LASU Management Reacts To Degree Certificate Found At ‘SUYA’ Spot 🎊 The Scoper Media 

The Lagos State University (LASU) management has addressed the viral social media posts about a degree certificate allegedly found at a ‘suya’ spot in Lagos, clarifying that the certificate is invalid.

In a statement, the university explained that the surname on the certificate was misspelled, rendering it invalid. The management further detailed that the certificate was recovered on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.

“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 confirmed that a new certificate with the correct surname was issued and collected by the graduate on September 30, 2014. According to university policy, the invalidated certificate should have been shredded immediately after reissuance. 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.
