Nigeria: New Pageant Debuts

Ereon Pageantry is to organize a new national pageant in June 2013.

According to Miss Mercy Elema, executive director of Ereon Pageantry, "It will be the first of its kind in Nigeria as nine beauty queen ambassadors would emerge for the final from the 36 states of Nigeria that would be contesting for the exalted crowns as preparations are already in top gear. The national pageantry will be in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs Abuja".

The aim of the national pageant is to promote national values, African beauty and civilization. In a related development, Miss Taiwo Samson has assumed office as deputy general manager of Ereon Pageantry while Miss Mabel Amu is the new social manager.
