CAC: My Friend Went To Pick Up His Company Certificate & This Happened by inforesource: 6:14pm On Feb 15, 2018
Hi everyone, my friend shared this experience with me and I told him something was fishy about this.

My friend filed for a company name and it was approved, paid for and processed. On the 9th of February CAC sent him a mail that he should pick up his certificate from the office he processed the name, which is Aluasa, Lagos branch. On getting there he was handed a letter dated 4th of February that his registration was rejected on the ground that there is existing company with similar name. NB: Please note the two dates above.

So I decided to do public search on the name lo and behold, I did not see such name. Moreover, I was wondering though, if it is possible for someone to process company to the point of certificate collection before CAC will discover that such company has similar name?

Please expert in the house help me to assess this case. Is there corruption in this process? See below the result of the public search.


The company name in Question is Datapower Technologies Ltd with RC No: 1468749 and the one alleged to be in existence is Datapower Technology Ltd with RC: 995253.

The later is not in public search.

Send CAC customer care a mail forwarding your complaint since the letter was issued to you by your collection point and not directly from the headquarter. However such mistake is a rare one since you have been issued a registeration number already

Thanks for your response @kinibigdeal, my friend attached the above document and sent it to CAC via email and they claimed that the letter is from them. It was from that point I decided to make it Public on his behalf because I really felt bad about it. Is this what the Federal Government call Ease of Doing Business?

I will follow this one to the end. I will get the last email sent by CAC asking my friend to pick up his certificate dated 9th of February, 2018. What nonsense!

Hello, I understand you're pained and all but you have to read the Company and Allied Matters Act and also the caveat clearly stated in the registration portal.
Anyway, I understand the frustration but I fear the worst you can do is write to them for refund if your client is not interested in substituting the name. The reason is that, you cannot force CAC to register an already existing name...

PS... Not all company names are on cac website... Regards

Brother, please do Cac actually refund their clients? I have been waiting for my refund for more than a year now

Thanks @jimihendrix, but I think we have submitted ourselves to abnormalities in this country. We have given way to incompetence and mediocrity in this country. CAC has its Acts, but that Act, I am sure does not support incompetence. My friend paid for Availability, which gives CAC the time to check if the name applied for is in existence or not. That stage was passed, certified and the name approved. Only for them to come and tell you at the end of the day that the name in question is not available.

Are they going to pay for the time they wasted, the business card and letter head done on the approved name, the company zeal and the rest?
I am of the opinion that such incompetence should and must be stopped.

Hi Nairalanders, we should not keep quiet on this matter because tomorrow it may happen to you. Lala should push this topic to the front page so that more explanation can be given to this.

CAC should provide my friend with the company they said had the same name. We have gone through the public search and we cannot find the name and they also did their search before approving the name. Please they need to do justice to this.

Do you have an idea if one's certificate can be sent to one's home address on request?

Hello all,

I registered for a business name on the CAC website few weeks ago. I went through the entire process of name submission, payment, download and filling of forms, uploading the forms and payment details.

The registration went through because when I log in the CAC site, it says REGISTERED.


But they are yet to send email to this effect or even tell me where and when I can pick up my certificate.

Please help.

Thank you.
