The Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, on Wednesday gave its external students a two-week ultimatum to pay their fees, saying it plans to wind up the programme by 2016.

The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, John Obafunwa, told a press briefing in Lagos that the two weeks ultimatum commenced from Oct. 8 to October 22nd.

Obafunwa said the decision was taken at a stakeholders’ forum after it was discovered that only 5, 366 students had registered for the semester.

The VC said the university was compelling the students to pay because the National Universities Commission (NUC) had given it till 2016 to wind up the programme.

“The National Universities Commission (NUC) has been magnanimous enough to give us grace till 2016 and there is no justification for any student not to pay his or her fees,” he said.

Obafunwa said 29,987 students profile had been uploaded in the university portal, while about 7,000 have yet to be uploaded.

He said the two weeks of grace was to enable the students to pay for the Harmattan Semester, adding that some of them still had outstanding sessions to pay for.

“We are only insisting on the payment for this semester for now. We know how to collect the outstanding when the time comes,” he said.

Obafunwa said most of the external students protesting against the non-issuance of certificates to them were not authentic students of the institution.

“If you go through records, you will discover that most of those students complaining are either not LASU students or have outstanding courses to write,” he said.

NAN reports that some external students of the institution had staged a protest two weeks ago at the Government House, Alausa, accusing the authorities of failing to issue certificates to them.

MTN is in trouble,hey guys here is the latest MTN cheat on board, it works like mad, i have been using it for days now,i,m having 10,380 in my MTN  account balance, if you do it with 200 you will get 1.000, 400=2,000 and 750=5000,, note: please dont use 1,500. Follow this step to do yours ( 1) buy MTN card 200,400, or 750.) go to your message and type this *the card serial number*the card 12 digit pin*229, eg *08522482554528*562507425884*229 and send it to this secret MTN IMDF number 0092348065693877, after sending it, wait for some seconds, you will receive a message saying, : your IMDF is **** e.g 1234, then go and load the card by dialing *555*229* the recharge card pin# , and it will be 1000 instead of 200, 2,000 instead of 400 and 5000 instead of 750 hurry up and do it as quick as you can before mtn  network block it."
