Students of Top Faith Secondary School, Akwa Ibom state have emerged winner in the finals of the South South zonal 2015 annual quiz competition organized by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

This was as organizers frowned at the poor performance by the participating schools in the zone, advising them to sit up and take their academics seriously.

However, Akwa Ibom state narrowly came tops at the competition held at the West African Peoples’ Institute, WAPI, Calabar, yesterday, after scoring a total of fifty points ahead of other contestants from Rivers, Edo, Delta, Bayelsa and Cross River states.

The competition featured science subjects including Chemistry, Biology, English Language, Physics and Mathematics.

Speaking at the event, the General Manager, Corporate, Mr. Ohi Alegbe charged students to be proactive with their studies, and to develop interest in science related subjects.

He applauded the winners for their astute performance in the various rounds of the competition.

“For you to emerged winner in this stage shows that you are actually a star in your school,” he said

Earlier, coordinator of the competition for the NNPC Mr. Olatayo Sani frowned at the entire performance, saying that most of the students answered the questions based on trial and error with little or no confidence in their choice answers.

“I am not impressed with what is happening here, without options your students cannot answer a question which is very bad, that shows that they are all answering based on guess work and their poor performance in Physics is of concern too which needs to be addressed,” he said

The Cross River State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Offiong Offiong expressed gratitude to organizers for grooming the students in the field of science as the basis for development of any nation.

One of the participants from Top Faith Secondary School Akwa Ibom State, Onyekpe Chidibem attributed their success to hard work and efforts of the coordinating teachers who nurtured them to take part in the competition.

He said he was optimistic that the school would emerge victorious at the national level competition, coming soon.
