Primetime says the NSMQ postponement is in regard to a ban on noise-making, trading and other public activities within that period as part of a tradition in line with the final funeral rites of the late Ga Manye Naa Dedei Omaedru III.
“Primetime Limited announces that in line with tradition, and in memory of the late Ga Manye Naa Dedei Omaedru III, the Grand Finale of the National Science & Maths Quiz, scheduled for Tuesday, 24th October, 2023 has been postponed.
Primetime conveys its deepest condolences to His Majesty King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, Ga Mantse, Niimei, Naamei and the Ga State, during this period of mourning. May the soul of our beloved Queen Mother forever rest in peace,” it said.
