Iyanuoluwa Osewa and Abiodun Bello both from The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State last weekend repeated the feat of their respective students who won last year’s Cowbellpedia Secondary School Mathematics TV Quiz Show, sponsored by Cowbell, the flagship brand of Promasidor Nigeria Limited. 

In the Teachers’ edition of the competition, which was conceived to mark the World Teachers’ Day, teachers of the 12 finalists in the Junior and Senior categories of the 2016 edition of the competition, slugged it out. 

The World Teachers’ Day is celebrated annually and brings together governments, multi- and bilateral organisations, NGOs, private sector players, teachers and experts in the field of teaching to mark achievements and reflect on ways to counter the challenges facing the teaching profession. 

In the Junior category, Osewa, whose student Juliet Ekoro won that category last year, emerged the champion having contested with Ezekiel Adeyemi of Bibo Oluwa Academy, Ilesa, Osun State and Esther Emmanuel of Scholars Universal Secondary School, Ota, Ogun State. Other teachers who participated were Abosede Adeolu of Greater Tomorrow International College, Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo State; Emmanuel Aina and Alabi Akoredele, both of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State. 

Osewa, son of Samson Osewa, the Proprietor of Ambassadors College, scored 100 points to win the ultimate prize of a branded laptop and a plaque. “I have loved Mathematics since I was young and my father is my greatest role model. If I had not been a teacher, I would have been an engineer,” he said. 

In the Senior category, Kolawole Bello, the teacher of 2016 Senior category winner Ayooluwa Oguntade, triumphed over Fatai Ganiyu Babatunde and Jimoh Muyideen, both of Ota Total Academy and Yunus Olaniyi of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State. Both schools are located in Ota, Ogun State. Other teachers who fell by the way side are Kehinde Oludare of Bibo Oluwa Academy, Ilesa, Osun State and Abdul Abiodun of The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State. 

Bello, scored 50 points to claim the ultimate prize of a branded laptop and a plaque. “I am happy and very proud of myself. My victory is dedicated to God and my student who made me proud by being a finalist,” he told journalists outside the studio in Lagos last weekend. 

The 2017 Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematic TV Quiz continues this weekend. It will be aired to millions of viewers on DSTv Africa Magic Family Channel, AIT Network and other six television stations across the country. 

The ultimate prize in the Senior and Junior categories is N1 million each and an all-expense-paid educational excursion outside the country. The first and second runner-ups for each category will go home with N750,000 and N500,000 respectively. 

Each teacher of the 2017 champions will be awarded N400,000, while those of the first and second runner-ups will receive N300,000 and N200,000 respectively. Also, the winning schools will be rewarded with mathematics textbooks, desktop computers and printers.
