The Management of the University of Benin, UNIBEN, Edo state has urged graduates of the higher institution of learning to collect their certificates.
The university management made this appeal recently in a statement through the office of the registrar.
The Acting Registrar, C.I, Ehigiator in the statement said the institution is dismayed that many graduates of the university are yet to collect their certificates, thereby increasing the cost of storage and the burden of preservation of the uncollected certificates.
He statement reads:
