This is a good idea.
But The Polytechnic Ibadan and other Polytechnics can liase with the Federal Government for approval of B.A/B.tec certificate for a successful graduant after the completion of their HND programme instead of issuing HND crtificate.I believe HND and are equivalent,so that the $28,000 can be used to further education like Masters and other degree programme.
Please,don't allow the HND holder to think they are not up to holder.

the federal government must stop this insult. we dont need their degrees. Our goovernment can change HND to degree if thats what we need. White people cannot come and fool us the 2nd time. enough is enough. what the hell of 4.2 million? they are theives. with that money one can set up a good business and live big in Nigeria. Are they not going to use the same teachers of the poly to teach? what kind of day light robbery is this?

I think it high time we set our priority right in this nation.Is it a positive and objective result we need irrespective of the alphabetic difference on the certificate or the alphabetic difference on the certificate?Because, that is all that is to this inconsiderable and irresponsible act by this non strategic Nation.Unfortunately,NBTE is another passive and dormant institution that lacks the will power to carryout it assigned duties(toothless bulldog).If it had been alive to it responsiblities Ibadan poly wouldn't have published these nonsense."4.3m for HND to BSC cnversion" rubbish!

The Ibadan Poly management must have lost focus,missed direction and grossly visionless.These are the same selfish lecturers who agitate for equality with their university counterpart.Their acceptance of this conversion programme is self-defeating,self-destroying,self-downgrading,totallack of self esteem and second fiddle playing.It is stupid and quite unfortunate for you to claim to be equal to your university counterpart while at the same time profess that your product is inferior and need $28,000 and two years to balance up.All those marketing this conversion programme are visionless and purposeless and self-contradictory.Henceforth,no lecturer of Ibadan poly must go on strike on the basis of equal pay with their university counterpart.

This is nothing short of commercializing technical education. Polytechnic graduates are known to be technically sound most times better than their university counterparts. This claim was put to test during my NYSC days several years back when a graduate from a south west polytechnic fixed an electrical fault that occured in one of the rooms in a hall on orientation camp grounds which a so called graduate from a south east university found neck breaking and energy sapping. Plesse stop the dichotomy and dont let the nigerian employers think the two cerificats HND/Bsc are not equivalent. The Federal govt have told us they are indeed the same. This advert is certainly not necessarily, definitely not now that our technical education needs serious attention if we aspire to catch up with the rest of the world. Most developed economies places little emphasis on paper qualifications but more on the skills you possess

I am a polytechnic graduate with a distinction. From my service year and of course in work and in life generally I have related with numerous university graduates some of which are 1st class. The truth in black and white is that I am yet to meet one that really fascinates me intellectually or brilliantly. The truth about this HND/Bsc dichotomy is that it is all a lie in the Nigerian environment context. No university in here makes the world's first 2000 and not even first 30 in Africa. so what is their brag about? In life and work it is about what you can do and what you learn and not about the silly certificate we celebrate like life itself. And as it is the case for us in Nigeria; perhaps it is one of the major reasons, to say the least, that we are, and may forever be mediocre at about everything. $28,000 for HND?Bsc conversion program! Imagine what you can do which such money in business when you are well read and trained not CERTIFICATED. FOLKS, LET'S THINK!!
