The Prempeh College quiz team that won this year’s National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) has disclosed that they were able to stand out from their competitors because of “the uncommon favour of God.”

In an interview on Accra-based Starr FM, the contestants, Wonder Sarfo-Ansah and Daniel Osei Badu said they entered the competition with courage.

“We weren’t worried about any school but at the same time, we were worried about all the schools,” one of the contestants, Daniel Osei Badu said.

His colleague Wonder Sarfo-Ansah said they were not pressurised from the media hype and the interest from old students associations, but rather their only pressure was to “live up to the expectation of the school and our parents.”

"We were expecting to win because we were so confident that, with God we could accomplished everything. We saw from our previous contest that indeed God was working towards a certain point, so we were expecting him to give us the victory," Daniel said.

Wonder Sarfo-Ansah, whose father was part of the 1996 team that won the NSMQ competition for Prempeh College for the first time said his father was living his dream through him.
