Pearl Entertainment Modeling Concept (PEMC), the organisers of the forthcoming 2020 Most Adorable Queen In Nigeria/Nigeria Noble Achievers Award,  has postponed the event  due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Samuel Osioh, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of PEMC, said the decision to postpone the event was taken  in collaboration with its sponsors and partner.

Osioh said that 20 contestants had registered for the 3rd edition of the event earlier scheduled for April 18 in Lagos.

“The postponement has become necessary due to the outbreak and the spread of  COVID-19 pandemic which is equally affecting  the  country

“We are complying with  the Federal and  Lagos State Governments’ declaration of  total lockdown of the state  and self-isolation of the citizens  to stop the  spread of coronavirus in the state

“It is in our character to take the decision; as a matter of fact, this is the first of its kind, but the good health and safety of our guests are  paramount to us,” he said

According to him, 20 girls have registered as contestants while the registration which started  in November 2019 is  still open for other interested girls and will  run through April.

The Most Adorable Queen in Nigeria Pageant is an innovative, and  educative contest aimed at giving African girls a platform not only to showcase their beauty, but also to groom them as ambassador

The winner  becomes  an ambassador for young girls charged with designing and implementing a peace programme to help fight violence among youths.
