This year’s edition promises to be bigger and better! “We’ll show our ladies how best they could dress and behave as well-cultured African ladies. If they have to borrow anything from the western culture, it should be that basic ingredient of national development, proper home management and the real essence of being a woman” said Otobong Udofia the coordinator of this event.
“Already, contestants from Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and Tunisia are in Uyo for this event and we’re still expecting more between today and Sunday” Said Chris – the Project Manager of this event.
This event, apart from creating opportunities for investors and business organizations to advertise their goods and services, will also provide a platform to source for talent in music, dance, arts, and literature as well as other areas of creative endeavors with a view to harnessing and tapping such for our process of international integration and development.
This year’s edition will also expose numerous tourist attractions (sites) like the historical Mary Slessor Memorial Park, Usaka Beach, Ibeno Beach, the slave Trade Route, Bridge of No Return, State Museum, National Museum, Oron Beach/ Waterfront, Uta Ewa Beach, Ibom Plaza, Rolling Hills, Ibaka Beach, 1929 Women Riot Centre as well as Raffia Crafts Gallery/Souvenir Market, among others that abound in the country.
