LASU promises to clear backlog of certificates within 4 months

LASU-33Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, Vice-Chancellor, Lagos State University (LASU), says the backlog of certificates in the institution will be resolved within four months.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday that a task force would be set up to resolve the issue of backlog of certificates at the university’s External System.

According to him, the management is aware of the problems in the system and is making all efforts to resolving them.

“The task force will search for the profile of students, identify the problems and proffer a solution to them”, he said.

The VC said he had met with representatives of ‎students from all campuses of the institution for cooperation toward resolving the problem.

He explained that he was still using his office at the new faculty of science “because the building is central and as the VC, I can operate from ‎anywhere”, pending the renovation at the Administrative Block.

Fagbohun ‎told NAN that peace had returned to LASU because every member of the community was working together.

He said the nation had no reason to panic because of LASU. “The present administration is working assiduously to restore the lost glory of the institution.

LASU is an institution with staff and students full of potentials. It is an institution bubbling with students that have fantastic skills and ideas to be explored by the world”, the VC said.

NAN recalls that some students of the university’s External System (LASUES) had protested against non-release of their certificates for the past 10 years after graduation.

Some of them complained that they could not get jobs because they could not present their certificates.

Others, who were working, said they were sacked for their inability to produce their certificates.

Others claimed that they were not promoted by their employers because they could not prove their academic status.
