Viral video: LAUTECH graduate who returned certificate gets N500,000 from school. 


The Graduate of Agricultural Extension and Rural Development of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Osunleke Alaba, who returned has reportedly received a cheque of N500,000 from the school’s alumni association.

Alaba had trended in a video few days ago after he approached the university in tears for not being able to get anything with the certificate he got from the institution many years after graduation.

Happy Diamond Age

He said his parents took loans to fund his schooling but could not continue to sustain him even as he maintained that his actions were not social media stunts.

His words, “I returned the certificate because it had no impact on my existence. I asked for a refund of the fees paid on school so I could use it to build my talent and live a meaningful life.

“I am an entertainer and even won the MTN talent hunt award during my service year in 2016.

“I have continued to struggle in life such that the opportunities I am getting is to do money rituals but I don’t want to do such. I want to be useful to Nigeria, my family, myself and to God.

“I am married with two kids; my dad is 90 years old but I continue to borrow money from him rather than give him. He told me that he took loans to fund my education and hasn’t refunded them and cannot continue to borrow money to give me.

“I ask for help in any form. I want to pursue my entertainment career. I don’t want my career wasted.”

Days later, Alaba revealed on Facebook that LAUTECH’s alumni had come to his rescue by presenting him with a cheque of N500,000.

“I hereby seize this medium to express my deep appreciation to the Global Body of LAUTECH Alumni as outstandingly led by the President, Hon. Onilede Solomon popularly known as LIMO, the Board of Trustees, and the Oyo State Chapter of the Association for their presentation of the #500,000 cheque to me today.

“May Almighty God continue to be with you and all members of the Association for their show of love and support. I thank you, once again,” he wrote.
