MTN Ghana, the country’s largest mobile phone company, has donated GH100,000 to the Otumfuo Education Fund as part of its 25th anniversary festivities.
Last Friday, a group of corporate officials led by Mr. SelormAdadevoh paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene, OtumfuoOsei Tutu II, at the Manhyia Palace to thank him for his great contributions and support to the company over the years.
After the donation, Mr.Adadevoh told the media that MTN shared the Asantehene’s objective of changing lives through education.
“The Asantehene has been a source of guidance and support for us. And we want to make certain that we officially notify him of our 25th anniversary celebration. We also wish to express our gratitude for all of his efforts on behalf of the Otumfuo Education Fund,” he stated.
Mr. Adadevoh emphasized that education was one of the MTN Foundation’s three pillars, and that it was critical for MTN to support Otumfuo’s effort as the firm celebrated its 25th anniversary in Ghana.
He described the gesture as the company’s tiny contribution to Otumfuo’s efforts to restore smiles to society’s downtrodden, and he expressed his excitement to be a part of Ashanti’s commitment.
Earlier this year, the business held its 2021 edition of media forum at the Golden Tulip hotel in Kumasi for certain media practitioners from the Ashanti and BrongAhafo regions, with a call on the media to support and work with the organization in order to efficiently carry out its mandate.
To improve their understanding of the company’s operations, participants were briefed on the company’s performance over the previous 25 years.
MTN Ghana, according to Mr. Adadevoh, did not go this far because of its own strength, but because of the backing of its customers, media partners, friends, and relatives.
According to him, his business’s future looks bright, especially since a new plan named “The Ambition 2025 Strategy” was announced in January this year to propel the company to greater heights.
Mr. Adadevoh explained that in the past, the company concentrated on how to directly influence Ghanaians’ lives by providing educational infrastructure, support for SMEs, and health facilities, as well as bringing items and services to their doorsteps through its channels.
He revealed that MTN Ghana plans to grow its footprint and engagement in the next five years around five primary pillars, with their (MTN Ghana) company focusing more on ecosystem participation.
The CEO stated that they would continue to support the digitisation agenda because it would benefit not only MTN, but also the telecommunications industry and the economy as a whole.
Mr. Kingsley Hope, Ashanti Regional Chairman of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) and Ashanti regional editor of ‘The Ghanaian Times,’ praised the massive telecommunications network for its unwavering support for the media.
