The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, has expressed the commitment of the Corporation to science education. He said that the corporation’s position on science was motivated by the immense impact played by Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics(STEM) education in societal growth and nation building.

Mr Baru expressed this during the grand finale of the Corporation’s 2017 National Quiz Competition organized on Tuesday in Abuja.

The NNPC Boss pointed that, “To ensure that best standards are maintained when it comes to the quality and integrity of the quiz competition, NNPC has also gone into partnership with the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS), as well as the Science Teachers Association of Nigeria (STAN).”

The annual contest which kicked off on Monday 13, November had Delta state claimed the first position with 75 pts while Abia state appeared second with 70 pts. Ondo state took the third place with 65 pts.

Dr. Baru promised that hence forth this year’s series, would offer a one-off educational grant worth N100, 000 each to all State winners of the competition, also, a scholarship award of N300, 000 would be granted to the overall winner per session, while the second and third place winners would receive a scholarship award ofN250, 000 and  N200, 000 respectively per session for the duration of their tertiary education.

Baru advised, “I am very happy to see that three of the contestants are female, contrary to the notion that science education is primarily for males. These three females battled with their counterparts and came out victorious. Despite this feat by the female contestants, I want to throw up a challenge to teachers and parents alike across the country: The girl child should be encouraged to excel in core science, technology and engineering subjects.”

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, represented by the House Committee Chairman on Downstream, Hon. Joseph Akinlaja, applauded the NNPC for sustaining the programme in the past 17 years and for grooming the leaders of tomorrow through the Quiz Competition. He stated that the House of Representatives stood with the contestants and the NNPC for the event which he described as epoch making event. “Education makes the people to be easily governed, but makes it difficult to enslave them. I urge the students to remain focused and wish them all the best in the contest,” Hon. Dogara submitted.

Aminu Tambuwal, commended the management of the NNPC for sustaining the quiz competition in the last 17 years, noting that the Corporation has not only ensured the survival of the competition but has made it a pan-Nigerian contest. “It is really a national event and has the characteristic of a football match in Nigeria whereby all sections of the country are represented.

For instance’ Master Sunday Enokela that represented Sokoto State is not an indigene of the State but we are very proud of him and we came all the way to support him. So,  I commend the initiative of the NNPC and  I am very  satisfied with the outcome and organization of the competition,” Gov. Tambuwal observed.

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, who also spoke at the event, congratulated NNPC for its support to the education of the youths in the country. Mr. Obaseki stated that he was proud of the representative of his State, Master Hassan David, of Word of Faith Secondary School, Benin. The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, congratulated the participants for excelling in their academics by emerging champions of their various states and zones and urged the Governors to continue to serve as fatherly figure to them by encouraging the contestants in their educational pursuit. Dr. Kachikwu stated that the essence of the event in the lives of the contestants might not be apparent now, disclosing that in future, it would add up to their curriculum vitae Speaking in similar vein, the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, represented by the Director, Research and Planning of the Federal Ministry of Education,.

Other dignitaries who spoke at the event including the Head of WAEC, Nigeria, Mr. Olu Adenipekun and Registrar of National Examinations Council (NECO), Prof. Charles Uwakwe, commended and identified with the NNPC for promoting excellence amongst the youths, stressing that they are the leaders of tomorrow and that the investment in their education was in the right direction.

Pioneer winner of the NNPC quiz competition, Mr. Sunday Aliu, applauded the NNPC for giving him the platform to excel in his educational pursuit, adding that the rare opportunity has made him to contribute to the Egina Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) project which is the deepest offshore project in the country. He enjoined all participants to marry their studies and cease the opportunity provided by the corporation to further their careers in life.

    353. Noen her vært borti Mint Media?

    De ringte meg i dag på vegne av en kunde hvor jeg
    har SEO. Presenterte seg først som Google og skulle ha en gjennomgang.

    Så tok de for seg en av mine kunders Buiness oppføringer som
    alle (av oss) vet er gratis, det er bare å ta eierskap. Selgeren sa
    et den snart utløp og måtte fornyes.

    Bare tull

    Skjønte jo at dette var bare tull og spurte ham noen spørsmål som;

    Er han kunde av dere? (Ja sa karen fra mint media)
    Har han betalt? (Ja! Han har betalt)
    Jeg ber ham google et nytt firmanavn – Har han betalt også?
    (Ja, han står på vår kundeliste)
    Jeg gjentar; Men har han betalt? (vent… la meg seg…
    han er kunde men står foreløpig som gratis hos oss)
    Så alle kunder i Norge som ikke har betalt er kunder av dere?
    (ja, på en måte, de er det ja..)

    Dette selger de til småbedrifter samtidig som de gir inntrykk av at de fremstår er Google, samt at Business
    oppføringen til kunden utløper om det ikke betales penger.

    Maken til tølpere! Google Partner kaller de seg også.

    Synes det er greit at folk fort vite om dette. Det ødelegger
    for oss som faktisk er seriøse.
