a sack if the recent revelations about the institution are anything to go by.

The state Commissioner for Education, Prof. B. T. O Ikegwuoha who visited the school on Thursday revealed that students in the institution are currently tasked over 400,000 naira for a session, a development he described as outright extortion of the students.

According to the commissioner, the institution had since commenced academic activities without authorization of the state ministry of Education and against the COVID-19 directives as earlier given by the state government.
