HND/BSc Dichotomy Removed by FG


At last, the Federal Government has approved the abolition of dichotomy that hitherto, existed between BSc Holders and HND holders in the civil service. This was contained in a circular dated March 26, 2018 which was conveyed by the Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita.

The circular indicated that NCE approved entry point of SGL 08 for Higher National Diploma (HND) holders in the civil service. It also encouraged serving HND officers to fulfill all specified conditions as contained in scheme of service and extant rules for career progression beyond SGL 14.

The dichotomy had, hitherto, restricted the polytechnic graduates to a particularly Salary Grade Level (SGL) in the civil service. It took the intervention of the National Council on Establishment (NCE) to resolve the matter in their favour.

Meanwhile, beneficiaries of the recent abolition of the disparity have commended President Muhammadu Buhari, for his support which brought an end to the BSc/HND dichotomy era.

President of the umbrella body of the beneficiaries, the Nigerian Association of Technologists in Engineering (NATE), Ahmad Yabagi, told journalists, at a press conference in Abuja, that the decision has opened a great career door which no adversary can shut.
