[size=15pt]FUTA students win National Mathematics competition, to represent Nigeria in Bulgaria
[/size]


The FUTA Team from its Department of Mathematics comprised Michael Omolaja, a 500 level student, who clinched a gold medal and the title of Best Student Mathematician across Nigerian Universities; Mary Akinade and Segun Ofe, both 500 level students who won silver medals; and Desmond Dike, a 300 level student who picked a bronze medal

Four Students of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria will represent the country at the International Mathematics Competition being organized by the University College, London and holding in America University, Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria between July 25 and 29, 2016.
The FUTA students achieved this feat by coming tops at the 8th National Mathematics Competition for University Students in Nigeria.
The competition took place in Abuja under the aegis of the National Mathematical Centre.
The students came first from a pool of 24 competing Universities, with 96 students which earned them a place in the international competition.
The FUTA Team from its Department of Mathematics comprised Michael Omolaja, a 500 level student, who clinched a gold medal and the title of Best Student Mathematician across Nigerian Universities; Mary Akinade and Segun Ofe, both 500 level students who won silver medals; and Desmond Dike, a 300 level student who picked a bronze medal.
Dr. Babatope Omolofe and Ayodeji Afolabi, lecturers in the Department, supervised the team.
The International Competition would consist of two sessions of five hours each with problems from the field of Algebra, Real and Complex Analysis, Geometry and Combinatorics with about 80 countries participating.
NAMCUS is an annual event initiated by the National Mathematical Centre, Abuja to prepare Nigerian students for the annual International Mathematics Competition for students of higher institutions across the country.
The 2016 edition consisted of two papers of six questions drawn from a pool on Abstracts, Algebra, Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, Functional Analysis and Differential Equations with forty-eight students emerging as medal winners.
Dr. Babatope Omolofe, one of the team leaders, particularly expressed gratitude to God for the placement of the team.
Omolofe said the team owed it to God as he saw total commitment to God as their winning ticket.
Ayodeji Afolabi, the other team leader, added that the team’s victory showed the stuff FUTA is made off and increases the University’s ranking among its peers.
He was hopeful that the team would return with medals from the international competition as he opined that the team has what it takes to hold its own on the global platform.
Disclosing the secret to success, Michael Omolaja, the gold medalist, said the team depended on God and worked together to distinguish itself.
Omolaja, who has a record of tutoring students at Masters and PhD levels, is a Fluid Numerical and Complex Analysis major in the making, with a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 4.69 and several published journal papers to his credit.
Mary Akinade, the female on the team and one of the silver medalists, explained that Mathematics is not as difficult as people think.
Akinade emphasized that the successful study of Mathematics only demands interest, support, persistent practice and confidence. She has a CGPA of 4.68.
According to Segun Ofe, who is a second time participant (2015) and the second silver medalist: “It is a privilege to represent Nigeria and we are going to put in our best to make the most of the privilege.”
His CGPA is 4.59.
The bronze medalist, Desmond Dike, who has CGPA of 4.68, said the team selection was a good compliment and that he particularly learnt from teammates in order to give his best.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Adebiyi Daramola, while congratulating the team, assured the members of total support as they prepare to fly the flag of FUTA and Nigeria in Bulgaria.
Daramola described their feat as a big boost to the University’d image and another testimony to its excellence in academic matters.

These are walking calculator. A sensible country would harness this raw talent for inovations and inventions. But No, this matter will just die there.




This Igbo kids at Futa keep making us proud. Let them go and represent us well. And may Amadioha guide his own.

Good to hear this, where are those big for nothing universities? Imagine the female among them, I feel like joining you guys. She said mathematics is not difficult as people thought... Am Thinking on that statement, she may be fortunate to be taught by a good and mathematics interested teacher, not those that studied chemistry or geography that are given mathematics to be taught. They don't know what the subject entails hence makes it so difficult for student. May God help us with those teachers

Nice to see the new generations of Yorubas doing great and following our footsteps. Let the governors invest in education to improve the WAEC/Jamb pass rates because the latest figures are underwhelming and less than what Yorubas are capable of.
