If you attended Tekedia Institute, our policy is that your certificate must be issued with your official name. Once that is done, we cannot update or change it. That is why the certificate process is not automated since most times people do not use official names in digital platforms. That said, as you submit these certificates for jobs, etc, make sure your name matches what we have in our records. We do get many letters weekly to verify authenticity, and it is very important you do not set yourself in a position where bad things would happen.
Wale is not the same thing as Adewale just as Iffy is not the same as Ifeoma. The name must match. We get letters like this from Canada, Lagos, London, Nairobi, etc and we have an obligation to match the names, and where they differ, we cannot authenticate. Every certificate ever issued by Tekedia Institute is archived.
Do not set us up to fail you on this – be consistent on your names, no exceptions.
