Barely 9 months after being crowned 2017 winner of Ghana’s foremost pageantry, Miss Ghana, Margaret Dery has resigned amidst speculations. The beauty queen reportedly sent the organizers an email stating her decision to step down.

It is, however, unclear the reasons for Dery’s resignation but she posted on her twitter page last week warning aspiring beauty queens not to patronise the event describing it as a deception.

Following reports of her resignation, Margaret took to Twitter to confirm the news while sharing with her followers that her short term as Miss Ghana was the worst period of her life.

She added that:

Meanwhile, Exclusive Events Ghana, organisers of the Miss Ghana pageant say they have “gladly accepted” the resignation of Dery.

A statement by Exclusive events stated that the “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.
