While the dichotomy ha hitherto restricted polytechnic graduates to particularly salary grade level in the civil service,it took the intervention of the National council on Establishment to resolve the matter in their favour.
The Head of service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita,in circular dated March 26, 2018,conveyed the decision of the NCE to all concerned and solicited their support implementation.
The circular indicated that NCE approved entry point of SGL08 for HND holders in the civil service.
It also encouraged serving HND officers fulfil all specified conditions as contained in scheme of service and extant rules for career progression beyond SGL 14.
We are glad that this monster called dichotomy that has been; a big threat to the development of technology in Nigeria has been; defeated.
NATE has therefore resolved to support and partner with federal government in the quest to bequeath entrepreneurial skills to Nigerian youths as a means to turn around the economic fortune of Nigeria, he said.
