Nigeria Senate passes law to abolish HND/BSC dichotomy

The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday passed a bill to abolish the discrimination between holders of Higher National Diploma (HND) and Bachelor of Science (BSc) from tertiary institutions. Senate president Ahmad Lawan said the passage of the bill will serve as a motivation to HND holders from polytechnics.



“This particular (HND discrimination) issue has been on the front burner for a long time,” Lawan said during Wednesday’s plenary.

“I recall that in the House (of Representatives) between 2003 and 2007, this was one bill that was so important and it is a way of encouraging our polytechnic graduates.

“This should not take away the kind of training they give but should be a motivation for our polytechnic graduates.”

The bill, sponsored by Ayo Akinyelure (PDP, Ondo Central), proposed to resolve the controversy over wage disparity and gross discrimination against HND holders in the public and private sectors of the economy.
