ANAMBRA schools have continued their sterling outing at global academic meets, with pupils of Regina Pacis Secondary School, Onitsha, adding latest laurel to the state’s prize haul at the recent World Technovation Challenge held in San Francisco, the United States of America ( USA).
Congratulating the five triumphant students who came home with the trophy, Gov. Willie Obiano expressed happiness at their victory, explaining that their outing is consistent with his blueprint for development of basic education in mission schools and their community counterparts all over the state.
The governor also tipped Promise Nnalue, Jessica Osita, Nwabuaku Ossai, Adaeze Onuigbo and Vivian Okoye – who floored their contemporaries from nine technologically advanced countries including United States, India, Turkey, China, Uzbekistan, Spain, among others – to clinch gold in more international competitions.
At the competition held in the Silicon Valley in San Francisco, USA, the World Champions who represented Nigeria and Africa won with a mobile application called FD-detector which they developed to help tackle the challenge of fake pharmaceutical products.
“These kids have done Africa, Nigeria and Anambra State proud. They have placed Anambra State on the map, and I thank everybody that made it to happen. More laurels await them in the future,” Obiano said.
