Another Anambra Beauty Pageant Mess!

The festive period was as exciting as it was interesting in different aspects. Each event had its unique features and side shows. So it was across the country except war-torn areas.
One event which most people are still talking about held in Nnewi, Anambra State. It was the Ifeanyi Uba sponsored Nnewi Youth Fiesta of which was the Miss Nnewi beauty pageant.
Most people were disappointed at the level of knowledge the 16 contestants had concerning basic information. The gathering was thoroughly pissed for the inability 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; Who the president of Nigeria is? A contestant excitedly told the gathering that the current president of the federal republic is Dr. Muhammadu Buhari. Most said, ‘No Idea.’These are supposed to be undergraduates! At the end of the exercise, we learn't there was no winner as it was a brazen embarrassment to the sensibilities of not only the organizers but the state as a whole. The organizers of the event should please, try and test the intelligent 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 cucumber saga.
