The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has indicated interest to partner with the Nigerian Postal Agency (NIPOST) for the delivery of certificates in Nigeria.
Mr Patrick Areghan, WAEC’s Head of Nigerian National Office (HNO), indicated the plans during his visit to the Postmaster-General, Dr Ismail Adewusi on Thursday, November 6.
According to Areghan, the examination body was also interested in exploring NIPOST logistics such as using its locked up vans to deliver WAEC documents nationwide.
He noted that the certificate delivery service will ease the process for those who have sat for WAEC examinations in the past and are yet to collect their certificates.
According to him, the body wants such people to be able to apply for their certificates and have them delivered to their doorsteps anywhere in the country through NIPOST services.
Areghan stressed that the collaboration will be particularly helpful in Cross River State where its office was recently burnt by hoodlums during the #endSARS protest in Calabar.
The Postmaster-General and NIPOST Chief Executive Officer Dr. Ismail Adewusi welcomed the partnership proposal.
He commended the council for its achievements and hailed Areghan for his strides since his appointment as the HNO.
“NIPOST has a lot of abundant opportunities to leverage on for the organization to deliver on its mandate,” he said.
