We all remember how the quiz mistress of the National Science and Maths Quiz, Dr. Elsie Effah Kauffman lost her handbag in the midst of jubilation after the winners were declared last year.
So this year, Dr. Kauffman returned with a paper bag instead.
To help prevent a repeat of last year’s incident, armed police personnel were deployed this year to protect her.
Shortly after the end of the quiz and before the final scores were announced, uniformed Police officers were dispatched to vantage points in the aisles and close to the stairs leading to the stage. A police officer also took hold of Dr. Elsie Kauffman’s paper bag which she used this year after her bag was stolen during the celebrations of last year’s final.
Clearly, this action helped, lol! No bag went missing this year.
