It reads: “I am writing to request for the issuance of 2021 WAEC May/June Certificate of JOSEPH-ODUNTAN OLUWATOMISIN DANIEL with examination number 4311440933 which was omitted .

“Sir, the total number of registered candidates for that examination year, from our school was fifty-three (53) while a candidate IYIOLA AISHAT AYOMIDE with Examination number: 4311449031 was not available for the exam throughout but at the time we came for certificate, we realized only fifty-one (51) candidates were issued instead of fifty-two (52) which was thoroughly counted, confirmed and signed for before departing your office”.

“Sir, this letter also serves as a reminder to the previous letter we have written on the same subject, therefore, we urge the council to take prompt and proactive action about this because the parents of the affected candidate have been on the school’s neck, insinuating and wrongfully accusing the school of withholding their child’s certificate.
” We look forward to receiving a favourable feedback from you, in earliest convenience”.
