STATEMENT: Miss Ghana Organizers “Gladly” Accept Resignation Of 2017 Queen

Exclusive Events Ghana, organizers of Miss Ghana pageant have “gladly” accepted the resignation of 2017 Queen, Margaret Dery.

The organizers, in a press release sighted by Cypress Ghana claim they only got to know about Dery’s resignation through the media.

It adds that they tried their “best to lead the winners and runners-up of the beauty pageant to live and act in accordance with the major vision” which 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.”

Margaret Dery, winner of the 2017 edition of Miss Ghana beauty pageant has resigned her post.

She is said to have sent an email to the management of Exclusive Events Ghana, organizers of the pageant to officially inform them of her decision.

The decision comes days after she tweeted that winning the crown is the worse experience of her life.


Cypress Ghana is told, Dery tried months ago to vacate her post but was compelled by her family to hold on.

Organizers tried to salvage the issue with a last minute effort to no avail.

Dery missed out on a recent commissioning of  a water project and donation to the Babuli Witch Camp in Gushegu in the Northern Region.

The project was attended by Afua Asieduwaa Akrofi, 1st runner-up at the 2015 edition of the pageant.
 
Meanwhile, Exclusive Events Ghana is set to launch the 2018 edition of the pageant on Thursday, August 2.

Exclusive Events Ghana Gladly Accepts the Resignation of Margaret Dery


It has come to our attention through the media that the winner of the 2017 edition of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant Margaret Dery has resigned.

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.

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.
