Uncollected Certificates: LASU graduates rush to beat deadline, avoid penalty


Graduates are flocking to the Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo campus to beat the October 21 deadline set by the institution for them to pick up uncollected certificates or pay more.

Adekoya Martins, acting Head, Centre for Information ‎, Press and Public Relations, LASU, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday that graduates had started showing up in their numbers.

LASU, on September 30, said that 24,734 certificates of graduates who left the institution over the last 10 years were lying uncollected at its registry.

The university said following the backlog of uncollected certificates, it had decided that affected graduates who failed to collect theirs before October 21 would have to pay ‎N15,000 before doing so.

It said the collection of the certificates had commenced since September 26 but the turnout by the graduates had been very poor.

Mr. Martins told NAN that the situation had changed since the beginning of the week as graduates who finished at the university years back had been rushing in to collect their certificates.

“Though the registry staff have been working round the clock till around 6 p.m. to ensure that all the graduates are issued their certificates on schedule, the queue is still so much,” he said.

According to him, there were indications that they may not even be able to accommodate all the affected graduates before the deadline, which may necessitate a review of the deadline.

‎He, however, urged the graduates who had yet to come for theirs to ensure that they did so before the stipulated time, as extension of time was not guaranteed.
