FG ABOLISH HND/B.SC DISCRIMINATION IN FEDERAL MINISTRY OF INTERIOR; IT IS DANGEROUS, UNETHICAL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

By Jakara Jakara

Federal Government should end the discrimination witnessed between HND

& B.Sc. holders in federal ministry of interior (Prisons, Immigration,

Civil Defence) in order to increase productivity and discourage

unforeseen dangers among these two graduates.
• HND (Inspectorate Cadre), while B.Sc. (Superintendent Cadre).

• Entry Level for HND is G/L 7, while a fellow Graduate with B.Sc. is G/L 8.

• Terminal Point for HND is G/L 13 while B.Sc. is to the highest G/L.

• HND or inspectorate cadre ranks are confusing, while superintendent

ranks are normal ranks/recognized ranks in military/paramilitary

agencies.
• Above all, HND holder in this Ministry of Interior are regarded as

artisans with WASC or Trade Test.
It is shameful that staff of Ministry of Interior no longer

concentrate on their duties, rather focuses on getting more

certificates by hook or by crook in order to get more ranks or to be

in superintendent cadre.
It is obvious to state that other security agencies like; Nigeria

Military, DSS, Nigerian Police, etc do not discriminate in ranking

between HND & B.Sc. Holders.
There might be a bloody clash one day between these two cadres if

federal government fails to urgently address this discrimination.
