Meet The 26 Beautiful Girls Representing Their States At The 2017 Miss Nigeria Pageant

Every year for the past 60 years, the Miss Nigeria Pageant has selected beautiful Nigerian women to represent Nigeria’s rich culture and heritage.

The pageant has unveiled the contestants who will portray Nigeria’s rich heritage this year.  The selected contestants will be judged based on their punctuality, etiquette and daily tasks. Here are the contestants and the State they represent.

1. Annalisa John Umanah – Akwa Ibom State


2. Patience Adokpe – Benue State


3. Ezinne Agbom- FCT


4. Louella Eze-  Anambra State


5. Mildred Peace-  Adamawa State


6. Achadu Gracefil- Borno State

It's an 'Alkiba' affair! (What movie character does this outfit bring to mind?) Cross River State's indigene and Borno State rep, Achadu Gracefil is all shades of regal in this outfit mostly worn by royalties in Borno State during marriage ceremonies and traditional festivals. Did you know a tribe in Nigeria has the 'Alkiba' as its traditional attire? . . . . #RoadToMissNigeria2017 #MissNigeriaAt60 #MissNigeria #MissNigeria2017 #MNAt60 #MN2017 #EmpoweringWomen #BeautyAndBrains #BeyondBeauty #MissNIgeria2017BootCamp #EmpoweringWomenBeyondBeauty #DiamondJubilee #BeingMissNigeria #GreenGirlProject #GirlPower #BeautyPageant #naijagirlskillingit #Naijafashion #Instafashion #BossLady #GreenGirl #GirlPower #MissNigeria2016 #60thanniversary #Naija
