Some of the nursing trainees of Nalerigu College of Nursing and Midwifery captured in a viral video on their knees begging former President John Dramani Mahama may have breached the students’ code of conduct, according to management.
Therefore a full-scale investigation into the incident has been launched.
But management in a statement on Saturday said the incident happened outside campus while some of the students seen in the video are not known.
The video captures scenes from the former president’s Thank You tour of the North East Region.
Aside kneeling to apologise to the NDC flagbearer for not voting for him in 2016, the nursing trainees are seen with placards pledging support for him.
They are also heard rejecting the monthly allowances restored by the Akufo-Addo-led government.
“These students were transported there without the knowledge and approval of the management,” the statement indicated.
“These students have benefited fully from the students trainee allowance, following its restoration by the government.
“That some of the individuals in the nursing trainee uniform are not known to be students of the institution.”
Management, therefore, dissociated from the action of the trainee nurses and insisted that they will be brought to book.
“We also condemn in no uncertain terms, any machinations or manipulations targeted at students of the institution with the aim at making political capital.”
