Mr Nigeria joins the fight against domestic violence

30 June 2014, 11:50

Lagos- Emmanuel Ikubese, Mr Nigeria, who recently came second at the Mr World Pageant in England, has said that he would use his position to fight domestic violence.

Ikubese gave the assurance on Friday night in Lagos during a reception organised in his honour by the Silverbird Group.

"This has always been my passion and I will start a foundation to help to draw attention of the world to it. I will continue to fly the Nigerian flag. This is huge, but I know where I am from,’’ 25-year-old Ikubese said.

He told his audience that it was an honour to represent Nigeria on the world stage, adding that  the country was well represented with a great sense of responsibility.

"I went to England to represent Nigeria. It was an honour to represent my country and I am ready for the responsibility that comes with my position. I am Mr Nigeria and I am the second most-desirable man in the world at the moment but it is not about me, it is about my country, Nigeria,” he said.

He thanked his parents, who were present at the occasion, for supporting him all along, and promised never to disappoint them.

 Ikubese earned the rights to represent Nigeria at the Mr World Pageant when he won the Mr Nigeria 2014 contest in Lagos on April 26 after defeating 19 other contestants.
