According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the competition was organised by a Non-Governmental Organisation, identified as Real Act of Kindness Development Foundation.

Adeoti, who hails from Oko-Afo, won the final round of RAK COVID-19 Essay Competition which was centred on the topic, “The Lessons I Learnt During The COVID-19 Pandemic.”. The competition was held on Wednesday at Ajara Vetho, Badagry.

Olufisayo Sorungbe and Faith Ojerinde, both SS3 and SS2 students of Lagos Senior Model College, Kankon, as reported by NAN came second and third, respectively.

Adeoti received a cash award of N10, 000, Sorungbe got N6, 000 while Ojerinde received cash prize of N4, 000.

Other participants were presented with consolation prizes which include school bags, exercise books, Notepad, water bottles, face caps and pens.

The founder of the NGO, Mr Mobolaji Ogunlende, said the competition was aimed at keeping the pupils busy during the pandemic.

We are all suffering from COVID-19, the whole world is going through changes, all students are at home, a lot of students are willing to go back to school,

“So, I thought of a way to engage the students, and what came to my mind was the essay competition,” he said.

Ogunlende urged the pupils to always take advantage of similar education programmes to excel, adding that aside the cash prize, the competition was an opportunity to push themselves forward.

He stated, “For me it is not so much about the prize, it’s about the opportunities, value and leverage we are creating for the young individuals to thrive.

“In this type of competition, to me everyone is a winner, for the fact that you actually took the effort and time to participate.
