 MS. CHIOMA UZOH
 
All is set for the 3rd ‘Face of Okija’ beauty pageant which is billed to hold amid fun fare on the 29th of December, at Okija, Anambra State. The beauty pageant, according to the organizers, is designed to promote humanitarian service and the cultural heritage of the Igbo nation.

Speaking on the contest, Ms.Chioma Uzoh who was crowned in 2014, said, what she learnt while working with the various divisions of the foundation in the past two years was how “to be more tolerant, patient, humble, as well as extremely passionate about charity work. “One can attest to the fact that with all these attributes improves one’s life,”she said. Described as “a beauty pageant with a difference”, Face of Okjia is a rich cultural event aimed at rejuvenating Igbo culture which has been badly eroded by all manner of external influences.
 The Face of Okija supports and promotes Igbo language and culture in addition to laying great emphasis on the qualities of the archetypal African woman which includes honesty and decency. This year, the contest introduces a long-awaited twist with the introduction of a male category. There will be the Queen and the King who will become ambassadors of the Obi Jackson foundation for the duration of their reign. On the reason for these two big decisions, the founder of the Foundation Dr.
Ernest Azudialu Obiejesi said, “In all things, males and females represented including creation and especially in service to humanity, so the Face of Okija must reflect this duality.” The competition is open to Igbo and Okija indigenes below the age of 30 who are fluent in Igbo and hold at least a polytechnic or university degree.
This year, the King and Queen will be hired by the foundation and will earn a fixed salary of 1.4million for one year, an official vehicle for the duration of reign, a scholarship grant of one million naira (N1,000,000 ) and a chance to impact the lives of the indigenes of Okija, Igboland and Nigeria positively through a mix of social welfare programs that they will be required to champion.
