In a fairly contested contest, Ghana National College dominated the entire competition to send their competitors packing from this year’s NSMQ.

The GNC contestants, Hayford Mathew and Christian Amedor, said the favour of God on them secured their victory.

The victors recounted their challenge with the round of fundamental concepts (Round one) which they described as problematic but hope to prepare adequately going into the next round of the competition.
