Miss Grand Nigeria (MGN) 2017, Princess Agunbiade, has said that men should be made to undergo the same moral training process as women.
The Ekiti State-born beauty queen told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that there would be less occurrences of sexual molestation if men were included in moral training process.
“Everyone believes that the woman should be perfect.
“But we hardly think about imparting moral disciplines on men.
“As a result of this, men feel entitled to everything they want, including a woman’s body,’’ she said.
NAN reports that Agunbiade, 21, and a graduate of Industrial Chemistry from the University of Port Harcourt, represented Nigeria at the Miss Grand International pageant held in Vietnam in 2017.
According to her, the presence of women in certain offices and positions will bring a total change to the society because women are homemakers.
“I believe women have been sidelined in the past and this is the time for us to come out to do something about it.
“We have very important roles to play in the society.
“MGN is a national beauty pageant set up to promote peace and tourism while empowering women to achieve their personal and professional goals, ‘’ she said.
Agunbiade added that the beauty pageant was a contest with the advocacy that focuses on stopping war and violence.
She said that her pet project was on education because she believed that if people were well educated, they would not accept being political thugs used to cause violence in the country.
