The new queen, who succeeds Sylvia Nduka, went home with a Toyota Corolla car donated by the Edo State Government; N3 million and a Cartier wrist watch worth N1 million.

The event was attended by the Edo State Commissioner of Culture and Tourism, Ms Elizabeth Jemitola, and other officials of the state government.

Guests were entertained by music artistes Tuface Idibia, Banky W and Chudy K.

In her valedictory speech, Sylvia said she will never forget her trip to the Miss World pageant in London. She said: “It made me appreciate the value of being a woman more.”

Sylvia described her tenure as “a year of fulfillment, not just as a beauty queen, but as a woman who has been a role model to other women”.
