The winner of the 2017 Queen of Akwa Ibom Teenagers Forum, Abasiodiong Eyo Inyang was dethroned after releasing semi-nude photos to mark her 20th birthday. In the Semi-nude photos of Abasiodiong Eno Inyang, parts of her breasts were visible and she also seemed to be smoking.
In a press statement, President of the Akwa Ibom State Teenagers Forum explained that the organisation believes in maintaining high moral standards, describing the attitude of the former Queen as childish.
That Miss Abasiodiong Eyo has been dethroned as the 2017 Queen of Akwa Ibom Teenagers Forum and excommunicated from the Forum, forthwith. Ours is a Forum, committed to raising the bar in pageantry, with high moral etiquettes, and as such, has zero tolerance for indiscipline in any form, whatsoever. A new Queen, Miss Meggy Linus has been appointed and will be crowned within 48 hours of the Release. Miss Linus was the First Runner-up at the 2017 Edition of Mr/Miss Akwa Ibom Teen. We sincerely regret any inconvenience the puerile behaviour of our former Queen may have caused the general public, while also urging social media users to refrain from tarnishing the image of Akwa Ibom Teenagers Forum,” he said.
Abasiodiong Eyo Inyang, has since tendered an apology letter, in which she revealed that her intentions for taking the pictures were misunderstood and that she has been depressed ever since the dethronement.
Read letter below:
AN APOLOGY LETTER FROM MY SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.
…”In a dilemma such as which i see myself, one would be lost on who to chose between the Devil & Deep Blue Sea.
I CHOSE THE DEEP BLUE SEA”.
I, Miss Abasiodiong Eyo Inyang who until my dethronement few days ago was MISS TEENS 2017/18 deeply apologies over my negative behaviour lately.
Few days ago i added another year to my age & i thought it wise to embark on a photoshoot, I decided to post my “Half Nude” pictures taken with the clearest of intentions. Not knowing I would be misunderstood!
And so, I apologize to organisers of the “Miss Teens Pageant” whose crown I bore…
To teenagers across boards who are victims because of how they dress…
To Akwa Ibomites who I let down…
To parents, family, School & friends…
Please, from the deepest recesses of my heart, i plead for FORGIVENESS.
The past few days have been hell for me, so depressed & so hard on me regarding the fact i was a serving queen & shouldn’t indulge on negative trends. It hurts & sincerely, I have never felt this way in my entire life, and I just can not control it.
I never meant to bring disrespect to the world of Pagentry or modelling professions, my intention was not to belittled the crown or insult fellow queens. No… Far from it.
1.) Not being asked WHY but being judged by ALL without an opportunity for fair hearing.
2.) Not being allowed to face a panel on my suitability to continue as a TEEN AMBASSADOR before being banished.
3.) Not being asked the motive behind my actions.
4.) Not given a chance/opportunity to atone & plead for forgiveness.
5.) Being chastised, condemned & treated as an infidel over a mistake i should have been corrected with kid gloves.
I am sorry for what I did yesterday, I am sorry for what I did today and what I’ll do tomorrow. I know I could apologize for days on end but it may not eliminate your thoughts on me but i take solace on God Almighty & on his grace i continually seek strength to endure the pain i currently face.
Knowing my actions upset many tremendously,
PLEASE I AM DEEPLY SORRY.
My fault, I AM HUMAN & NOT A SAINT WITHOUT BLAME.
Help me if you will “Not to drown in this
DEEP BLUE SEA”.
We Teens must grow, and Thrive, for a better tomorrow.
As a child raised from a christian home, i seek for forgiveness from all who i must have offended, i am not entirely perfect so let me not be crucified over an ignorance i now regret.
It is my fervent supplications to God that my apology over this sad episode of my life be ACCEPTED by all who i offended by this ugly incidence.
Once again, I AM DEEPLY SORRY, PLEASE ACCEPT ME BACK AS I AM.
God bless you all.
Miss Abasiodiong Eyo Inyang
