In an unbiased and competitive environment we discover that great minds are born.

Sometimes I wonder how certain peeps on nairaland defend a lie brazenly for a stipend. I wonder how they will feel if bandit kidnaps them.

Will you tell herdsmen and bandit that you are an APC OR PDP member or Buhari is your godfather?

If federation does not work try conferederation if it doesnt work we try something else until we see a fitting system. We can't be living a lie. Enough

1959 winner was actually from Cameroon(Southern Cameroons to be precise).

She is the only non-Nigerian to have won that contest.

There’s Miss Nigeria and there’s also Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN).

I think the latter is where Bianca Ojukwu falls in
