Governor Ugwuanyi disclosed that the state government has paid adequate attention to the school curriculum and how the contents could impact positively on the students academically.

While commending the Ministry of Science and Technology for organizing the event in line with the vision of the state government, the governor enjoined the students to avail themselves of such opportunity to further their careers.

Sir Carl stressed that the governor’s great interest in innovation in driving science and technology as well as knowledge-based economy for structural and operational transformation of the state was unique and commendable.

He noted that this year’s event, with the theme ‘Open Science, Leaving No One Behind’, was anchored on invitation of all and sundry to the renewal of commitment in the investment and use of science for the benefit of the society.

Highlights of the event was the presentation of awards to the winners of the World Science Day quiz competition held earlier, where Jude Ugwuanyi from Umuachi Technical School in Obollo Zone took the first position, Ezea Shedrach from Special Science School Ukehe in Nsukka Zone, and Precious Iheanacho from Colliery Comprehensive School Ngwo in Enugu Zone went home with 2nd and 3rd position respectively.
