Mr. Patrick Areghan, WAEC’s Head of National Office (HNO), announced this at a news conference in Lagos on Tuesday.

The WAEC boss said that the NIN would become a major requirement for registration for WASSCE for school candidates with effect from 2022 and subsequent diets.

”It will be No NIN, no entry,” he stated.
