This happened last Friday, December 30, 2016 at the Ifeanyi Uba’s sponsored Nnewi Youths Fiesta where all the sixteen
contestants for the Miss Nnewi beauty pageant were disqualified for failing to answer basic current affairs questions correctly.
The gathering was thoroughly pissed for theinability of the contestants to answer questions like who the founder of the Dr. Ifeanyi Uba foundation is; What they would do if they become the president of Nigeria; and Who the president of Nigeria is.
A contestant excitedly told the gathering that the current president of Nigeria is Dr. Muhammadu Buhari. Most of them, who are undergraduates, said, ‘No Idea.’ .
At the end of the exercise, there was no winner as it was a brazen embarrassment to the sensibilities of not only the organizers but the state as a whole. Ifeanyi Uba had to cancel the contest.
The car prize meant for the winner had to be taken away. .“The organizers of the event should please, try and test the intelligence quotient of would-be contestants before bringing them out for public parade.
Or else, the embarrassment will continue as the state itself has not recovered from the cucumbersaga,” a guest observes.
Some of the questions and answers:
Q: Who is the founder of F.C Ifeanyi Ubah
A: No idea…
Q: Who is the Traditional ruler of Nnewi?
A: No idea…
Q: Who is the president of Nigeria?
A: Dr. Mohammed Buhari…
Q: When u look in the mirror what do u see?
A: Courage and confidence.
Q: If you become the president of Nigeria, what would you do?
A: budget .
During the native attire section when they were asked the creativity of what they were putting on, one said she’s putting on “pure water” cloth while another said she’s putting on cat cloth because “Busu” (pussycat) is her best pet. Lol
