    Please I need help from you. Concerning change of name of the WAEC certificate. Although, I have seen your post concerning it, on your site, but I still have question which are seriously bothering that I want to ask
    I made mistake in my name….

    My name on the certificate is… *Rasaki Jamiu Oluwatayo*… But that last name *Oluwatayo* is wrong.. it is supposed to be *Omotayo*..

    I was looking at if it’s possible I change it to the correct one..
    But, someone told me that it is only correction on the names…like, want the person said….was that.. Correction can done only if one made mistake in the order at which the alphabets are arranged
    For instance if name was misspelled…
    But I want to change it from *Rasaki Jamiu Oluwatayo* to *Rasaki Jamiu Omotayo*..

    That means I am only changing *Oluwatayo* to *Omotayo*
