Speaking to journalists after the event, Miss Tung-Teiya, thanked the organizers of the reality show and her entire family for their support.
She indicated that she is poised to execute her project to impact lives in Northern Ghana. “I will not only carry the crown on my head and cash on my chest, I will make it an emblem and also help in the reduction or eradication of Kayaye.”
Miss Teiya added that “Kayaye exposes our vulnerable young ladies too so many social vices like rape, armed robbery, prostitution and disease outbreaks like the current Covid-19. Kayaye can gradually be a thing of the past if its primary factor unemployment is tackled. As Queen of North Ghana, I will partner with government and private institutions to provide vocational skills to these young women which will give them a source of income. This, I believe will help to reduce if not eradicate Kayaye.”
