Ghanaians Laud OWASS
Many fellow Ghanaians commended OWASS for their commendable showing in the concluded NSMQ.
The quiz has been too intense for Owass. We have given our all. Our journey since our victory in 2002 have taken us to nearly seven or six finals which means we’ve been giving a stellar performance. Though our hard work is apparent, our mental fortitude and self-assurance matter too.

Despite being a Senior (Amanfoɔ), Stephen was the shining star of this competition for me. That lad is simply brilliant! Stephen, don’t lose hope. Keep your spirits high and come back more powerful, brighter, and smarter the next time. Lift the trophy next year as I strongly believe you have the potential to do so.
