Oludare Alaba, the graduate of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) who went viral a few days ago after he stormed the school to return his certificate and ask for a refund of his fees, has spoken up.
A video of Alaba throwing tantrums at the school reception as he returned his certificate and demanded that all the fees he paid be refunded to him recently went viral and caused a stir online. Read here.
Well, speaking in an interview, the LAUTECH graduate insisted that the certificate has not been useful to him.
According to him, he’s a talented entertainer and he’s confident that if he’s refunded and he diverts it to his entertainment career, he’ll be successful.
“I graduated from the department of Agricultural extension and rural development. What prompted me to return the certificate is that I collected it, it has not been useful to me.
I have been struggling with life and the only opportunity I have seen is for me to do blood money and I said I cannot do blood money because I want to be useful to Nigeria, my family and myself and God my creator.
I told my father to help me get some money. I am an entertainer. I even won an award during my NYSC days in 2016. My father said he cannot help me go and borrow money again because he borrowed some money to send me to school and he is yet to pay back and that he is supposed to be reaping the benefits from me now.
The day he said it to me I cried. When I got tired, I just decided to return the certificate to them since it is not useful to me and then they should give me my money. If I spend my money on my talent, I know I will be prosperous”. He said.
