Mrs. Remi Emelda Ezinne, a 29-year-old communication expert and mother of one has emerged the overall winner of the Mrs. Nigeria beauty queen contest.Mrs. Nigeria is a non-bikini beauty queen contest that seeks to reward outstanding married women, strengthen the marriage institution, campaign on domestic violence and sexual abuses against women/children, and ultimately empower the women and children against economic vulnerability and susceptibility to violent abuses.

In a keenly contested competition held over the weekend at the Pelican Hotel in Lagos, Ezinne, a graduate of International Relations and Diploma holder in Human Resources Management beat 12 others to clinch the coveted crown.

According to the panel of judges’ report, announced by the Managing Director of the Mrs. Nigeria Pageants Limited, Ezinne was adjudged based on her sterling leadership skills, impeccable self-esteem, inspiring marital life, intellectual astuteness, career ambition, oratory eloquence, physical agility, and a number of impressive self-driven community development interventions on human capital development projects especially for women and children around her.

The first runner-up is 24-year-old mother of two and graduate of Sociology, Mrs. Abigail James Ajiduku, while 2nd runner-up is Mrs. Uchenna Henrietta Iheanacho, a 30-year-old banker and Bsc holder in Biochemistry from the Abia State University.

The freshly minted Mrs. Nigeria, who represented Cross Rivers State at the competition, will be representing Nigeria in the 2018 Mrs. Universe contest, holding in the Philippines December 4-11 later this year. In appreciation, the new queen said it is one of the greatest moments of her life adding that the crown is a validation of her hard work for personal development and attestation to her modest contributions to the development of the womenfolk in the country.

“I have always been passionate about the project of women and children. I have two signature projects I have been working on quietly, a physical fitness awareness campaign around my neighborhood. The goal is to encourage married and adult women achieve physical wellness and improved self-esteem. And also my modest annual empowerment programme for young girls and ladies on commercially rewarding skills in the beauty industry.”

Project Manager for Mrs. Nigeria Pageants Limited, Mr. Jude Nnamdi, said besides the crown and prizes, the organisation has equally adopted the three winners as its global ambassadors “with priority attention on the implementation of all of their pet projects.”
