The organisation said this in a statement issued by its Head of Public Affairs, Mr Damianus Ojijeogu, yesterday, in Lagos.

WAEC (West African Examinations Council) said it 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 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 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.

“Notification of important information and changes regarding the past, present or future examinations of the council, examination date, time and venue will also be made available through the platform.
