Fani-Kayode Reacts To Display Of Blood Stained Nigerian Flag In Russia By A Beauty Contestant

Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Aviation Minister, has reacted to a beauty pageant contestant, Udeh Chiamaka Victoria, who showed and waved a bloodstained Nigerian flag on the podium to viewers during the Miss Africa Russia pageantry event on June 13 in Moscow. 

Many Nigerians are debating about the video, which has gone popular on the internet, with many expressing differing viewpoints on the lady's actions.

Miss Chiamaka is seen in the video going out and waving the Nigerian flag before proceeding to both flanks of the podium before hanging it with both hands in the air and bowing.

In his response, Fani-Kayode praises Victoria's actions, stating she done a good job of drawing international attention to the country's reported ongoing atrocities. 

Victoria has beauty, brains, compassion, and a conscience, according to the former Minister. She's a patriot as well. This is both refreshing and energizing. 

May God bless and heal our land! He continued. 

In part, his statement reads: 

"Nigeria's female delegate at the recently finished Miss Africa Beauty Pageant in Russia, displaying a blood-soaked Nigerian flag and drawing international attention to the country's ongoing horrors. This is quite moving! And she is a beauty queen to be proud of!"

As a result, the number of responses to the development has continued to rise. 

While many people criticized the lady's actions, claiming that she was unpatriotic for casting a negative light on the country, others claimed that there was nothing wrong with drawing the world's attention to the country's insecurity crisis. 

But, given the status of the country, do you think Victoria's performance at an international event should be praised or condemned?
