The Managing Director of Fryda Nigeria Limited, Mrs Loretta Dare Alao, disclosed this to PM Sports during the opening ceremony of the championship which kicked off on Monday at the indoor sports hall of Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos State.

Alao said that aside the brand new bus given to the eventual winner, there will be other gift items for all the participants taking part in the championship.

“Last year, we gave a brand new car to the winner. We have decided to give the winner of this year’s edition a brand new bus, while all the participants will collect a laptop each. I am impressed that the participants are doing well in the game,” she said.

She said the objective of the tourney is to introduce scrabble at post-primary level, positioning it as a basic development tool for academic achievement.
