A Lecturer in the department of Mass communication, Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko, Dr Gbenga Abimbola has advocated that dichotomy between university and polytechnic education should stop for national development.

Abimbola while speaking on the Crest breakfast show today said turning polytechnic to university is not necessary because the polytechnics exist to train middle men with necessary practicals.

Also speaking, the public relations Officer of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic Owo, Dr Samuel Ojo said the needful must be done to remove the differences between higher national diploma and university first degree.

Recall that the 9th National Assembly has passed a bill for an Act to abolish the dichotomy between First Degree and Higher National Diploma but not yet signed into law.
