The project coordinator of Miss Nigeria 2018, Chioma Nwigwe, while speaking on the selection process, said:
“This year’s selection though gruelling has been very rewarding. Beyond their looks, every single one of these incredible ladies brings something unique to the table and we can’t wait to see which of them wins the crown”.
Speaking ahead of the beauty pageant, the organisers said the pageantry emerged in 1957: “in response to the realisation that given the right platform, young Nigerian women could positively influence society, drive positive change and inspire other young women both in the country and across the continent.
“Hence, the organisation has consistently selected young women who are beautiful, intelligent, socially responsible, and committed to service to humanity
“The Miss Nigeria position is a job and the title bearer actively champions causes that benefit and promote society. Our target areas are Education, Environment, Arts & Culture, Financial Management and Health.
“On this basis therefore, we constantly look out for exemplary leadership qualities, intellectual depths and passion in aspiring queens. We value fairness and transparency as our winners always emerge through fair, standardized and transparent process.”
