Scrap Of HND/Degree Discrimination In Four Agencies, Spark Jubillation

FG

There was jubilation in some government agencies on Tuesday, May 14, as the federal government terminated the dichotomy between the Higher National Diploma and university degrees.

The end of the discrimination affects all the services under the ministry of interior.

The agencies affected are the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) and Federal Fire Service (FFS).

Daily Trust reports that before now, personnel with HND certificates were employed into the inspectorate cadre while those with Barchelor’s degree certificate are in the superintendent cadre.

The new policy now has HND holders being in the same superintendent cadre like their counterparts from the universities.

A statement by the secretary to the civil defence, fire, immigration and prisons services board, Al-Hassan Yakmut, confirmed the development adding that the approval came after a meeting on May 9 and 10.

“The board has constituted a technical committee to work out modalities for the implementation, including the harmonisation of ranks in accordance with the abolition,” he said.

The head of civil service of the federation, however, noted that someone who holds an HND cannot be promoted above level 14, except such a person acquired an additional degree for the purpose to officer cadre that can only terminate at grade level 17
