From over 50 hopefuls, 20 top finalists were selected for the week long camp activities for the historic Miss Independence Anambra 2014 pageant.

Contestants were treated to a classical Welcome Party at Trig-Point Hotels which had in attendance the Director of the Miss Independence Anambra 2014, Nwando Okwuosa, (Miss Nigeria, 2003/2004), the following commissioners; Obi Nwankwo (Science and Technology), Evaristus Uba (environment), Tony Onyima (Information and Culture) and Prof Solo (Budget and Planning).

Also present were Mr Willie Nwokoye (Principal Secretary to Chief Willie Obiano), James Eze and Emeka Ozumba, Senior Special Assistant and Special Assistant to Gov Obiano on Media.

Some Chief Executives in the State were also spotted at the party including Chief Jonas Tabansi, CEO of Adama Benjo, Chief Ben Uba, MD, Ben Flo Ltd and many other dignitaries.

Recall that the Anambra Broadcasting Service is one of the near moribund state owned institutions overhauled by the Governor of the State, Chief Willie Obiano, on assumption of office, to give it a befitting status and ensure maximum productivity.
