The next Miss Nigeria 2018 won't be about beauty alone - Organisers

The organisers of Miss Nigeria beauty pageant, Daily Times Nigeria, have said that the 2018 winner will not be chosen based on physical attributes alone.

Ezinne Akudo- Anyaoha, the creative director of Miss Nigeria, made this known at a media interview held in Lagos on Wednesday.

She said "We are committed to finding a young lady who defies the stereotypical perception of beauty queens as just superficial, Miss Nigeria 2018 must embody all the attributes of a strong female leader. She must be beautiful, socially conscious and committed to positively influencing young women across the country and continent."

She also announced the cancellation of the registration fee for the 2018 pageant. According to her, the decision was taken to make the pageant an all-inclusive one and to prevent financial restraints on the part of young ladies who are truly deserving of the ultimate title.

The organisers added that the competition is open to ladies between 18-25 years old with "exemplary leadership qualities. "They must also be able to align excellently with the organisation's mission to empower women beyond beauty. In addition, six core targets would be crucial in the selection of the ultimate winner of its prestigious title this year. They include Education, Environment, Arts & Culture, Health, Financial Management and Technology."
