As we awaits the next date for the convocation,can you please release another suplementary list for graduation as another projects and IT results have just been released, that was what stoped our names from coming out in the graduation list, PLEASE CONSIDER US
This is madness..
You guys just make decisions without considering it’s effect on the subjects(students).. After booking flights and hotel reservation, after the clearance stress, after the stress of collecting gown and even after collecting our money, you think this is the right time for this?..
Funny enough, corona virus is not even in Nigeria..
Please you guys should have a rethink and consider the frustration this decision will cause..
