It added that those who sat for WASCCE from 1999 till date would no longer be provided with manual confirmation of certificates or stamping.

The statement read in part:

“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."

WAEC also said that the platform could be accessed online through the council's website, and the mobile version could be downloaded on the Android and IOS app stores.

Embassies and organisations have also been advised to provide emails for digital sharing and verification of certificates.
