President Buhari On The Move To End B.Sc And HND Dichotomy

The Registrar of The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has announced that President Buhari is willing to implement the waiver that will end the Bsc and HND dichotomy.

According to him, Buhari has already received the updated report surrounding the Bsc and HND dichotomy last Tuesday.
In his words: “The last administration set up a committee to look at how we can now merge the two, the report was ready but it was not handled by the last administration.”
“The system has not given adequate vision for the other levels of education. We have not encouraged technical education, we have not encouraged Teachers education also, in fact we have not encouraged Agricultural education to the extent that everybody feels that the only way to survive is to go to the University.

“The only way to make it is to have a degree, so I am saying we should revisit our system, we should look at why candidates don’t want to go to polytechnics, and we should look at why they don’t want teachers’ education we should also revisit why they don’t want agriculture.

“By our experience, most people will like to study law, engineering, medicine, accountancy, these are the top courses been sought for in the universities nobody wants to study education. So I see we have problem in that area and I am sure the Federal Ministry of Education is trying to solve that problem.

“First of all Technical Education, there’s dichotomy between Bachelors degree and National Diploma or Higher National Diploma, (HND). It was one of the things presented to Mr. President to find a way of implementing the waver of the dichotomy between HND and the Bsc degree. The so called HND should now be changed to Btech which means Bachelor of Technology.

“Former President Musa Yar’Adua may his soul rest in peace, said he doesn’t have any problem with Btech. Unfortunately, government also has not sorted this entire problem. And there are such cases of people like me in this country, I wouldn’t have been able to read, I wouldn’t have been able to go to school. So what I am saying is, government should look at how we can improve technical education.

“Let me refer to what Oby Ezekwensili the former Minister of Education said, she was determined to implement Btech in our Technical System, college of Education. All this places should be well equipped for Btech.

“Four colleges of Education have been upgraded to universities of Education, you will see the rush into those universities now because they can now get bachelor’s degree. And when they come to the public they will not be a push away. So this is where we are, I think if I go by what we saw on Wednesday, President Buhari and the Vice President listened and they were interested in what we presented.”

My feasibility study object this write up. The academic board of university(ASUU) wouldn't welcome the idea. This is Nigeria we all know how its done. I happen to be a polytechnic student with certificate but right now in university,The difference is clear my people let's stop chasing shadow. BUHARI, university professors wouldn't accept,you can only work on labour market zaga for their counterpart. I rest my case!
  • Abiodun_K: My brother, in as much as d thing follow d proper step, those professors have no right to oppose it.. They can only make noise and Thank God d Vice president (a professor) will be there to silence them

  • Elphata: Nigeria is a country that tag a colour black and will still tell you its made up of white without scientific conclusion. What will be the fate of HND holder when BUHARI tenure expire? Another government ideology#THINk.

It is a welcome idea, at least university sought we reduce and the polytechnic students will study hard to meet up and defend the Btech degree,also the jamb cutoff mark will increase. Thanks to president Buhari for this welcome development, indeed the polytechnic students will be now be challenge to stand out practically to share their experience with other university students.

  • Elphata: Sequel to your write up. There is an adage that I love so much which has been the yardstick towards the sustainability of my relationship with human"The truth is bitter". I can see you're myopic to fact or probably you have spoken on duress but I must tell you that you need not picture it that way. The good news is, "its a nice idea" but the bad news is, "its impossible" I don't feel it when I'm insulted cos I'm used to it. I get it better when I'm taken aback. God bless 9ja and God bless me!

  • Elphata: Happy new month man. The discussion has defiled viability. you have spoken well to the bag of intelligence but the hell of this matter is the government. Let's see what he can do but I keep fit on my words. Learn not to use vulgar languages while debating no matter your grievance. Once again I say good luck to Buhari administration and best of luck to me too. Enjoy your day!

  • Elphata: I have great scholars in UI as friends and also a sister who is a family future Barrister but non of them seems to be ignorant. that remind me an adage that says " an empty barrel make a lousy noise". You look too cool and learned to talk f**lish. well there is a difference between brilliance and intelligence. I still remain my humble self you can't get me mad because I understand your type of person and I know how to deal with you.
