Our Abuja experience, by Cowbell maths winners

Date: 2012-12-26 16:32:51

For the 20 winners of the 2012 Cowbell National Secondary School Mathematics Competition (NASSMAC) and their mathematics teachers, it was two days of fun and excitement as Promasidor, makers of Cowbell and sponsors of the maths competition, hosted them in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.


On Wednesday,  July 4, the winners and their teachers were flown to Abuja,and  lodged at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel.
Managing Director, Promasidor, Keith Richards, in his welcome address, called on all stakeholders to stem the tide of low pass rates of students in mathematics in WAEC and NECO.

“Promasidor sees this not only as a fight for our future but also, as a fight for the collective future of Nigeria. This competition is aimed at re-awakening students’ interest in mathematics as a road map to nation- building.”

The top three winners in junior category are 11-year-old JSS 3 student, Akintokun Samuel, a student of Ota Total Academy in Ogun State who scored 96 points and went home with a gold trophy, a laptop and N300,000.

Second is Omole Ayobami, a 13-year-old JSS 3 student from Bibo Oluwa Academy in Ilesa, Osun State. With 93 points, the only female winner went home with a silver trophy and N200,000 cash, while the 3rd winner, Akinwande Boye, a JSS 3 student of Greater Tomorrow College, Agbalaku in Ondo State, carted away a bronze trophy and N150,000.

In the senior category, a 15- year-old, SS 2 student from Iganmode Grammar School, Oju Ore, Ogun State, Benjamin Uwa, with 96 points went home with a laptop, a gold trophy and N300,000, while Henry Aniobi, 16 years in SS 2 with 95 points from the Nigerian Turkish International School, Kano, came second and was given a laptop, silver trophy and N250,000. Third prize winner, 14-years-old Shorinwa Olaoluwa from Graceland International School went with a bronze trophy, a laptop and N200,000.

With the ceremony and lunch over, the students changed into their Cowbell branded t-shirts and off they went for excursion and sight-seeing.

Recounting the day’s experience, the winners were full of thanks to Promasidor for bringing them to Abuja and giving them a time of their lives.

“Wow, this is my first visit to Abuja and I never imagined I would be staying in a 5-star hotel. I have seen Abuja in pictures but it is a different feeling to be here in person and experience this great city”, said 11-year-old Samuel Adegboyega, junior category winner of this year’s Cowbell maths competition.

For the senior category winner, Benjamin Uwa, the day was more than he hoped for. “It is the coolest day of my life. I’m grateful to Promasidor for lodging us in this hotel because I never imagined I would be staying here.”

For the only female winner, Omole Ayobami, “I thank Promasidor for giving us this wonderful experience. It feels great and special to be staying in a 5-star hotel like this.”

Cowbell National Secondary School Mathematics Competition (NASSMAC) started in 2001 and has expanded from 40 examination centers to 200; from 1,000 participating schools to over 5,000; and from 6,000 students to over 35,000.
