Buhari's government cancels dichotomy between HND and university degrees.


- There had been clamour from education rights groups as well as workers for the removal      of the differences between HND and university degrees

 - The federal government, headed by President Muhammadu Buhari, finally succumbed to       pressure and announced the removal in all of its services 

The Nigerian government has reportedly stopped the dichotomy between holders of university degrees and Higher National Diploma (HND). 

This regularization that comes after many years of agitation, is now to be implemented in all government services. 

Channels Television reports that the decision was reached after a meeting of the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Board (CDFIPB) and chaired by the minister of interior, retired Lieutenant General Abdulrahman Dambazau.

“The board has directed that all officers with HND to be upgraded to COMPASS 08, which is the salary Grade Level for holders of degree certificates at entry point.

“While the nomenclature for the HND holders will start with the rank of Senior Inspector, the Degree holders are with the rank of Assistant Superintendent II,” a statement from the permanent secretary of the ministry, Abubakar Magaji, said.

The board also approved the commencement of the 2017 promotion exercise for all the services and that this would commence with effect from July 17. 

The report further said the establishment of the Institute of Domestic Security was also approved by the board to boost internal security mechanism in the country. 

The federal government also approved a re-organisation of the Nigeria Immigration Service saying this was in line with the provision of the act that set it up. 

The report quoted the minister as saying the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration places a high premium on the welfare of its workers. He urged the workers to show their appreciation by improving on their performances and dedication to duty.

The chairman of the committee, Sen Binta Garba, commented on the process in Abuja saying: "Again what we are doing as a committee on tertiary institution; we are trying to come out with a conference on legislative agenda on education.

We are trying to look at all other summits on education, trying to look at policies of government on education and trying to see how we can have a balance."

It started in the early  hours of the day, around 7:36am when the previous day birthday celebrant (Ganiyu  Olamide) picture  on the group page was changed.  Lovers of the celebrants reacted and the whole  shenanigans  started on the last day of the semester. According  to a class member, he was expecting  to see messages  like farewell, journey mercy, love you, missing you already, my kiss kiss, my uncrushable candy and crush able strawberry but felt so sad reading messages  full of curses and abuses.  After so many appalling messages, one of the administrator removed everyone on the class page and shut it down.  What is the reaction of the class Governor, Deputy Governor, Class monitor, and other Elder statemen?????

Writing One Paper Is Not The Board Standard, so students should prepare for two papers per day -Pelumi Oyelami

Mr Oyelami when meeting with  the members of the  Press club, advised the students  to go and read for their examinations  and stop  being  lazy.

Students are here to read irrespective  of the arrangement  of the timetable, they should  go and read,  come to  the examination  centre and pass.

Writing two papers per day is a form  of training, writing  one paper is not the standard  with the board,so students should prepare  for two.

When the board releases their timetable, the school does not complain,  and the students  read their books, face the exam and they pass so why will they be forming  lazy in the school.  We will  maintain  the appropriate  standard  in this school.

Notwithstanding  steps has been  taking on the correction  of the examination  timetable of 200level students. It is with the Head of school to decide,i have done my part as the Academic  affair  Officer.
