Two weeks ago, on my morning show on WEFM106.3, just after the minesterial appointees were cleared by the senate, we held an on air competition supported by Scaarabrand.com who’s CEO, Raymond Umeh was with me in the studio. The object wasto analyse each minesterial choice based on their percievedcompetences and predict what ministeries they could best be deployed.
Scaarabrand.com offered side tables built in the company’s factory as the prize for anyone who rightly matched three ministers to their portfolios.
After two weeks of anxiety, we announced the results today. As it turns out, President Muhammadu Buhari took the nation by surprise and none of the contestants correctly predicted what was to come for all three of their guesses.
Morning Mojo caller, Greg, however, came the closest with two out of three correct answers. He predicted that Mrs Kemi Adeosun would become Minister of Finance and Senator Aisha Al-Hassan, Minister for Woman Affairs.
Congratulations, Greg, we have decided to give you the prize. Two more side tables were given by Scaarabrand to Morning Mojo fans Pa Johnson and Amani Inedu.
