The drama surrounding the resignation of Miss Ghana 2013, Nana Akua Baafi and both runners-up is getting bigger, as Inna Mariam Patty, Chief Executive of Exclusive Events, organisers of the pageant, has launched a blistering attack on the resigned queen, describing her as a lazy person who thought being a Miss Ghana was only about wearing a crown and sitting in a car.
Inna Patty, speaking on Peace Fm’s Entertainment Review last Saturday, disclosed that her outfit had embarked on a search for a new Miss Ghana to represent the country at this year’s Miss World event because of the resignation of her two runners-up.
Inna Patty also confirmed that her mother recently went to the official residence of Miss Ghana during which a fight ensued and alleged that some Russians even rushed into the house in an attempt to defend the young lady.
She said the Russians ended up fighting with the security detail at the residence and nearly vandalised the place.
Inna insisted her mother did not do anything wrong but was politely speaking to Nana Akua Baafi when the Russians “unlawfully entered the house” and started misbehaving.
Inna Patty could not tell the exact offence Nana Akua Baafi committed against the organisers but insisted that the young lady’s actions amounted to misbehaviour.
Inna Patty could not provide an answer when she was asked to explain why the first runner-up, Margaret Kuma Mintah and second runner-up, Crystal Selorm Amudzi also decided to resign their positions and stop working with Exclusive Events.
During the live radio interview, an attempt by Exclusive Events to make listeners believe that the first runner-up, Margaret Kuma Mintah resigned because she wanted to focus on her education got the angry lady to call into the live programme to make some rather damaging revelations.
Margaret said: “I resigned because I had no choice. The organisers were not serious. They did not know what they were about and I realised I was wasting my time because my education was at stake and I decided it was better to return to school than waste my time with them because they were just not organised.
“The whole thing is only about they sending you out to raise money from companies and even during the competition, we were asked to go out and raise some money which would make you qualify to the next stage. Even after we won, they were still on this ‘go out and raise money from companies’ type of talk and they won’t even give us a means of transportation. There was a vehicle to go round with but there was no fuel in it so we could not do anything. I got tired and quit because it was not worth sacrificing my education for them,” Margaret Kuma Mintah added.
