MTN Ghana donates to Osagyefo Amoatia’s educational fund

MTN Ghana has donated an amount of GH¢20,000.00 to the Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin educational fund.

The donation is to support the good works of the Okyenhene in enhancing the education of brilliant but needy students across the country.

The occasion was also used to introduce MTN’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Selorm Adadevoh to the chief and renew the relationship and partnership between the two entities.

Mr Adadevoh told the Ghana News Agency in an interview that being introduced to the Osagyefo was MTN’s tradition of reassuring the Okyenhene of their commitment towards the fund.

He said MTN would continue supporting and promoting the enhancement and introduction of new technologies to offer the best of service and products for consumers.

The Osagyefo said MTN had been supportive of his town whenever they call on them and urged MTN to improve on the quality of their network in the remote areas.

Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin encouraged operators of the network to create opportunities for Ghanaians to lead the company in the country, saying that, “we must be owners of our airwaves. It seems all networks do not have indigenous owners and that bothers me”.

The Okyenhene said he would be celebrating his 20th anniversary on the throne in October 2019 and appealed to the network to support the occasion.

Mr Samuel Koranteng, Corporate Services Executive of MTN Ghana, responding to the requests by the king explained that MTN Ghana gave Ghanaians the privilege to own 35 per cent of the network a few months ago.

He disclosed that on September 5, they would list MTN on the Ghana Stock Exchange.

MTN Ghana Foundation, he said, saw the need to support the Fund because of the importance of education to the country.

“Osagyefo’s educational fund is a well-established one and we have confidence in it and we know that the fund is administered towards supporting education within his territory and others outside who qualify for assistance”, he

said.
