Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, at the beginning of the contest commended the organisers, Primetime, for initiating the National Science & Maths Quiz (NSMQ) for senior high school (SHS) students.

He said the programme has whipped up interest in the study of science and its related programmes among SHS students.

Dr Adutwum also commended all the contestants from the three schools, saying, “no matter what happens, contestants, you have done well for your schools.”


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
