FG Abolishes Degree-HND Dichotomy In Civil Defence, Immigration


The Nigerian government has abolished the dichotomy between holders of Bachelor’s Degree and those with Higher National Diploma (HND) in all the Services under the Ministry of Interior, afriupdate News has learned.

According to the Secretary to the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB), Al-Hassan Yakmut, the approval was given after the board’s meeting on 9th and 10th of May.

With this new policy, the HND holders will now be moved from the Inspectorate cadre to Superintendent cadre without obtaining any degree certificates as the case was before in the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Prisons Service and Federal Fire Service.

“The board has constituted a technical committee to work out modalities for the implementation, including the harmonisation of ranks in accordance with the abolition,” Yakmut said.
