In a statement sent by the management, Mr. Guy Murray-Bruce says “Isabella remains the winner of the MBGN and accordingly is expected to carry out her duties as queen until next year when another queen is chosen”.
“Although she will not be vying for the Miss World title, she will be contesting for the Miss Universe crown, while MBGN Second Runner up, Miss Ifeoma Umeokeke will be at the Miss Tourism International holding later in the year in China”.
The decision to exchange her role and that of the 1st runner up was the decision of the organizer and for the collective interest of the company and country he further added.
It’s our wish not to only raise the bar but replicate the groundbreaking records achieved by Agbani Darego, as the first Black Africa’s Miss World 2001 as well as some past queens, who have achieved remarkable results at some renowned international pageants in the recent past”.
