The dichotomy is unending but what will be will be, (Que Sera Sera)
Your certificate won't determine whether you will make it or not, once you have this in mind the sky is your starting point.
Don't let any policy intimidate you

LibertyRep:
If you are not self employed already and would be seeking for employment after your program, please I beg you in the name of whatever you worship, don't buy that HND form.

Don't make that mistake. Buy Direct Entry form or buy UTME form to start afresh at a conventional University. You also have the opportunity of approaching any Open University study center close to you and explore the opportunities therein available. All of these would eventually make you get a University degree. Worry less about the number of years and fund involved. Please don't buy that HND form.

Don't be fooled by those who will tell you that you can always proof your worth on the field. See, the truth is that you may not even be given the opportunity to proof anything at all. A large percentage of Nigerian employers including the government worship certificates and there isn't any traces that they might change any soon.

Take for instance, Ogun government commenced the sale of ASCON forms for the employment into the civil service of the state and HND holders are barred from partaking in the exercise. Even if you make it to the civil service through other avenues, there's is a level beyond which you can't rise because of your HND background. Why would you want to be subjected to such ridicule? Don't buy that form!


You may also be thinking of doing PGD, Masters and PhD later on. Well some universities wouldn't let you pass the Masters stage. LASU for Instance specifically stated that MED holders with HND and PGDE background are not eligible to apply for PhD. You see, the discrimination is huge and you wouldn't like it later on. Please drop the idea of the HND form.

What I don't understand is why the government and others in charge of our education have not scrapped these Polytechnics. Why would they allow them to churn out products that are not accorded the right respect in the society? Scrap the Polytechnics or at best stop them from awarding HND Certificates forthwith

Don't get carried away with the fact that HND holders are also called graduates and are allowed to partake in the NYSC scheme. See, the euphoria of their 'graduates' status expires with NYSC. If you doubt me, try to pick up a masters form with your HND after your NYSC. The discrimination is huge and you wouldn't like it.

Whilst it is true that some HND holders are doing very very well in their various fields, their percentage is also very very small compared to those battling with the ridiculous discrimination both in public and private establishments. Why would you therefore allow yourself experience such mockery after spending five years pursuing the certificate. (2 years for ND, 1 year for IT and another 2 years for the HND)

It is good to be educated but please be educated properly at least In Nigeria's context. This is because the most ridiculed certificate in Nigeria now is the HND Certificate.

Again, if you don't have a business of your own and would be seeking employment later on, don't buy that HND form. My two cents.

As far Nigeria is concern, Education is a SCAM. Be it HND, BSc, PGD or Masters. My 4 cents

Which reality? The one that there is hardly a good paying job for even MSc Holders or the fact that we are sitting on a time bomb economy.

yeah but the op is only giving logical advice based on the current reality. I have seen firsthand how HND holders are discriminated and getting that degree isn't worth it.
To the last part of your post, ever wondered what the world will be like if we all became employers of labour? Just like you said do what works for you, some people fulfil purpose by serving and helping others. I know we all want to be like Bill G but there's nothing wrong with being the behind the scenes guy
True talk, we all can't be employers of labour.

Well everyone with his/her view, but from my personal experience I feel HND is now gaining from grounds in technological companies mostly foreign owned institute. I happened to work with a Chinese firm as an inbound specialist and behold I was earning way more (60,000) difference from my oga (boss) who happens to be a BSC graduate. So if you get an HND admission bro/sis please go for it.

Op, you are just been bias, when you are giving advise on a particular topic you are supposed to tell us the pro and coin of the topic in concern. You quickly forgot that the Nigeria Custom Service just of recent abolished the dichotomy between HND and BSC or you are out of the country when the National Assembly currently Passed a Bill (which has passed 2nd reading)on this same issue?

this post weak my body.. please lemme tell you the truth the problem of our country is not whether you are an HND or BSc holder the problem is that we have bad leaders even in the UK you can get a job without going to school talk less you now go to school so what am trying to say is that the government should provide more jobs and empowerment for the youth. whether HND or BSc na your determination matter. you success is not attach to your certificate. i rest my case......

Thermodynamics:
B.S.E work and do not work for some.
H.ND work and do not work for some.

I don't think certificate has anything to do with success, success depends on personality, a B.S.E older who is rich, will still be rich as an H.N.D holder and will still be rich even if he is not a graduate. It's either you are going to be rich, or poor, depending on your personality.
B.S.E indeed.
