NNPC promotes science education

The Coordinator, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation annual quiz,  Olutayo Sanni, says the programme promotes science education among pupils in the country.
He said this at the Abeokuta Grammar School, Idi Aba, venue of the 2016 edition of the competition, in the South-West.
He said it was only through the promotion of science that the nation would develop its technological capabilities and become a major player in the comity of nations.
He said the competition involved senior secondary pupils who offered science subjects.
He said, “The quiz has been getting positive responses from public and private schools across the country. We are targeting SS 2 pupils offering science subjects.
“This is to prepare them for the promotional examinations and other relevant examinations, such as the National Examination Council, West African Examinations Council and Joint Admissions Matriculation Board.
“The importance of science cannot be over-emphasised. Without technology, no country can develop. That is why we are focusing on the promotion of science in our quiz.”
In the South-West, Lagos State scored 65 marks to beat their Ogun State counterparts, who scored 60. Ganiyu Olayinka, Joseph Samuel and Ijezie Ifeanyi represented Lagos State.
