It was a night of splendour and fun as guests from all walks of live came in their numbers to witness the first ever Miss Health 2016 Beauty Pageant at the popular Ladi Kwali Hall of Sheraton hotel Abuja where 23-year-old Miss Rita Chinedu won the revered crown as the 2016 Miss Health.
The competition, which was tough between 30 elegant contestants, was described as one of the most free and fair contests in the history of pageantry in Nigeria.
Speaking shortly after the event, the excited and fulfilled organiser of Miss Health, Nicolas Bibiem, popular with his stage name ‘Nick B’ said he is happy the contest did not follow the trend in the beauty pageant industry where winners are known before the end of the pageant, but rather, it is totally out for the game and suspense where the crowned queen will know that her crown didn’t just come easy, so as to enable her work to save lives which is what the competition represents.
He further called on the federal government and other relevant agencies to support this laudable project that aims at reaching the health under-serve citizens.
He added that any queen who is not ready to work will be dethroned immediately as the management is not ready to condone any act of laziness and urged all hands to be on deck to make sure the pageant impacts meaningfully on lives of citizens.
Speaking after her win, the 23-year-old Rita Chinedu said she will make sure she reaches out to those suffering from various ailments while calling on partners to help in making her reign a success.
The event also witnessed A-List entertainers within and outside Abuja, politicians, media men and women and other dignitaries who acknowledged the fun they had on the day.
