Students of Psychology Department, Alex Ekwueme Federal University, Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State, emerged best as they took first position at the just concluded Nigerian Psychological Association (NPA) Quiz Competition finals hosted at University of Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, Nigeria.
The final national stage of the competition had four Geo-Political Zones of Nigeria represented in the keen contest as follows; University of Ibadan, (South- West), University of Uyo (South- South), Nasarawa State University (North- Central) while University of Nigeria, Nsukka and Alex-Ekwueme Federal University, Ndufu Alike represented South- East. At the end of the rounds of the competition, AE-FUNAI scored above all contesting universities, to come out best with 50 scores followed by University of Ibadan and Uyo, Host University, who tied for second place with 40 marks each. The AE-FUNAI contingents not only came first but amazingly got all the answers to all questions to them, hence emerging first and best. University of Nigeria, Nsukka, co-representative of South- East, came third with 35 scores.
You will recall that during the zonal competition held at Alex-Ekwueme Federal University on Saturday, April 3rd, 2019, AE-FUNAI came second, to qualify to represent South- East at the national contest alongside University of Nigeria Nsukka, that took first position. AE-FUNAI came first at the 2018 South-East Zonal NPA contest held at Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu and eventually emerged second at the National contest of that year, 2018, hosted by University of Lagos.
The gallant souring eagles led by their very able Co-ordinator, Dr. Okafor, will make triumphant return to a grand reception by the university community, when they will present the trophy and prize for the hard work to the amiable VC, Prof. Chinedum Nwajiuba.
