There is no need for this bill. I am even disappointed with the contribution of the professor. The truth is that whether in the civil service or in the private sector, such dichotomy expressed by the legislators die out rapidly after level 10 in the civil service and its equivalent in the private sector. Why? As a professional, you are mandated to get professional registration for further relevance in the establishment or organization.

For Engineers, you are supposed to register with the Nigerian Society of Engineers and Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria. Accountants are supposed to register with Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria. Builders are supposed to register with Council of Registered Builders of Nigeria. The same applies to bankers, etc. Every profession has a registration body.

No Ministry, Corporation or Company discriminates against any registered professional. All registered professionals are rated on the basis of corporate membership or fellowship and performance on duty. That is the truth.

There has been no restrictions for professional registration against HND or BSc holders. The only restriction is personal. Individuals who have failed to qualify imagine discrimination whereas those who have passed and are registered do not. The import is that professionals must thrive to sit for and prepare well to pass the qualifying examinations and interviews. Polytechnics are not supposed to award BSc and universities are not supposed to award HND. Let the status quo remain.
God save Nigeria.
