According to a Punch report, for solving 17 Maths questions in one minute, Oluwatunmise Idowu, a pupil of Scholars Universal Secondary School, Ota, Ogun State, has set a new record in the annual Cowbellpedia Mathematics Television quiz.

Idowu who is 13 year old set the new record when she slugged it out in the Group B stage of the on-going competition with Ayomide Nafisat Abdulwaheed, a JSS 3 pupil of Reality High School, Osogbo, Osun State; Olajide Osoba of Atlantic Hall, Epe, Lagos State; Edidiong Okon of Topfaith International Secondary School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State; Charles Adesoba of Petoa City College, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State; and Vanessa Ibol of NOWA Secondary School, New Kashi, Nassarawa State.

With the new record, Idowu has beat the record of 15/60 seconds set last year by Ayodeji Akinkuowo of Adeyemi Demonstration College, Ondo State. Akinkuowo eventually won the senior category of the competition.

The competition is an annual programme organised by Promasidor Nigeria Limited. The phase won by Idowu involved a test of contestants’ speed and accuracy as they were required to answer as many questions as possible in 60 seconds.

Idowu, who said she spends four hours practising Mathematics everyday, also hopes to win the crown this year.

“I want to win. My parents want me to win, just like my school also wants me victorious. Winning the crown will be the greatest gift I want from God this year. Apart from the one million naira prize, the bragging right in my school and among my friends will be inestimable. I can’t wait for the glorious moment. I pray for God’s favour,” she said.
