The Imo State House of Assembly, last Tuesday, honoured the winner of the Miss Nigeria 2013, Miss Ezinne Akudo Anyaoha for emerging the winner of the beauty pageant.
DailyStar reports that Ezinne was invited into the Chambers during their session to receive the recognition and honour.
The house had described her achievement as one worthy of recognition and celebration, adding that her effort has not only projected a good image of the Imo woman but has also brought her to international limelight.
So, a motion was moved for her to become the face of the state.
The Speaker Rt Hon. Ben Uwajumogu added that a road be named after her so that it will always be in history that one of their own won the prestigious Miss Nigeria crown as this will serve as an inspiration to other younger girls in the state as well as the unborn.
The House members, however, noted that, this appreciation was necessary to further portray that they are not only interested in politics but they still care about other things in the state such as beauty and brains.
They wished her a very successful reign and prayed that her reign rubs off positively on the people of Imo.
Alongside the adopted motion for her to be the face of Imo and naming a popular road in Owerri after her, was a cash gift of N500,000.
