The Association of Beauty Pageant & Fashion Exhibition Organizers of Nigeria, Cross River State Chapter has taken a bold step to stop in totality all illegal and unregistered pageants from hosting without proper approval. We are fully committed to ensuring that a proper regulatory system is employed to further curtail the vices that seems to have eaten the industry deeply making us further lose our status as a tourism destination in Nigeria. Therefore, we must as a matter of urgency protect and safeguard our tourism status quo.

We are also committed to tackle issues of fairness in judging, and delivery of fair judgement on stage to crown deserved winners. The idea of stage-managing a contest to crown winners pre-arranged to win, leaves an impression in the minds of participants that pageantry is a scam, and that continues to spread bad impression as regard Pageantry across the state, which we need to regain.

Pageantry is a beautiful thing, therefore it should not be seen on the premise of evil as some individuals have turned it to be. We should embrace it, love it, accept it and respect those opportune to be crowned Queens

The general public is hereby advised as a matter of carefulness to avoid totally any Brand or organisation proposing a pageant without any approval or endorsement letter from the association for the purpose of fraud.

Inline with the above, all intending pageants or delegates willing to participate in any contest across the state should get proper details about such contest from the association Secretariat.
