FG Abolishes Varsity Degree/HND Dichotomy

The Federal Government has finally abolished the dichotomy that, hitherto, existed between university and polytechnic graduates in the civil service. 

Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, in a circular dated March 26, 2018, conveyed the decision of the National Council on Establishment (NCE) to all concerned and solicited their support through its implementation.

The circular indicated that NCE approved entry point of Salary Grade Level (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 SGL in the civil service. It took the intervention of NCE to resolve the matter in their favour. 

President of the umbrella body of the beneficiaries, Nigerian Association of Technologists in Engineering (NATE), Ahmad Yabagi, in Abuja, said: “We are glad that this monster called dichotomy, which has been a big threat to the development of technology in Nigeria has been defeated."
