The LASU Certificate Found At Suya Spot Invalid – Management

The management of the Lagos State University has broken its silence on the trending certificate found at a ‘suya’ spot in the state.

According to the university in a statement on Tuesday, the certificate has been invalidated because it has the incorrect spelling of the bearer’s name.

The management further affirmed the certificate in question exists but was invalidated on February 25, 2013, because the graduate’s surname was incorrectly written as ABISOYE instead of ABIOYE.

“The University, having recovered the certificate on November 21, 2018, wishes to make the following clarifications: The certificate in question exists but was invalidated on February 25, 2013, because the graduate’s surname was incorrectly written as ABISOYE instead of ABIOYE,” the statement read.

LASU, however, confirmed that a new certificate with the correct surname was issued and collected by the graduate on September 30, 2014.

The university maintained that according to its policy, the invalidated certificate should have been shredded immediately after re-issuance. However, due to an oversight, it ended up in the public space.

“The invalidated certificate got into the public space due to improper screening of office waste papers prior to disposal,” the statement concluded.

Recall that the certificate belonging to an engineering graduate of the institution hit the internet on Wednesday after a man requested to connect with the bearer because it was used to sell soya to him.

The certificate in question belongs to Abisoye Azeez Oluwaseun, who graduated with Second Class Honours (Upper Division) in Chemical and Polymer Engineering from LASU.
