How God’s Favour Pushed Me Into 2018 Cowbellpedia Final – Contestant

Published

Although Mathematics competition requires speed, accuracy and precision, intervention in the form of God’s favour, mercy and compassion also plays enormous advantage at critical moments of the competition.

This was the submission of Favour Okarike, a student of Graceland International School, Port Harcourt, Rivers State who scaled the semi-final hurdle in the on-going 2018 Cowbellpedia Secondary School Mathematics Television Quiz Show, sponsored by Cowbell Milk, the leading brand of Promasidor Nigeria Limited.

Favour, who had a perfect score in the qualifying examination held in February, explained that God’s favour came to help her at the critical moments where her courage almost failed her. “I have prayed and prepared but getting to the stage is a different ball game. But I was confident that if my human ability waned, God would step in and He did. I am so grateful,” she said.

Favour also looks forward to meeting more of her schoolmates in the finals. “I am grateful for the journey so far. Out of 108 that started, I have stepped into the final lap. God who has started well with me will complete the process favourably,” she told newsmen outside the studio in Lagos.

In the first semi-final thriller in the junior category in Lagos last weekend, Favour was joined by Splendour Nwankwo, a student of the Jesuit Memorial College, also of Port Harcourt, Rivers to march into the final ahead of four other contestants.

The other participants whose journey ended at the semi-final were Benny Sampson-Uche, Adrea Eboagwu and Ifeanyi Anyokuall of Graceland International School, Port Harcourt, Rivers State; and Jonathan Okonkwo of Baptist High School, Naraguta-Jos, Plateau State. Splendour was grateful to God and his teacher for getting to the home stretch of the competition. “It was actually tough and stressful”. I pray to win and eventually become the 2018 champion. My parents will be very happy,” he said.
