Cow­bell­pe­dia: Ogun, Abuja stu­dents pick fi­nal tick­ets

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - From Nu­rudeen Oye­wole, La­gos

As the 2018 edi­tion of the Cow­bell­pe­dia math­e­matic com­pe­ti­tion en­tered the fi­nal stage, sec­ondary school stu­dents from Ogun and Abuja put in spir­ited ef­forts and have grabbed three slots at the se­nior and ju­nior school cat­e­gories.

At the se­nior cat­e­gory, Juliet Ekoko and Enoch Adelekan from The Am­bas­sador Col­lege in Ota, Ogun state de­feated con­tes­tants from other states to earn their tick­ets.

Juliet and Enoch sur­passed four other coun­ter­parts. Amara Aronu, Em­manuel Ig­ban and Ore­ofe Daniel, from The Am­bas­sadors Col­lege dropped from the con­test; the other de­feated con­tes­tant was Ay­omi­posi Adiji, from Pre­ston In­ter­na­tional School in Akure, Ondo State.

Re­lat­ing her story Juliet, who was the 2015 ju­nior cat­e­gory win­ner said her ex­pe­ri­ence on the Cow­bell­pe­dia TV Quiz show was quite ex­cit­ing and in­ter­est­ing. “I have been a cham­pion and will feel very great to be crowned a cham­pion again,” she said.

For the ju­nior cat­e­gory, Gabriel Ako­gun of Welkin In­ter­na­tional School in Ogun State is joined by Chiedozie Uzochukwu of Nige­rian Tulip In­ter­na­tional Col­lege for Boys in Abuja. The duo had de­feated Iyu­nade Ogun­dana of Greater To­mor­row Model Col­lege in Ado Ek­iti, Ek­iti State and three oth­ers to get their tick­ets.
