The House of Representatives has passed a bill abolishing the dichotomy between Higher National Diploma (HND) and Bachelor’s of Science (BSc) degree holders in the country.

The bill passed during the plenary on Tuesday was sponsored by Representatives from Gombe State, Ali Isa, and Edward Pwajok from Plateau State.

The legislation, which had been in the chamber since April 2017, seeks to end perceived discrimination against polytechnic graduates and remove the challenges faced by HND holders, especially those in the public service.
