Granville Chukwure, a prodigious student from the Total Education Development Academy (TEDA) in Eke-Owerri, Obingwa Local Government Area, Abia State, is set to represent Nigeria at the prestigious International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) in Saudi Arabia this July. This marks another significant milestone for the young academic, who has consistently demonstrated exceptional aptitude in the sciences.

Chukwure secured his place in this elite global competition by clinching the first position at the Nigerian Mathematics and Sciences Olympiad held at the National Mathematical Centre (NMC) in Abuja in April 2024. His outstanding performance earned him the opportunity to compete against some of the brightest young minds from around the world.

Granville Chukwure, who hails from the Ibaa community in Emohua Local Government Area, Rivers State, is the son of Samuel Uchechukwu Chukwure. He has been rigorously preparing for this international contest, supported by TEDA and the resources at the National Mathematical Centre. His preparation includes intensive training sessions designed to sharpen his skills and knowledge in chemistry.

The International Chemistry Olympiad will be held at Badr Al-Majrathi, Saudi Arabia, from Sunday, July 21, to Tuesday, July 30. This competition brings together top students from various countries to challenge their understanding and application of chemical concepts through theoretical and practical exams.

Granville's academic prowess is further highlighted by his remarkable performance in the 2024 JAMB examination, where he scored an impressive 345 marks. This achievement placed him at the forefront of TEDA’s academic excellence, underscoring the school’s commitment to nurturing talented students. TEDA, located in rural Eke-Owerri, has a history of academic success, with 19 students scoring between 250 and 345 marks in the 2024 JAMB examination.

The school's reputation for excellence is further evidenced by its participation in international competitions. In 2023, Granville Chukwure represented Nigeria at the 55th International Chemistry Olympiad in Zurich, Switzerland. His experience in Switzerland was invaluable and highlighted the school's and Nigeria's capabilities on a global stage.

Granville is among TEDA's top achievers, with aspirations to study Medicine and Surgery. Other top performers include Valeria K. Emordi, who scored 296 marks and also aims to pursue Medicine and Surgery, and Victor Enyinnaya, who scored 288 marks and plans to study Chemical Engineering.

The National Mathematical Centre, Abuja, plays a pivotal role in organizing and preparing Nigerian students for these international competitions. The NMC's mandate includes identifying young talents in the mathematical sciences and providing the training necessary for them to compete globally. Nigeria has been participating in the International Mathematical Olympiad since 2006 and now competes in six major international mathematical science Olympiads annually: the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the International Biology Olympiad (IBO), the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), and the Pan African Mathematical Olympiad (PAMO).

Granville Chukwure's achievements have garnered support and recognition from various stakeholders, including the Rivers State government, which many hope will back his endeavors. As he prepares to compete in Saudi Arabia, Granville continues to exemplify the academic excellence and potential that TEDA and Nigeria proudly foster.
