Published

on

Miss Tourism Ghana, arguably one of the most influential beauty pageants in Ghana that grooms young ladies to be abreast with the country’s heritage and tourism, on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, launched its 10th anniversary at the MJ Grand Hotel, East Legon.

According to the organizers, ten years of their journey wouldn’t have been successful without some great personalities in the tourism industry who when they knock on their doors, gladly open up to help the brand, Miss Tourism Ghana.

Speaking at the event, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority Mr. Akwesi Agyeman, commended the founder Mrs. Brew-Hammond for singlehandedly supporting the tourism industry with her initiative to groom young girls to be more abreast with their country and also take the country on the world stage. He promised that his office is ever ready to support the brand to go worldwide.

Mr. Agyeman also suggested that whiles they are campaigning on seeing, feeling, wearing and eating Ghana; patrons should also campaign about keeping Ghana clean to attract more tourist.

South African High Commissioner to Ghana, Lulu Xingwana, also added that tourism ambassadors should consider campaigning for a cleaner Ghana, she shared an experience on her visit to Nzulezu in the Western Region, and she said “Nzulezu is a beautiful place to visit but the sanitation problem there won’t allow more tourists to visit”
The event was attended by some great personalities in the tourism industry and was spearheaded by Mrs. Brew Hammond. She with some past contestants and queens shared some of the memories the brand has had since its birth and how it has impacted their lives.

As part of the 10th anniversary, Miss Tourism Ghana will give an opportunity to young ladies between the ages of 18- 24 to partake in this year’s competition. They will be on the nation’s tourism sector and upcoming initiatives.
Those that can best articulate and demonstrate specific regional values, including customary dances, will be chosen to face off to the grand finale where the eventual winner would be selected.

“The girls do not have to hail from a region to represent it,” Mrs. Brew-Hammond, Events and Operations Director of the pageant explained. “Whoever ultimately wins will showcase Ghana as a whole so we are looking for smart ladies who can sell Ghana effectively.”

The winner of the Miss Tourism Ghana crown will represent the nation at Miss Tourism World, and act as Ghana’s tourism and environmental youth Ambassador at official events in Ghana and internationally.
‘We are not looking for a beauty queen,” Mrs. Brew-Hammond stressed. “We are looking for the young lady who can be trained to best represent Ghana’s beauty.”

Lionel Messi Blasts Barcelona For ‘Throwing’ Luis Suárez Out Of The Club

Published

on

Lionel Messi has launched a fresh attack on Barcelona’s hierarchy for the way the club treated his close friend Luis Suárez after the striker left for rival club, Atlético Madrid.

The Argentine playmaker, who threatened to leave Barça last month and recently hit out at the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu’s leadership, said Suárez was harshly treated and ‘thrown out’ of the club.

In an emotional goodbye post dedicated to Suarez, the club’s third-highest scorer of all time, Messi wrote: “I had already begun to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it truly dawned on me. It’s going to be so difficult to not continue to share every day with you both on the pitches and away from them.

“We’re going to miss you so much. We spent many years together, many mates, many lunches and many dinners. So many things we will never forget, all the time we spent together.

“It will be strange to see you in another shirt and much more to come up against you on the pitch. You deserved a farewell that fit with who you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club. Someone who achieved great things for the team and on an individual level.

“You did not deserve for them to throw you out as they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore.”

Ya me venía haciendo la idea pero hoy entré al vestuario y me cayó la ficha de verdad. Que difícil va a ser no seguir compartiendo el día a día con vos, tanto en las canchas como afuera. Los vamos a extrañar muchísimo. Fueron muchos años, muchos mates, comidas, cenas… Muchas cosas que nunca se van a olvidar, todos los días juntos. Va a ser raro verte con otra camiseta y mucho más enfrentarte. Te merecías que te despidan como lo que sos: uno de los jugadores más importantes de la historia del club, consiguiendo cosas importantes tanto en lo grupal como individualmente. Y no que te echen como lo hicieron. Pero la verdad que a esta altura ya no me sorprende nada. Te deseo todo lo mejor en este nuevo desafío. Te quiero mucho, los quiero mucho. Hasta pronto, amigo.

On Thursday, an emotional Suarez said goodbye to Barcelona and paid tribute to Messi after sealing a switch to Atletico Madrid. The Uruguay international had previously made it clear that he wanted to stay and see out his contract but was told by Barca’s new coach Ronald Koeman that his playing days were over at the club.

Suarez helped the club win four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Rey crowns, and the Champions League in 2015. He scored 195 goals and provided 113 assists in 283 outings for the club before his exit.
