How To Get WAEC Attestation Of Result

He was completely bewildered and didn’t know what to do. But he followed these steps below to retrieve his WAEC result.

I want to make something clear: WAEC does not give out original certificates twice. Conversely, it is probably impossible to recover your WAEC certificate again.
You can only get “WAEC Attestation of Result” which can be used any in place of WAEC original certificate.
This means that wherever the WAEC Original Certificate is required, you can supply the WAEC Attestation of Result and it will be accepted.
Attestation of Result was introduced by WAEC on August 10, 2015. According to the examination board, this attestation of the result is meant to replace the original result when it is lost. Below is a tweet by WAEC explaining this:
The Council has introduced “Attestation of Results” that can be obtained on request to serve as replacement for lost/missing certificates.
