The Miss Tourism Nigeria organization has announced the death of Maureen Onu, Miss Tourism Ebonyi 2016.
Maureen had been selected as a finalist for this year’s Miss Tourism Nigeria event set to hold in July. She passed away after a brief illness last week.
Speaking on this devastating loss, Santiago Roberts, CEO of the Miss Tourism Nigeria Organization says “the brand has lost a true and a great gem; Maureen was one of the brightest who was always prompt to carry out instructions/tasks given and willing to learn; she was looking forward to representing her state with pride during this year’s finals and with the hopes of becoming the first ever national tourism queen from Ebonyi State.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this difficult time.
