It was established last week that, the 2013 winner of Miss Ghana- Guisseppina Baafi has resigned, though organizers of the pageant-Exclusive Events Ghana tried saying, the winner was sacked or stripped off because of misconduct.
GhanaCelebrities.Com has been told a lot since then, and as we reported some few days ago, some of the reasons which led to Guisseppina Baafi’s resignation are shocking—which will soon come to light.
Razz Newspaper which comes out every Wednesday in Ghana has been digging into the Miss Ghana issue too—and they’ve reported on what they have found so far.
Read below for the full Report from Razz Newspaper…
The longest-running beauty pageantry in Ghana, ‘Miss Ghana’ has seen turmoil over the years under different event organizing firms; from Mediawhizz Kidz to Sparrow Productions. Many had high hopes that the usual uproar that has characterized the pageant over the period would cease after the takeover by Exclusive Events headed by Inna Patty, a former winner – but that hope is short-lived.
The ‘Miss Ghana’ pageant has been thrown into a state of confusion after the organizers released a statement stripping the winner, Guisseppina Baafi off her title and all other privileges.
After thorough investigations into the impasse by Razz Newspaper, it was uncovered that the 2013 winner, Miss Baafi and the organizers have had disagreements for the past months. Investigations prove that the organizers presented the winner with a contract and wanted her to sign but after reading through it, Miss Baafi refused to append her signature to the deal. She requested to show the contract to her lawyer for guidance, a request which was flatly rejected by the organizers.
Her refusal to sign whatever contract prompted the organizers to take away some major prizes she won at the pageant including the car and the house a month ago, way before the organizers released a statement stripping her off her crown.
Investigations also revealed that the case is being handled by the Airport Police Station after an official complaint was lodged.
The paper also found out that; after the announcement of the strip, the crown and its accompanying prize package must be handed over to the runner-up but interestingly, the two runners-up of the 2013 pageant are refusing to accept the crown.
Sources close to the runners-up claim that, they are not happy with how the organizers have handled issues concerning the pageant. They are also preparing their resignation letters to hand over their positions.
As it is now, with the winner resigned and runners-up threatening to resign as well, the organizers are in a fix and racing against time to have a representative to groom and present at the 2014 Miss World pageant slated for London in December.
