Daily Trust reports that before now, personnel with HND certificates were employed into the inspectorate cadre while those with Barchelor’s degree certificate are in the superintendent cadre.

The new policy now has HND holders being in the same superintendent cadre like their counterparts from the universities.

A statement by the secretary to the civil defence, fire, immigration and prisons services board, Al-Hassan Yakmut, confirmed the development adding that the approval came after a meeting on May 9 and 10.

“The board has constituted a technical committee to work out modalities for the implementation, including the harmonisation of ranks in accordance with the abolition,” he said.
