The University of Calabar (UNICAL) has issued a three-month ultimatum to graduands of the institution who were yet to collect original copies of their certificates.


According to NAN, Gabriel Egbe, registrar of the university, said that there were over 42,000 unclaimed certificates in the various faculties and institutes.

In a statement on Wednesday in Calabar, Egbe said that some of the certificates date back to the 1980s while urging the owners to approach the institution to get them.

“It has been discovered that there are over 42,000 unclaimed certificates of the University of Calabar in faculties and institutes. Some of these certificates date back to the 1980s,” the statement read.


“The University management is shocked by this abnormality, and therefore, directs that all those who have not collected their certificates after several years of graduation should do so immediately.

“Persons who are acquainted with this group of graduands should please, inform them to come for collection.”

In the statement, Egbe also threatened to publish names and subsequently surcharge those who do not comply with the directive by the end of September.


“Those who do not do so before the end of three months from the date of this notice, will have their names published and will be surcharged subsequently,” he said.
