The Efiko National Secondary School Challenge is a mobile quiz competition designed for Senior Secondary School students to enhance learning through self-assessment, with topical quizzes around the National School Curriculum.
The competition is run on the Efiko application, one of the ventures that graduated from the Nokia/CcHUB Growth Academy, last year.
Co-founder, Efiko, Mr. Ade Adebayo, expressed joy at the success of the challenge, which saw winners emerging from five states across Nigeria.
He reiterated that Efiko was borne out of the need to change the trend of poor academic performance in Nigerian primary and secondary schools by helping them to learn and compete with one another in line with the national educational curriculum.
Senior Product Manager, Nokia West and Central Africa, Mr. Teemu Kiijarvi, who presented the prizes, restated his firm’s support for local apps developers to grow their ventures into valuable businesses.
“The prizes given out today represent Nokia’s support to the aspirations of young people. The Efiko National Secondary School winners are being appreciated for excelling in the competition. Together with Efiko, and CcHUB we plan to significantly grow users of the application to over a million, so that many more students would benefit from the value it delivers,” he said.
