NUC Rejects NBTE Program on HND to Degree Conversion

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has disowned a program initiated by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) aimed at converting Higher National Diploma (HND) to a university degree.
The Acting Executive Secretary of NUC, Chris Maiyaki, described the program as a ruse, emphasizing that the existing dichotomy between first-degree holders and HND graduates has not been abolished.
He warned that the NUC is not a party to, and disavows the so-called Top-up Scheme introduced by the NBTE. Maiyaki urged the NBTE to focus on its core mandate and avoid introducing programs outside its jurisdiction.
