MBGN 2018 Will Take Place In Bayelsa
The search for a beautiful, vibrant, young and talented lady is near as organisers of the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria have announced that the 2018 edition will take place in Yenagoa, Bayelsa.
This will be the third time the pageant is held in Yenagoa as the 2013 and 2014 editions of the MBGN were held there. This year Bayelsa is pulling out all the stops once again to host the pageant as well as promote the state as a tourism destination of choice, using the established brand name of the MBGN.
The process of picking the next queen started from a nationwide screening exercise which took place in Enugu, Port Harcourt, Abuja and rounded up in Lagos. With the completion of the screening, 37 lucky girls were selected for the competition.
These girls will now go through on a two week long camp session where they will get extensive training and grooming in choreography, cat-walking, poise and comportment to prepare them for the main event on September 21st at the Gabriel Okara Cultural Center, Yenagoa.
Speaking on this year’s pageant which is themed “Girl Child Education,” the Bayelsa State Governor’s Special Adviser on Tourism Development and Entertainment, Guy Murray-Bruce, said the beauty pageant would offer an opportunity to popularise and promote the state’s tourism and cultural potentials.
A former Secretary to the Bayelsa State Government, Professor Steve Azaiki, who is the Chairman, Organising Committee of MBGN, stated that the year’s edition would bring global attention to Bayelsa as well as the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.
“It will be a good opportunity for the state to show off its educational institutions, world-class medical facilities, and tourist attractions such as Oloibiri Oil Museum, Brass beautiful sea and its white sands,” he added.
Also, the Commissioner for Tourism Development in Bayelsa State, Mrs. Ebiere Musah, disclosed that the government was poised to exploit the 2018 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant to showcase the state in a positive light.
The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2018 will be broadcast LIVE on Silverbird Television Network and on partner stations.
