Former students of the Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger State, have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently sign the dichotomy bill between the Bachelor’s Degree and Higher National Diploma (HND) into law.

Daily Trust reports that the bill, which was recently passed by the National Assembly has been sent to the president for assent.

Rising from its national delegate meeting which was held in Abuja yesterday, the former students of the Federal Polytechnic said the law would motivate many Nigerians, particularly youths to participate more in the present government’s vision to diversify the economy through technology innovation.

President of the association, Dr. Koce Henry, while briefing newsmen, also charged the national assembly to speed up the passage of the Polytechnic Commission Bill which is currently before the lawmakers.

Henry also called on the President to address the issue of insecurity ravaging the country, particularly in secondary and tertiary institutions.

‘‘We are calling on the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a matter of urgency to sign the dichotomy bill into law.

‘‘We are also calling on the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to look into new ways in reducing the insecurity in Nigeria particularly in our schools,’’ he said.

The alumni also appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics to cooperate with the rector of their alma mater to ensure the institution takes the first position in the country, adding that the union should bring to the barest minimum, the number of frictions that the union is having with the rector of the Polytechnic.
