President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to sign the Higher National Diploma (HND) and Bachelor’s Degree (BSc) dichotomy bill.

The Senate passed it in June after a report of the Joint Committee on Establishment and Public Service, Tertiary Institutions and TETFund.

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) has urged Buhari to give his assent to the legislation.

In a communique after a meeting, the President, Adebanjo Ogunsipe, commended the National Assembly for their action.

Ogunsipe noted that Buhari’s assent would ensure the growth of polytechnic education in Nigeria.

However, SSANIP expressed disappointment about the non-payment of salaries of some state polytechnics workers.

Ogunsipe listed Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Owo, Ondo (11-month unpaid salaries) and Osun State Polytechnic in Iree, Osun (30-month unpaid half salaries).

Others are College of Technology, Esa-Oke in Osun (30-month unpaid half salaries) and Abia State Polytechnic in Aba, Abia (28-month unpaid salaries).

  Buhari prays for everlasting peace, security in Nigeria

SSANIP further condemned,”the unrepentant and seeming deliberate poor funding of polytechnic education by some state governments
