Prempeh College, a prominent institution well-known for its excellence in the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ), has filed a lawsuit against the NSMQ organizers.
The legal action taken by this prestigious institution is threatening to cast a shadow over the highly anticipated finals scheduled for October 30, 2023.
While the sympathizer’s writ against the NSMQ organizers underscored the importance of transparency and factual reporting, Prempeh College’s legal action introduces a level of competition and controversy that has left the nation divided.
The crux of Prempeh College’s grievance appears to revolve around the allegations of inaccuracies and improprieties in the NSMQ program.
However, this move by Prempeh College has sparked a vigorous debate among the Ghanaian populace. On one side, there are netizens and supporters of the institution who believe that taking legal action is a necessary step to ensure the fairness and transparency of the NSMQ.
Conversely, there are others who feel that Prempeh College has gone too far in pursuing legal action and attempting to halt the finals. They argue that the legal battle may overshadow the competition itself and detract from the true spirit of the NSMQ.
“Prempeh College this is shameful. Going to Court over one NSMQ question. Sweaa” Kofi Ofosu Nkansah, CEO, National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme wrote.
As the legal proceedings commence and the nation watches with bated breath, it remains to be seen how this dramatic turn of events will ultimately impact the NSMQ and the participating schools. The finals scheduled for October 30, 2023, hang in the balance, with uncertainty clouding the horizon.
