Ajuma Abah, a 24-year-old model from Kogi state, has been crowned winner of the ‘Queen of Peace Nigeria’ pageant for 2021.
According to NAN, the graduate of botany from Kogi State University snagged the much-coveted prize in the early hours of Thursday in Abuja.
Aba, who defeated 25 other contestants to win the contest, was also awarded the overall best queen and the most eloquent queen in camp.
Speaking at the event, Abah appreciated the organisers for the initiative aimed at promoting peace in the country.
“By the help of God, I intend to work with agencies and stakeholders that are interested in promoting peace in the country to settle the unrest that is going on around the states,” she said.
Suleiman Adejoh, national president of messenger of peace foundation(MOPF) who is also the event’s organiser, said the contestants underwent two weeks of mentoring on peace and how to enhance peace in Nigeria and the world in camp.
“Each of them were given copies of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution as amended. They were lectured on peace and security from officers of the Nigeria Police and officials from Institute for Conflict and Peace Resolution and other stakeholders from the United States,” he said.
“The main objective is to work for promotion of peace within Nigeria and across the country irrespective of tribe, gender and religion.
“The Queens will represent the six geopolitical zones of the country. While the lead Queen will be promoting peace in Nigeria, the International Queen shall be responsible to promote peace through Nigerians living abroad.”
Ejiro-Oghene Okokoro, who represented the federal capital territory (FCT), was crowned Queen of Peace (QOP) international.
Other winners are Vivian Anaele, (QOP north central); Jennifer Ezenwa, (QOP north-west); Asabe Ibrahim, (QOP north-east); and Nancy Nkanor, (QOP south-east).
They also include Omobolanle Enitan, (QOP south-west); and Joy Odion, (QOP south-south). Odion also emerged the most friendly and best-behaved queen in camp.
