The girls, who were split into four teams, representing features of Geely cars; Safety, Hi-Tech, Power and Design, engaged in various team activities, including a volleyball tournament.
The culmination of the two days of fun was ultimately fulfilled on the 18th of September at the Convention Centre, Eko Hotel and Suites, when Miss Abuja, Oluchi Madubuike; a certified nursing practitioner was crowned the MBGN 2021 and also the holder of the title- Miss World Nigeria 2021.
