Margaret Dery, the winner of Miss Ghana 2017 beauty pageant has resigned while stating that being Miss Ghana was one of the worst experiences of her life.
The beauty queen, who was crowned 8 months ago, claims she sent the organizers an email informing them of her decision to step down.
She also took to Twitter to confirm the news, writing:
“Being a miss Ghana queen has honestly been one of the worst experiences of my life, yeah, I know it looks good on the outside, but it’s just one big sham on the inside. All that glitters is not gold. Ladies, you don’t need a crown on your head to succeed.”
She also added:
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty, truth and compassion against injustice, lying and greed. No more will I cover up for anyone that doesn’t deserve it. The whole world will know the truth soon.”
The organisers in a statement issued on Tuesday, July 31, said they got the news of Margret Dary’s resignation through the media although the 2017 winner had claimed that she sent the organisers an email. The organisers say they have “gladly accepted” the resignation of Margaret Dery.
In the official statement issued by Exclusive Events Ghana, they said:
“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.”
