Civil Service: HND Graduates Can’t Rise Above Grade Level 14-FG Insists



Civil Service

Higher National Diploma (HND), holders in the Civil Service have been thrown into serious problem with a statement by the Federal Government that they cannot rise above grade level 14.

This position was credited to the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita.

According to her, HND graduates cannot rise above level 14 except such a person acquires an additional degree for his or her conversion to officer cadre that terminates at Grade Level 17.

Oyo-Itra reportedly made this clarification while briefing newsmen on some of the achievements of her office under the Change Agenda 2015-2018.

She said:

“This issue of HND/B.Sc dichotomy came up after the last National Council on Establishment and I think a lot of people are still confused about the policy. What was approved by the Council was that henceforth the HND holder can enter at the same level as B. Sc, which is level 08.

“But the issue of where they stop still remains that they will terminate at Grade level 14 unless they are able to acquire additional relevant degree that can now convert them to officer cadre,” she said.
