A statement from the organizers said that she had on Thursday carried out a similar activity at the premises of DAAR Communications where the managing director, news services, Mr. Imoni Amarere joined the team.
Queen Mended who arrived Abuja on Wednesday was first hosted to a dinner by the Angolan Ambassador to Nigeria who commended the Cross River State government for the initiative and promised to visit the state soon.
She later visited some media stations including AIT where she bared her mind on her life as the maiden Miss Africa and the hunt for her successor which has since begun.
