Exclusive Event Ghana Company, organizers of the yearly Miss Ghana pageant, will in a couple of hours issue an official statement to react to several allegations leveled against it boss, Inna Patty, by past queens of the competition.
The organization says it has taken the allegations by Stephanie Karikari, Miss Ghana 2010, Antoinette Delali Kemavor Miss Ghana 2015 and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi Miss Ghana 2013 very seriously, and will be out by close of today with an appropriate response.
Speaking to Sammy Flex on Accra-based Zylofone FM Monday morning, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Miss Ghana pageant, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo said the issue considering it source could not be swept under the carpet because of the people involved saying “these are people who have won before”.
According to the senior journalist, in the past, some of these claims have been made but they could not be substantiated but now if it is coming from past winners, it has to be taken serious so that it is dealt with once and for all.
Speaking in both English and Twi, Arnold said “If you are hit with such an allegation, it’s no joke, it’s injurious. This is a top brand, a good brand so it’s important we have a little patience” for the organization’s side.
Asked how Miss Patty is taking all the news making the rounds, Arnold said his boss was very fine because she is a very strong woman and understands all that is going having gone through the process herself as a former Miss Ghana.
“She’s fine she’s a very strong woman, mind you Inna is a former beauty queen she understands the situation” , he said.
The organization did not also rule out legal action against the three ladies.
“It is highly possible; I cannot rule that out like I said, it is a very serious allegation. So as I said let’s wait for the official response. I think the audio recording and publication are audible enough”, Mr Asamoah Baidoo said.
On Sunday, Ghanaians were hit with the news that Inna Patty, the current owner of Miss Ghana’s franchise holding company, Exclusive Events Ghana, allegedly exploits winners of the annual event to raise money.
