It’s relative. Some, and I would say quite a lot, of graduates from Nigerian Universities too cannot even write application letters. Punctuations are so bad - and they are even bereft of Skills needed by employers these days.

Truth is, many Nigerian graduates are unemployable: largely due to the obsolete system of education though - Polytechnic or University alike.

But the discrimination is not in Knowledge - it’s in the ranks and remuneration structure. It’s a subtle way of influencing prospective students to apply to Polytechnics as well - which would at least reduce the huge population seeking a University degree.

If you ask me - it’s a good thing. But overhaul all the curriculums for courses in the UNI and Polys already- it’s not 21st century like!

That is the point.

A university degree is not a paper! taken nothing away from the polytechnic graduates, with all their skills they still need someone who understands the theories that drive the practice and that is why, university graduates should always have an edge. Without theories there's no productivity.
Have you taken a careful examination of polytechnic graduate writing skills?
Please educate me about polytechnic graduate writing skills. I am waiting.

Oga, go and check with ICAN and ACCA for their prize winnerso in Nigeria. That should just be okay to clear your doubts.
University degrees in Nigeria are just nothing but name.. Anyone can just obtain them if serious. Again try and visit MBA classes and find out top performers. Most are polytechnic graduates. Same applies on the job.
I for one select the best candidate in an interview, whether BSC or HND. It is the skills that I am after.

Bro you are getting it all wrong. In the polytechnic system, there is theory as well as practical. After passing through both system ( HND and B.Eng both in Mechanical Engineering), I can boldly tell you that what matters is what you can offer.

Yes, the "SKILL" and that is what Polytechnic is all about, while Graduates are managers of skilled workforce. Don't mix it up. They are not equal, never been equal and will never be. Forget the propaganda. Go and get a degree and stop fruitless internet campaign.
