Speaking earlier, President, Gotham City Network, Mr Mayor Isaac Brown, who spoke on behalf of the organisers commended Plateau State Government for all the support given to this year’s pageant.
He mentioned further that if not for the support from the state government, the show would have not been succesful.
Mr Brown urged the state government to maintain the peaceful atmosphere being experienced in the state.
He also pointed out that the event was a testimony that peace has returned to Plateau.
Responding, Hon. Commissioner of Information and Communications, Dan Manjang congratulated Mary Zamani for emerging victorious in the just concluded Miss Plateau Beauty Pageant that was held on November 17, 2019, at Usiji Event Centre.
