The National University Commission (NUC) has dismissed the claim that the dichotomy between university and polytechnic certificates has ended.
Chris Maiyaki, the acting secretary of the secretary, said that President Bola Tinubu has not assented to the bill that would put an end to the dichotomy.
According to him, though the agitation has continued and the 9th assembly has passed the bill, there is no law that supports it at the moment.
The NUC acting secretary, Chris Maiyaki, clarified that the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) has not started offering a one-year course to make the Higher National Diploma (HND) equal to a Bachelor’s degree, contrary to reports.
He stated that there is currently no law that has removed the dichotomy between a university degree and the HND.
Despite the growing agitation for the abolition of the dichotomy, the NUC maintains that it still exists.
The report of the NBTE introducing a one-year top-up degree programme in Nigerian Polytechnics is not true.
The NUC emphasized that there is no law supporting the removal of the dichotomy at the moment.
