Existing dichotomy between HND, BSc worrisome – NAPS

The National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS) has‎ expressed worries over continued discrimination against polytechnic graduates in the country.

The association therefore, called for the review of the Polytechnic Act in order to fast-track the abolishment of the dichotomy in some government parastatals and ministries.

The national president-elect of NAPS, Sunday Asuku, told journalists in Kaduna that NAPS received the sad news of alleged exclusion of HND holders from the last civil servants promotion examination, which held from December 17–20  at Abuja.

“The promotion examination was meant for all civil servants on Grade Level 14 migrating to grade 15 and beyond but they still discriminated against polytechnic graduates.

“The Ministry of Education is hiding under the flimsy excuse that they are yet to get the implementation circular/memo from the Head of Service,” he said.
