-Miss Ghana 2017 has resigned
-She officially relinquished the crown after she wrote to the organizers of her decision
Winner of the 2017 edition of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant, Margaret Dery, has resigned.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com, the beauty queen, who was crowned on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra, revealed she was no longer interested in holding the office as Ghana’s beauty queen.
Accra-based Hitz FM gathered that Miss Dery, just after eight months as queen sent an email to the organizers, Exclusive Events Ghana, to formally inform them of her decision.
While the reason for her resignation was unclear, information gathered indicated that the beauty queen had tried some months ago to relinquish the crown but was persuaded by her family not to.
Reliable sources have disclosed that there was a meeting between the 2017 winner and the organizers in a last attempt to salvage the sour relationship between them. However, the meeting could not save the situation.
The 2017 winner of Ghana’s beauty pageant, recently took to Twitter to vent her anger at the organizers.
A recent commissioning of a water project and donation to the Babuli Witch Camp in Gushegu in the Northern Region raised eyebrows after Margaret Dery was conspicuously missing from the event.
That event, which was an initiative of Miss Ghana 2012, was rather attended by Afua Asieduwaa Akrofi, who was also the 1st runner-up at the Miss Ghana 2015 pageant.
Attempts by Hitz FM to reach the organizers of the pageant for a reaction have proved futile.
Meanwhile, Exclusive Events Ghana is set to launch the 2018 edition of the pageant on August 2.
