The Corporate Affairs Commission urged Nigerians to visit designated courier companies to pick up their certificates and documents before the end of April 2021, warning that it may destroy unclaimed documents upon expiration.
The CAC disclosed this in a statement on Thursday evening, and it read in part:
“Consequently, with effect from 24th July, 2020, the Commission commenced the delivery of all pre-incorporation certificates.
“The Commission has observed that despite repeated calls, some customers are yet to claim their certificates/documents with courier companies.
“To this end, the Commission is appealing to owners of such documents to visit their designated courier companies for immediate pick up on or before the end of April 2021.”
The Commission warned that they may be left with no option other than to destroy the unclaimed documents upon expiration.
