Miss Nigeria pageant holds december 19
The 40th edition of the Miss Nigeria Pageant has been scheduled to hold on December 19, 2016 at the Eko Hotels and Suites. This was made known at a press parley organized by the Folio Media Group this week in Lagos.
Speaking at the press briefing, Dr. May Ikeora, an ex-beauty queen of Miss Nigeria pageantry, said: “All participants are expected to be Nigerian citizens between the ages of 18 to 25 years, be of good health and character, and speak fluent English etc. She further urged participants to follow due registration procedure concerning the entry payment detailed on the Miss Nigeria platform.
“Becoming Miss Nigeria isn’t all about engaging in social media or going to parties, but it’s all about becoming a representative to other women. What we are looking for is a young lady who has discipline, great values and who can also be a role model to other aspiring young ladies around the world”.
“This medium is to encourage young girls who are afraid to stand for themselves, the Miss Nigeria pageantry is not all about indecent dressing or bikinis, but it’s all about making you feel empowered,” she added.
Winner of the 2015 Miss Nigeria pageant, Leesi Peter-Vigboro, a graduate of Computer Science from the University of Port Harcourt, expressed herself on her tenure over the year during a brief interview. “Becoming Miss Nigeria isn’t something I’ve always dreamed of, I was actually interested in the prize but as the year went by, I’ve been able to understand the true meaning of this project. I was able to embark on a nationwide tour to train primary, high school and university students on the act of using nonviolence as an effective tool to resolve conflicts,” she said. She encouraged all participants to be determined and also abstain from any immoral act in order not to ruin the organization.
