The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says no amount of blackmail or fraud will stop its latest innovation, in checking the activities of fraudsters, using its recently launched digital certificate platform.

The council’s Head, National Office (HNO), Mr Patrick Areghan, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, in Lagos.

Areghan was reacting to skepticism in some quarters on the ability of the platform to deliver on its stated objectives, with some others discrediting it.

He also clarified on some checks that had been put in place on the platform to prevent misuse and unauthorised access to results of others.

According to him, contrary to the wrong perception of the platform in such quarters, it has been largely successful for persons who have provided the right information.

NAN reports that the digital certificate platform, launched on October 20 by the council, is to check activities of fraudsters, make retrieval of lost or destroyed certificates possible and make access, sharing and confirmation easy, among other benefits.

It is also a response to modern trends, lifestyles of the teeming youth and the technological age in general.

The platform is compliant with global best practices, by ensuring that the data of candidates are protected securely and cannot be accessed by third parties without the consent of certificate owners.

Areghan said it was disappointing that some people were trying to discredit such bold  and globally acclaimed initiative of the  council. NAN
