The assistant headmaster for Opoku Ware School, Akwasi Oduro Boateng, has relived the painful experience he had after his school lost the National Science and Maths Quiz final in 2020.
Recounting what happened in an interview with JoyNews, Mr Oduro Boateng revealed that he had joined Opoku Ware School as a new member of staff prior to the 2020 NSMQ finals and was very optimistic the school would emerge victorious in that final involving Presbyterian Boys' Senior High School (Presec) and Adisadel College.
He said that hope later gave way to disappointment when the contestants representing OWASS failed to answer a number of questions correctly, making it obvious the school were losing the contest.
With defeat staring at him in the face, Mr Oduro revealed he stopped watching the contest and even failed to eat his meal afterwards.

"I couldn't stand it again, I had to move out of the room. I had not eaten by then. When they finished the whole contest, I came back to my room, my food was intact, and I couldn't eat.
Presec won the 2020 finals with Adisadel College in the second position, whereas OWASS finished third.
OWASS will be seeking to end their 21-year NSMQ trophy drought when it comes up against Presec and Achimota School in the final on October 30, at the National Theatre.
