BY ANAYO ONUKWUGHA
Convener of Miss Polo International Pageant, Mrs. Ibife Alufoghai, has said the organization does not encourage prostitution and will never allow it’s contestants to use their bodies to raise fund for the organization.
Alufoghai, who disclosed this on Friday in Port Harcourt while briefing newsmen on the upgrading of Miss Polo to an international pageant, said what they organization needs from contestants is intelligence and beauty.
She said, “Our girls won’t sleep with men to raise money for our organization. Basically we don’t encourage prostitution in Miss Polo International. We don’t ask for your money, we raise the money ourselves. We just need you to come with your brain and face, we have the platform to carry out our projects.”
The Miss Polo International convener stated that the upgrading of the pageant was to meet up with the international nature of the Polo game, said that the main aim of the pageant is to improve education across the world.
Alufoghai said, “Miss Polo International is what we want to start now because we realized that polo game is played worldwide. It is an international game and it is only deemed fit that we make the pageant an international one. It is a platform whereby young girls come on board.
“Polo is a game of strength and we want to use the platform of polo to organise a beauty pageant whereby we bring up these young girls to give back to the society. Our major aim of Miss Polo International is to improve education in the world.
“We are starting from Nigeria for now, but we will go to every part of the world. Miss Polo International is open to contestant from all over the world. We need delegates to come from all parts of the world and we are also giving out franchise all over the world.”
Also speaking, Manager of Miss Polo International Pageant, Mandy Stuart, said the organization will organise a Polo ball to raise fund for charity, pointing out that no other pageant has gone into such venture in Nigeria.
Stuart ​said, “We will organise a polo ball to raise fund for charity and I don’t think there is any pageant that does that in Nigeria. The charity will be in terms of schooling to raise the standard of education. We are working at a situation where the emerging queen will be able to identify three schools where we can see if we are in a better position to renovate the schools.
“We will also look at the funding for less privileged children who are not able to go to school and see how we can pay the school fees of some of the children, who are in need. We are going to be very careful in the process because we will screen them very well to identify those who are really in need.  We are also looking at investing in libraries and other areas that can make impact in the society.”
