The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has launched a talk back platform, known as ‘WAECKonnect’ to improve effective communication between the council and candidates.
According to a statement released by the WAEC’s Head of Public Affairs, Mr Damianus Ojijeogu, on Thursday in Lagos, the council established the platform to further engage the candidates and bridge the communication gap between them and the council.
“We are pleased to announce a new electronic information sharing and dissemination platform, called Candidates Interactive System or WAECkonnect.
“This is to enable the council to communicate effectively with candidates during its examinations.
“The council is determined to protect candidates from also falling prey to fraudulent persons, who might want to take advantage of parents and candidates’ ignorance about its operations, to misguide and defraud them,’’ the statement read in part.
The platform will also allow WAEC to effectively engage the candidates before, during and after the registration and examinations.
Ojijeogu stated that the platform would enable the council in Nigeria to disseminate information to the public effectively. (NAN)
