The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics (SSANIP) has called on the new administration to address the issue of dichotomy and segregation between holders of Higher National Diploma (HND) and Bachelor of Science degree (BSc) qualifications.
Mr Phillips Ogunsipe, SSANIP National President, made the call during the association’s congress hosted by the Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) branch on Tuesday in Lagos.
According to him, the polytechnic sector at the national level has been battling with the issue of dichotomy, describing it as a discriminatory practice and a great disservice to the country.
He noted that the bill, which was passed at the last 9th National Assembly, abrogating dichotomy between HND and BSC holders, was not signed into law by the last administration.
