Sandra Osei, Nemaku Johnson, and Hiamey Kwame Nelson

More interesting is the fact that the contestants, Sandra Osei, Nemaku Johnson, and Hiamey Kwame Nelson, were all in their second year when they represented their school in 2019. Unfortunately, their journey was shortened by Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School at the Preliminary Stage of the 2019 edition of the National Championship.

Assin State College, represented by the same team from 2019, came back in 2020 stronger to beat Mfantsiman Girls’ SHS at the Regional Qualifiers. They subsequently beat Ghana National College at the Preliminary Stage of the National Championship.

The first round of the contest ended with Assin State College in the last position. In the second round, however, Assin State College turned the tables by answering most of the Speed Race questions correctly.

Sandra Osei, considered as Assin State’s super-sub coming on during the fourth round.

What did it for them was the fourth round, where Sandra Osei came on board, and together with Nemaku Johnson, answered all their True/False statements correctly; a repetition of what they did in their contest against Presbyterian Secondary School in 2019.

Assin State crowned their performance by answering three out of four riddles correctly in the final round of the competition, winning the GOIL Riddle Bonanza award, worth GH¢800.00 at the Preliminary Stage.
