SS: Check out the reasons why Voltarians are called number 9

Kindly follow for more exciting and interesting information

Perhaps you might have heard someone refer to a Voltarian as number 9 but you probably did not know what that really meant. Well, today I am here to educate you how the title number 9 came to rest on the shoulders of our beloved brothers and sisters of the Volta region. Just relax and read on.

1957 was a great year for Ghana. It was when our beloved country had independence from our colonial masters. There were many jubilations across the length and breadth of Ghana. To prove to the oppressors that the black man is indeed capable of managing his own affairs, the first edition of Miss Ghana was organized.

As the programme still stands, contestant's from all the regions are chosen to represent their people and the best or the winner chosen at the end of the pageant. Luckily for the people of the Volta region, the winner was a Voltarian by the name Monica Amekoafia. She carried an identification number of 9 so as the Mc was mentioning the winner, she said "The winner for the first edition of Miss Ghana is contestant number 9"

Monica Amekoafia was born in 30th June in 1934 and expired in 24th June 1990 as a result of chronic asthmatic attack. May her soul rest in peace. A statue was mounted in Hoehoe in memory of her.
