In what
might gladdens the hearts of past students (both in main and external campuses) of the institution, Prof.
Olanrewaju Fagbohun, new vice-chancellor of Lagos State University (LASU) has
given a reassurance that the ivory tower will expedite action on backlog of
outstanding degrees and certificates in in the next four months.

Speaking
with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos recently, Fagbohun explained
that a task force would be put in place to resolve the perennial 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 that 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.
