Beauty queens in the country have been urged to be good ambassadors of their states with a view to using their good offices to campaign for peace in the country.

Bayelsa State Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Deacon Markson Fefegha gave the charge while receiving Miss Carnival Anambra as well as Miss Tourism Taraba and Imo states in his office in Yenagoa.

Assuring them about their safety in the state, Deacon Fefegha urged the beauty queens to use their offices to advise young girls to be well behaved and not to throw away the etiquette of the African society.

He assured them that the ministry will give them the necessary support to ensure proper enlightenment on their pet projects in and around the state.

The Information Commissioner however expressed dissatisfaction that in recent years, world attention has been focused on the prevention of HIV to the detriment of the fight against other equally deadly diseases like malaria and typhoid.

Speaking earlier, Queen Ike Sunshine, the Miss Carnival Anambra State said they were in the Commissioner’s office to solicit the ministry’s support in the execution of their collective pet project in the state which is the Education of the African Child.

They commended the State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson and his wife for the hospitality accorded to them since their arrival in the state.



  1. I believe strongly that beauty is the first step to endear the world to a woman. Next is academic prowess for the upward mobility of a girl. One is thus grateful to Nigeria for it’s emphasis on female beauty, female education and female power. One is speaking from personal experience as a girl I pushed to run for the Ms.Nigeria title made it and is now doing well in the United States with her family. As a matter of fact, she has been very useful to the Kalabari people as an activist . Next is my class mate in grad school at the University of Miami. She was surprisingly a conservative in her political beliefs but liberal socially. I capitalized on her zest for life and pushed her to “Go For It”. She made Miss Florida, got fame and fortune. All i gained was free beer in the clubs. Next is my former student who won some big money beauty contest and is now married to some millionaire . She is gainfully employed in some branch of the US govt. Over-all, it is a good thing. Remember that good things happen to people who hang around with pretty, educated girls.
