Exclusive Events Ghana, organisers of the Miss Ghana pageant, have issued a statement “gladly accepting” the resignation of the winner of the 2017 pageant, Margaret Dery, in “good faith”.

Prior to her resignation, Ms Dery posted on social media warning aspiring beauty queens not to patronise the event, describing it as a deception.

Her resignation comes as the organisers prepare to organise another edition this year.

CEO of Exclusive Events Ghana, Inna Mariam Patty, has come under intense criticism by past beauty queens who have accused her of forcing winners to sleep with rich men in exchange for sponsorship.

In a statement responding to the resignation on Tuesday, 31 July 2018, Exclusive Events Ghana said they are “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,” the statement issued by the Public Affairs Department of Exclusive Events Ghana added.

Below is the full statement:

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.
