The Senate Committee on Tertiary Education says it is working to balance the differences in the degrees acquired at universities, polytechnics and colleges of education in the country.

The Chairman of the committee, Sen. Binta Garba, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Wednesday that the committee would ensure a balance in qualifications acquired at tertiary institutions.

In her words, “again what we are doing as a committee on tertiary institution; we are trying to come out with a conference on legislative agenda on education.

“We are trying to look at all other summits on education, trying to look at policies of government on education and trying to see how we can have a balance.


“Not every one of us can go to the university because this syndrome or dichotomy between the university, polytechnic and colleges of education, I think we want to streamline it and allow every person that has gone to any tertiary institution to believe that he is not a second class citizen, but a first class citizen.’’

She, however, urged Nigerians not to relent in acquiring education, which she said, had the capacity to reduce poverty in the society.
