HND/BSc Dichotomy Removed

 At last, it is with excitement, capital joy amidst jubilation and celebration of over 20 years struggle of Nigerian Polytechnic students and graduates including the staff unions and heads of Polytechnic in Nigeria.

I am pleased to announce to the public that the COUNCIL OF ESTABLISHMENT which comprises of all the head of service of the 36 States of the Federation and the head of service of the Federation approved the removal of this long overdue dichotomy which hinder the career progression of HND holders in civil service in her 39th meeting held in Minna Niger state capital during the week after an exhaustive deliberation, pro and anti deposition which ended with tie vote of 16 against 16 while the head of service of the Federation voted in support as presiding officer after the tie, to earn the Polytechnic sector the victory.

Making the vote 17 pro against 16 anti. Henceforth, This resolution automatically lift embargo on HND holder career progression in civil service as the holder can now rise beyond Deputy Director in civil service as well enjoy all sort of benefits/promotion to the topmost rank due to BSc holders in civil service.

It is on record that this same Council was the sole obstacle for this struggle since year 2005 when President Olusegun Obasanjo pronounced the removal of this dichotomy, the Council called the then president statement a mere pronouncement with out documentation and refused it adoption nor implementation.

It will be recalled that the last meeting of the council which was held at Ilorin kwara state capital witness heavy presence of Nigeria Polytechnic students which I personally led as the National Senate President of NAPS to the council in protest for the need for the council to reconsider her position on the said matter.


A position paper was submitted after the protest as demanded by the then head of service of Federation who was the chairman of the Council, unfortunately, the matter was completely discussed nor concluded at Ilorin until now in her next meeting in Niger state.

The Council often meets every 2 years, On behalf of the entire West Africa Polytechnic students and most especially the Nigeria Polytechnic students, I express sincere gratitude to the head of service of states and that of the Federation who stood for us and with us, the Federal Ministry of Education, the National Board for Technical Education NTBE, Council of Head of Polytechnic and Colleges of Technology COHEADS, Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic ASUP, past and present leadership of National Association Of Polytechnic Students NAPS and by extension the Nigerians Union of journalist for their support all through the struggle.

We look forward for immediate implementation by all state of the Federation, Federal government agencies and departments while I call on all Polytechnic student to join us as we Commence appreciation/celebration.

Immediate past Senate President NAPS, Outgoing Regional President WAPSU

Buhari Orders Oau’s Registrar To Reopen University

There are strong indications that both administrative and academic activities may resume at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, this week, as President Muhammadu Buhari has instructed the university’s Registrar, Mr. David Awoyemi, to announce the reopening of the institution as soon as possible.

This is even as the President has asked the university’s members of the Senate to recommend one of them, who is capable of running the institution as a Vice-Chancellor in acting capacity, for Federal Government’s approval.

In a letter addressed to the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie, through the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, the President directed the Senate not to consider any of the candidates who earlier contested for the position.

UTME 2016: JAMB Lists Conditions to be Fulfilled By Admission Seekers

dibu ojerinde.jpg

The Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, said this in a statement on Sunday.

Ojerinde said, “The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board wishes to state that the latest list of candidates sent to all the tertiary institutions contains candidates who qualified for screening based on the individual institution’s capacity. It’s not in any way an admission list.



“However, if this list is not sufficient for the need of any institution, such institution can source from the omnibus printout earlier sent to them by the board. The public and all tertiary institutions should note that admission will only be approved by the board after appropriate screening of the candidates by the institutions.

“The list, which is made up of candidates, who met the national cut-off point within the set criteria, is sent to the institutions. Again, for purposes of clarity, all institutions that have need for more can source from their omnibus printout as stated above. The candid intention of the board is to ensure that available spaces are adequately utilised.”

The Federal Government had, on Saturday, clarified its ban on Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and the general admission procedure.

Federal Government Clarifies Ban On Post-UTME, Admission Procedure



The Federal Government on Saturday clarified its ban on Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and the general admission procedures, saying it “does not in any way affect the statutory role of the Senate of any University or the academic boards of any tertiary institution conducting its admissions.”

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, stated this in a statement by the Deputy Director (Press and Public Relations) in the Ministry of Education, Mr. Ben Bem-Goong.

He said the clarification became necessary “following conflicting reports in the media over the roles of universities and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board in admission under the new dispensation.”

According to him, the role of JAMB is to conduct the UTME, compile the list of candidates whose scores meet the cut-off marks (180 and above) and send same to the Universities.

The Universities, he emphasised, will shortlist the candidates using the agreed guidelines and thereafter return the shortlisted candidates to JAMB for verification of compliance to guidelines and subsequent issuance of JAMB admission letters.

“For the avoidance of doubt, any screening charges shall apply only to successful candidates who have been issued admission by the universities of their choice. All Universities and JAMB should adhere to this directive”, Adamu stated.

Tension Grips Delta Poly Over Killing Of Student As Police Demands Money Before Investigations

Tension and fears have continued to build up at the Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe-Oghara, Ethiope West Local Government Area (LGA) of Delta State following the killing of a female student by a yet to be identified gunmen last weekend.

The victim was identified as Toju Gbubemi Udu, a statistics student. Her lifeless body was found with a handbag containing her personal items at the polytechnic's staff quarter junction in mysterious circumstances.

Speaking with SaharaReporters, a student from the same department as the victim disclosed that Ms. Udu had planned to attend the beauty pageant commemorating the polytechnic students’ celebration.
SaharaReporters reliably learned that the Ms. Udu was killed by a notorious armed gang known as the "Ghana Burgers," based in Sapele.

According to sources, men of the Nigeria Police Force have allegedly demanded money from the victim’s family before any investigation could be carried out to unravel the circumstances surrounding the killing.



"Just yesterday, a 15-year-old old girl was kidnapped in Oghara by these reigning 'burgers’ and when the case was reported, the police requested for fuel money to commence investigation, which the poor mother could not provide,” one source stated.

Meanwhile, Itsekiri students in the polytechnic have called on the State Commissioner for Higher Education, Jude Sinebe, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, the Divisional Police Officer of the Oghara police station, the Rector of Delta State Polytechnic, Oghara and the Student Union Government (SUG) to investigate the death of Ms. Udu and bring justice to the perpetrators.

The students also notified civil society organizations such as the Concerned itsekiri Social Media Activists (CISMA), National Association Of Itsekiri Students (NAIS), National Association Of Itsekiri Graduates (NAIG), and Itsekiri National Youth Council (INYC) of the gruesome murder of Ms. Udu.
"Until justice is served on the extrajudicial killing of an Itsekiri young lady by these Ghana Burgers who have taken Sapele as a base to carry out their nefarious and unholy acts upon young people, we shall not relent. I am using this medium to call on well-meaning Itsekiri sons and daughters. This is an injury to one, culminating to an injury to all; the situation surrounding her death is of no essence as the damage has already been done,” one Itsekiri student said.

"To all Itsekiri political office holders, appointed and elected, this is a test of our resolve and together we shall make them hear our voice. No one shall spill the blood of an innocent Itsekiri child and go scot-free. Never. We are using this medium to call on the State government and the security agencies to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to book or else we will shut this State down. I repeat, no Itsekiri child deserves to die in the hands of any one.”

As at the time of filing in this report, calls made to the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Celestina Kalu, were rebuffed.
