The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, has pleaded with the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) to sign into law the bill to abolish BSC/HND dichotomy before he hands over power on May 29, 2023.
Comrade Anderson Ezeibe, National President of ASUP who made the call in an interview with newsmen in Abuja yesterday, said the dichotomy had made young Nigerians not to be interested in polytechnic education in the country.
“We are urging President Buhari to go ahead and sign that bill into law. That is another way of saving this sector. As we speak, the Roman figures are dropping significantly so because the sector is losing its attraction to young people.
“So we expect him to sign this bill. Other stakeholders in the sector have also been calling for him to do so. It will be an enduring legacy if Mr. President succeeds in doing this before he leaves office.”
