 * Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike promises an end to HND/BSC dichotomy

It is not uncommon for HND holders to be discriminated against not just by private employers but also by various level of the Nigerian government.

When they are employed into government ministries, fresh HND holders are recruited to Level 7 while fresh BSc holders are recruited to Level 8.

One of the cardinal demands of the striking polytechnic lecturers is the removal of the dichotomy between the two categories of graduates.

The Minister also claimed that other demands have also been resolved and called on the chairmen of the Governing Councils of Federal Polytechnics and Federal Colleges of Education to assist the federal government by deploying their relevant skills towards resolving the lingering strike action of the lecturers.
