As the Miss Ghana 2017 auditions are well underway, the head of the organizing body Exclusive Events, Inna Patty has said prospective queens should not enter the pageant to only win prizes.
Inna, who was crowned Miss Ghana in 2004 and subsequently represented Ghana at the Miss World pageant that same year, noted the competition should not be seen as just a prize-winning venture.
According to her, interested participants should have a sense of service to the nation as their motivation or they should not enter at all.
Speaking in an interview on Abusua FM, Miss Patty stated most young women of today had that “All about Me” attitude, which is a trait not welcome at the Miss Ghana pageant.
“It is a responsibility, about what you can do for the brand and the country… so we really want to emphasize that this year,” she added.
The 2017 Miss Ghana pageant marks its 60th Anniversary since it was launched, commensurate with Ghana’s 60th independence celebration.
As part of the activities slated for the 2017 pageant, a national tour was organized to all of the 10 regions of Ghana to hold auditions for interested participants.
Government has also extended its support to the organizers to celebrate 60 years of the country’s main pageantry show.
