Exclusive Events Ghana, organisers of the Miss Ghana pageant have accepted the resignation of Margeret Dery, Miss Ghana, 2017.
The beauty queen, who was crowned Miss Ghana on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra, says she is no longer interested in holding the office as Ghana’s beauty queen. However, the reason for her resignation is unclear.
In a statement issued by the public affairs department of Exclusive Events Ghana on Tuesday, July 31, the organisers said it had come to their attention through the media that the winner of the 2017 Miss Ghana beauty pageant, Margaret Dery has resigned.
The statement said, “The management of Exclusive Events Ghana, the organizers of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant have gladly accepted the resignation of Margaret Dery in good faith.
The major vision of Exclusive Events Ghana is to promote the culture of discipline, respect for authority, good corporate governance and use the crown to change the lives of the vulnerable and deprived communities.”
The statement continued, “We did our very best to lead the winners and runners-up of the beauty pageant to live and act in accordance with the major vision. That is the more reason why we recently commissioned and donated a water project to the Nabuli Witch Camp in Gushegu in the Northern Region of Ghana. Unfortunately, Margaret Dery never showed up for the programme for reasons best known to her.”
Management of Exclusive Events Ghana are very focused and ever determined to use the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant to help the poor, needy and the vulnerable in rural areas and deprived communities and absolutely nothing can distract us from this noble journey.
We wish Margaret Dery well in her next career and we do pray that she will uphold the ethics of professionalism, respect for contracts as well as show the necessary respect to the new authority she finds herself under.”
