Miss Rivers, Nyekachi Douglas, was crowned the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2019 last October 11 at the Gabriel Okara Cultural Centre in Bayelsa. The 21-year-old beauty edged out 36 other contestants to win the national competition.
Nyekachi succeeds last year’s winner, Anita Ukah. She will represent Nigeria at the Miss World 2019 pageant in London, England in December.
The runners-up were Olutosin Araromi (MBGN Universe), Pamela Ifejoku (MBGN Tourism), Akeelah Aminu (MBGN Ecowas), and Becky Ogene. Olutosin will represent the country at Miss Universe 2019 pageant.
Nigeria won the Miss World crown once with Agbani Darego in 2001. The West African country, however, is yet to win Miss Universe.
