An ex-Most Beautiful Model in Nigeria and ex-miss Goodwill Ambassador Africa, Queen Victoria Nworgu has embarked on mentorship programme where she coaches young girls on the need to recognise their self-worth, imbibing good conduct while also contributing meaningfully to national development. 

Queen Nworgu during one of such outreaches in Airforce Girls Comprehensive School Abuja urged the young girls to demonstrate seriousness in their academic pursuit and remain focused for a better future. 

In her addressed she tasked them on skills that will make them competitive in the labour market, noting that acquiring extra skills will enable them stand out and be able to cater for themselves as they continue their journey in life. 

She said Nigeria has for years remained an import-dependent country, a tide she said could be changed if young people commit themselves to entrepreneurship and help in producing what the country consumes, both in agriculture, ICT, technology, fashion industry and more. 

She cited the example of Innoson Motors which she said is gradually become a household name who has contributed in further bridging import gap of luxury cars, urging the students to deploy their creativity into action for nation building. 

Queen Nworgu noted with dissatisfaction that the lines of ethnicity and religion has been widened which according to her has brought about disharmony and hate, urging her mentees to be campaigners and advocates of love and peaceful co-existence in the country. 

"Our parents have tried in holding the bond of our national unity and it is up to us to deploy our awareness in driving unity and oneness. Nobody should be unfairly treated on the basis of their ethnic background, nobody should be hated and unjustly vilified on the basis of their mode of worship. 

"We should be the torch bearers of the unity of our country. We must exhibit tolerance and shun hate. We should all work towards a nation we will all be proud of", she stated. 

She urged the students not to be unduly influenced by things they come across on social media but work towards attaining greater heights with honesty and commitment. 

According to her, nude has become a very common sight in the social media and in real life, appealing to them to uphold their pride and self-esteem irrespective of the influence. 

Highlight of the event was the distribution of study materials to the students.
