A stately welcome reception jointly put together by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, and Exclusive Events Ghana, has been held in Accra for Naa Okailey Shooter, Ghana’s representative at this year’s Miss World beauty pageant.

The strictly-by-invitation event, held at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel on Friday, was to honour and celebrate Miss Shooter’s achievement at the event.

Ghana placed a historic third place position, with Miss Shooter becoming the new Miss World Africa. She also is the first Ghanaian representative to get far in the competition’s 63rd history.

Some of Ghana’s finest corporate heads and dignitaries including the Mayor of Accra, Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, Mr Reginald Laryea, former franchise holder, Togbe Afede, and Constance Swaniker of Accents and Arts, among a host of media personalities and known faces, attended the event.

The Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare, tasked Miss Shooter to work hard to “uplift the Miss Ghana brand, and its beauty with a purpose agenda.”

“We also trust that you will continue to work with your management here in Ghana to continue to promote tourism and other related industries.”

The honourable Minister used the occasion to reiterate her outfit’s belief that Ghana was ready to host the world event, adding, “I can confidently say that Ghana is ready to host such a prestigious event.

“We boast of a wonderful hospitality industry, rich culture and breath-taking tourist sites.”

“In addition, “she said, “The creative industry is booming. The huge revenue generation capacity for tourism and related sectors cannot be over emphasized.”

Miss Naa Oakiley Shooter, who was elegantly dressed on the night, relived her experience at the World event, saying “the greatest part of this entire experience was the privilege to share the rich cultural heritage and beauty of Ghana with the rest of the world.”

“This victory,” she said, “is not for me alone but for all Ghanaians and Africans at large.”

She also thanked persons, institutions, her parents, family and friends for their support throughout her journey to the event.

Inna Maryam Patty, CEO, Exclusive Events Ghana, organizers of the Miss Ghana pageant, told the gathering that her outfit was “determined to work hard to ensure that the Miss Ghana platform is one that continues to be respected and revered.”

She also re-echoed the honourable Minister’s position on Ghana’s hosting of the world event in the coming years, insisting “Exclusive Events Ghana shall beat the drum in every way and at every opportunity that we can.”

“The time has come,” she said.

Entertainment was provided by the Ghana Dance Ensemble and young acts Nino and Kobi Rana.

The event was hosted by Prince Ato Turkson and Precious Kyei Bonsu.

  1. Ghana is such a foolish nation; always overdoing unimportant things and underdoing important things. I thought this has already been celebrated. A so called celebration of a “national achievement” is strictly by invitation? Ghana is flooding with stupid Ministers. How is this achievement benefitting the ordinary Ghanaian whose tax is being used to celebrate this even though he/she wasn’t invited?

    1. @Maame Yaa, Well said, that is Ghana for you and even she did not win the crown. Yet we are wasting state money on this when children cant have access to hospitals and school. what a country

    2. @Maame Yaa,your mother and father and your extended family are the most foolish ,what you and your useless family done for Ghana???

      Sit down with your stupid A.S.S and wait for Ghana to do something before you move your filthy finger …nkwasia nsem Arawaka

      1. @27calibre., My family and I thank you. Now, focus on the damn topic! What has the individuals in the pictures above done for Ghana besides wasting the nation’s money on some unnecessary celebration. We know you can insult but let us also know that you can actually use brain. Their reason(She promoted Tourism) for dragging the Minister into this doesn’t hold water. More than 3/4 of all African nations do not participate in this nonsense yet the whole world knows about them and their tourist sites. CAR, Cape Verde, Burundi, Madagascar, Tunisia, Mauritania and the whole North Africa don’t participate and yet their cultures and tourist sites get promoted more than Ghana especially Egypt. Now my question to an “unfoolish” person like you is; Who and what promotes tourism in the countries who do not participate in the nonsense called Miss
        World?

        Let’s face facts; the girl did well but not to the extend of dragging the Minister into this and wasting States money to fund this. And the annoying part is the strict invitation. This is a trivial and personal achievement which does not benefit the country/individuals in any way. Or do you think, the Minister used her pocket money for this? Again, Ghana is a foolish nation and the Minister of Tourism is very Stupid!

        1. @Maame Yaa, You are too smart a Ghanaian. Ghana is full of idi.ots and that is why the country is not moving forward, yet they keep celebrating God knows what?
          Ghana is a big mess shyt hole with no working laws or any better institution. The only that works in Ghana is corruption and the ministry will only use this reception to steal some big sum from the ordinary Ghana who cannot even afford to go to a hospital, when sick!

      2. @27calibre.,Omg what did she typed wrong for you to insult her like this? Come on that was too damn harsh,, we all know that they’ve invested so much into this miss Ghana thing already which to me feels is total waste of money. She typed the truth so bro’s please apologize to her

  2. This 27 calibre guy koraa wats wrong with him?wen civilised people are commenting,he just comes around and starts a mini war.I think Chris shud do something abt him.
