“Our girls don’t have integrity anymore” – Ex-MBGN, Omowunmi
Former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN 2005), Omowunmi Akinnnifesi percieves that most children in Nigeria, especially the girls, lack good morals and integrity.
In a chat with Daily Sun, Omowunmi opened up on her intentions of going into international imaging and etiquette. “I want to teach women not only how they should appear but how they should also behave and this is important.”
She further went on to speak on the moral standards of today’s youths, according to her;
“When you come across some of our children these days, especially the girls, you would notice they don’t have integrity anymore. They lack morals and manners and these are the things that make a woman. These are part of the content. The new generation of youths is not growing with our culture, so we need to retrain them on how to behave. They have to imbibe the culture of respect for elders and how to behave like a proper lady. They also need to learn how to host visitors; do fine dinning; how to speak, sit down, talk; eat certain kinds of food.
We hardly train people on some of these things in Nigeria. People don’t believe they are necessary. But it’s very important. I attended Queens’ College, Lagos and way back then; they used to teach us these things. But these days, the students are only taught Maths, English and all those important subjects but as for moral etiquette, it’s no longer there.”
