A member of the PRESEC-Legon NSMQ 2021 team, Kwame Brako Asante, has emerged as the overall best student in the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Ghana. Although he did not feature on-stage at the National Championship, he represented PRESEC-Legon as the third contestant in their triumphant Greater Accra Regional Championship win in 2021.
In addition to this National feat, Kwame was also honoured as the overall second-best student in West Africa, behind Nweze Isabella Chinasa, a student from the Lagoon School in Lekki, Lagos State of Nigeria. Meanwhile, Eleanor Godswill, from the Airforce Comprehensive School in the Enugu State of Nigeria, was adjudged the third best student at the WASSCE 2021.
Kwame, together with the other honorees were celebrated at an event attended by the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, as well as other dignitaries including Nigeria’s Youth and Sports Minister and officials from the Ghana Education Service, PRESEC-Legon and other academics. For their excellent academic performances, Master Kwame Brako as well as the overall winner and the third-best were awarded prizes for emerging as the brightest and best in the 2021 WASSCE which was written by over two million candidates across West Africa.
From all of us at Primetime and the NSMQ, we would like to extend our hearty congratulations to Master Kwame Brako on this feat. Ayekoo!
