Miss Ghana Winner of 2017 edition Margaret Dery has resigned.

The beauty queen, who was crowned on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra, says she is no longer interested in holding the office as Ghana’s beauty queen.

According to Hitz FM, Miss Dery has sent an email to the organisers, Exclusive Events Ghana, to formally inform them of her decision.

While the reason for her resignation is unclear, it has been gathered that the beauty queen had tried some months ago to relinquish the crown but was persuaded by her family not to.

Sources have disclosed that there was a meeting between Miss Derry and the organisers in a last attempt to salvage the sour relationship between them. However, the meeting could not save the situation.

Meanwhile, Exclusive Events Ghana is set to launch the 2018 edition of the pageant on August 2.
