The first-ever Miss Nigeria, Grace Atinuke Oyelude, has turned 90 today and Miss Nigeria organizers decided to recognise her by celebrating her on Instagram,
Oyelude was crowned Miss Nigeria in 1957 after beating over 200 Nigerian girls in the pageant.
Oyelude disclosed in some past interviews that she became Miss Nigeria by accident and she did not initially plan on it.
Her brother, a broadcaster, noticed the pageant adverts in the newspaper and enrolled her without her consent in Lagos, despite the fact that she was still living in Kano.
She was admitted to the school of nursing at Ashford, Kent, England, after winning the pageant, that accompanied a reward of 200 pounds and a two-week return ticket to London. She would become a state licensed nurse in 1961.
She studied at the St. Thomas Hospital School of Midwifery in London, where she graduated in 1962 as a state certified midwife SCM.
She also earned a Diploma in Nursing and Hospital Administration from the Royal College of Nursing in England in 1971, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Hospital Administration in 1976.
Miss Nigeria wrote: Happy 90th birthday to the first-ever Miss Nigeria, Madam Grace Oyelude from the year 1957.
She was born in Kano to James Adeleye Oyelude and Marthan Dantu from Kogi state and was raised in Northern Nigeria.
She is a registered nurse, Midwife, and hospital administrator.
We wish her a fabulous 90th birthday 🎉. Cheers to a milestone 🥂🤗🥰.

This is so sad and traumatizing for not only his family but the world at large.
This barbaric act is still being practiced in most schools amongst student and they keep getting a away with it but not this time.
I have been so devastated and all that could come to my mind while watching this video is what if it’s my child !!
The perpetrators of this wicked act might go free if there’s no strong evidence to prove their guilt and later cause more havoc, but with a collective effort we must all make sure justice is served for Sylvester
A boarding school should always have CCTV in most areas to monitor the kids. The school needs to render a reasonable explanation and make sure the culprits are brought to justice.”
