Miss Earth Liberia 2020 has been postponed indefinitely which was scheduled for 28th March 2020. The postponement of the beauty pageant, according to the organizers and partners, is in response to the government’s appeal for public gatherings to be restricted to help contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The news comes in line with various national as well as international pageants being postponed due to the rampant rise in the pandemic. Wokie Dolo, the CEO of La Queen Entertainment, said while she regrets postponing the pageant, the prevailing health issues caused by the coronavirus, COVID-19, is a major concern and as a responsible company, they have to join the effort of the government to help minimize its spread.

We are fighting an invisible and fast-moving opponent but abiding by health protocols such as the restriction or cancellation of public gathering, which is more important to defeat the virus. The health of our supporters, staff, and contestants remains our number one priority and it is in this spirit that we agreed collectively to postpone the event, even though we have invested a lot of resources and time,” she said.

A new date for the event will be communicated to the public once Liberia is declared corona virus free. Prior to the postponement, pre-launch and the kickoff of the Miss Earth Liberia Beauty Pageant had already taken place, as well as arrangements made with several international guests to grace the occasion. The guests include Joseph Van Vicker, Nigerian award-winning Actress Esin Evelyn Okon, Miss Earth Nigeria, Miss Universe Nigeria, and Actor Eddie Watson Jr, among others.
