The Nigerian office of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said the council will no longer use manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates who sat the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) from 1999 till date.

This followed the launch of the examination body’s Digital Certificate Platform for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.

In a statement yesterday by the council’s acting Head of Public Affairs, Moyosola Adesina, WAEC urged its stakeholders and the general public to utilise the digital certificate platform to ease the bottlenecks associated with the manual access and confirmation system.

“The WAEC Digital Certificate Platform allows candidates to access, download, and share their original WAEC certificates. Institutions and organisations can also promptly and securely confirm the certificates of candidates.

“Note that certificates accessed and shared through the platform are authentic and sourced directly from the WAEC database.

“We kindly request that institutions, organisations, agencies, embassies, high commissions, among others, provide email addresses for the digital sharing, receiving, and verification of certificates,” the statement said.
