Nigerian Prisons, Fire Service, Immigration And Civil Defence Yanks Out Degree/HND Disparity

The Ministry of Interior has announced the removal of enrolment disparity between holders of Bachelor’s degree and those with Higher National Diploma (HND) in all the services under the ministry.

Al-Hassan Yakmut, the secretary to the , Fire, and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) made the announcement in a stament issued on Tuesday.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Prisons Service and Federal are to compile with this new directive forthwith,
Before now, personnel with HND certificates are employed into the Inspectorate cadre while their colleagues with Bachelor’s degree certificate are in the superintendent cadre.


However, 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 now.

“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.

This is coming just over a year after the board upgraded the entry point for HND holders into the Services from Grade Level 7 to Grade Level 8 just like the Bachelor’s Degree holders.
