Mathematics education is the very foundation of society and the pillar of science and technology without which a nation can never become prosperous and economically independent.

This was the submission of Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Mr Anders Einarsson while speaking last weekend in Lagos, at the finals of season 5 of the Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematics Television Quiz Show sponsored by Cowbell Milk, the flagship brand of his company.

Einarsson further explained in a chat with newsmen that the importance of Mathematics in the life of individuals and nations cannot be overemphasised, adding that he was very impressed that the Cowbellpedia initiative has achieved its objective going by the record number of 56,073 participants that took the qualifying examination this year.

This according to him, is a huge testament to the Cowbellpedia initiative and the interest that Nigerians have in Mathematics. “I am convinced that with the arrays of talents displayed by these young Nigerians here today, Nigeria can rule the world. I advise the youth to continue to sustain their interest in Mathematics because the future is theirs,” he said.
