FG bans polytechnics from awarding degrees
The Federal Government has banned polytechnic and monotechnics from awardinf degrees to students.
In a circular issued by the National Board for Technical Education, the government said it is dismayed by the sheer number of tertiary institutions offering programmes they are not designed to do.
“Polytechnics and other technical institutions in the country should immediately stop admitting students into degree programmes.
“Similarly, polytechnics and allied institutions awarding Nigerian Certificate in Education should restrict themselves to technical courses.
“However, already admitted undergraduates for these programmes should be allowed to round up the programmes into which they are already admitted.
“Institutions have been given a period of four years (up to 2026) to graduate their last set of students for such programmes,” the circular reads.
