Granville Chukwure, a young prodigy from the Total Education Development Academy at Eke-Owerri in Obingwa LGA, Abia State, is set to embark on a journey to Saudi Arabia in July. He will join other exceptional students worldwide to compete in the prestigious International Mathematics and Sciences Olympiad.

Granville Chukwure won the first position in the Nigerian Mathematics and Sciences Olympiad held at the National Mathematical Centre Abuja in April 2024.

It fetched him an invitation to spar with similar best brains from other countries.

Granville led the charge by Total Education Development Academy in the 2024 JAMB examination by scoring 345 marks.

With the unwavering support of the Total Education Development Academy, Granville Chukwure has been diligently preparing for a month at the National Mathematical Centre, gearing up for the international competition.

The competition will occur at Badr Al-Majrathi, Saudi Arabia, from Sunday, July 21, to Tuesday, July 30.

Granville Chukwuere hails from the Ibaa community in the Emohua Local Government of Rivers State. He is a son of Samuel Uchechukwu Chukwure.

Chukwure represented Nigeria in the 2023 International Chemistry Olympiad in Zurich, Switzerland. It was an excellent experience for him, his family, the state, and the country.

Nineteen students from TEDA School in rural Eke-Owerri, Obingwa Local Government of Abia State, scored between 250 and 345 marks in the 2024 JAMB examination. Their results confirmed the school’s top-tier profile in the Nigerian school community.

TEDA has a progressive track record of academic excellence. In 2023, TEDA represented Nigeria at Switzerland’s 55th International Chemistry Olympiad. Grandville Chukure, who scored 345 marks in the 2024 JAMB, represented TEDA and Nigeria in that contest.

TEDA School gladly promotes the good results of its star students. In the top three are Granville Chukwure, who wants to study Medicine and Surgery and scored 345 in JAMB; Valeria K. Emordi, who scored 296, also wants to study Medicine and Surgery; and Victor Enyinnaya, with a JAMB score of 288, seeks to enrol in Chemical Engineering.

The National Mathematical Centre, Abuja, provides the impetus and organisation for Nigeria’s participation in the Olympiads. The NMC states, “One of the National Mathematical Centre (NMC) Abuja mandates is to identify young talents in the Mathematical sciences and train and prepare them to compete internationally. Through the Centre, Nigeria started participating in the International Mathematical Olympiad in 2005, first as an Observer Country and later, in 2006, as a participating country. Nigeria participates in six central international mathematical science Olympiads annually, coordinated by the Centre.

“They are the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the International Biology Olympiad (IBO), the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), and the Pan African Mathematical Olympiad (PAMO).”
Chukwure’s results keep expanding his stakeholders. They now include the Rivers State government that many look up to for support in this venture.
