The Federal government is finally approaching to end the existing qualifications dichotomy between the Higher National Diploma (HND) and bachelor’s of science (BSc) degree holders in the country.
Naija News reports that the House of Representatives in this vein has already passed a bill abolishing the existing dichotomy between the two sets of Nigerian graduates.
The bill was passed during Tuesday’s plenary.
The bill reads as thus; “bill for an act to abolish and prohibit dichotomy and discrimination between first degrees and HND in the same profession.”
The bill which was sponsored by Ali Isa and Edward Pwajok from Gombe and Plateau states respectively had since April 2017 been passed for second reading.
The bill seeks to end the long-aged discrimination against polytechnic graduates and remove the challenges faced by HND holders, especially those in the public service.
…….more details to come.
