Mr Nigeria promises to be patriotic to the nation
The current Mr Nigeria, Nelson Enwerem says he will not disappoint his country with support from citizens.
Enwerem who is representing the country at the ongoing Mr World in the Philippines, in a message from the Philippines said in spite of the injury on his knees, he would fight through to the final.
The 24-year-old Mr Nigeria, hurt his knee during the sports challenge category which led to his eliminatation from the category.
“My major problem since I came here was hurting my knee and dropping out during the first challenge (sports challenge) but I’ve been persistent.
“I’ve been fighting though with the pain and limping to compete because I can’t fail my country,” he said.
According to Enwerem who is also a fashion designer, there hasn’t been any elimination so far but we’ve had different category competitions to select winners and am very positive on winning one of them.
He also said that the organisers had started announcing winners of various challenges of which he is positive of bagging one of the categories.
“The sports challenge was won by Mr South Africa, Extreme challenge by Mr Ireland, while the other winners will be announced before the grand finale on Friday.
“I’m very positive of wining one of them,” he said.
He however, described the elimination due to the injury as his major challenge.
