LASU PhD Crisis: Lagos Government Clears 17 Lecturers’ Certificates

The Lagos State government has cleared 17
out of the 19 PhD certificates withdrawn by
the management of Lagos State University
(LASU).

LASU

Mr Fatai Olukoga, Special Adviser to the
governor on Education, made the
disclosure, saying that the certificates were
cleared after due process.

Olukoga explained that 19 lecturers were
alleged to have obtained fake PhD
certificates.

He said that the remaining two lecturers
failed to appear for clearance because they
are members of the Academic Staff Union
and their certificates still remained
withheld.

He blamed the management, Academic
Staff Union and Students Union
Government of the institution for the
continuous closure of the institution.

“I cannot see a reason why students will
fight because there is no light on their
campus, do they have light in their homes?
Olukoga said the union members should be
very careful, adding that it was only in
Nigeria that union dictates and have their
way in everything.

He added that the government had paid
N209 million as a refund to students on
hike in tuition fees.

The adviser said that the management of
the institution did not have records for the
remaining balance. (NAN)
