The Federal Government has been urged to enact laws that will allow Polytechnics in the country award degrees certificates in Technology. 

The Director, Directorate of Continuing Education, Federal polytechnic Bida Niger State, Dr. Henry Koce made the call while speaking with Radio Nigeria.

Dr. Koce submitted that the polytechnics should continue to award National Diploma certificate, the HND should be converted into degree system.

How long will this issue of BSC/HND linger in Nigeria? It is time favourable decision is taking for HND holders and laws enacted. Why the Senate and HOR silent for this long?
