55 ladies from all over the African continent have converge on Owerri for the 2018 African beauty pageant.
This year’s African pageant will last for two weeks.
It will climax with the election of the over-all African beauty queen among the queens which would take place on November 29, 2018.
Speaking when the African beauty queens called on him at the Government House in Owerri to inform him of the events, Governor Okorocha called on them to be united against illiteracy in the continent.
The governor said: “It has always been my desire to see Africans under one roof to dramatize Africa Unity so that Africans wherever they may be found would remain a united people.
“Today, that dream has come through, having all parts of Africa to come to Imo State. We are very proud of you. I want you to understand that though languages may seem to divide us, hills and oceans may separate us but what kept us as Africans is more important than the rivers and oceans that separate us”.
He urge them to remember the less-privileged in Africa and become ambassadors for the fight against poverty in the continent.
