Management of Ghana’s leading telecommunications service provider, MTN Ghana, on Tuesday presented a cheque for GH¢5,000.00 to the Oguaa Traditional Council towards the celebration of this year’s Fetu Afahye.
In addition, the company donated recharge cards worth GH¢1,000.00, MTN souvenirs, drinks, and it would also support the organisation of the durbar of chiefs and people as well as an entertainment show dubbed “Test Your Pulse Jam”.
Mr. Simon Amoh, Regional Senior Manager for the South-West Business District of MTN who presented the items, said the festival had coincided with the company’s 20 years of operation in the country, and the gesture was to express gratitude to the people of Cape Coast for their support for MTN.
Touching on education, which is the focus on this year’s festival, he said MTN had partnered several institutions on many projects in the region, assuring that the company would continue to partner the chiefs towards the development of education in the area.
Mr. Simon Amoh said the company through the MTN Ghana Foundation, had improved access to health and education as well, investing more than GH¢22.2 million in 135 projects in the area.
He said MTN was committed to its vision to lead the delivery of a bold new digital world to its customers and “will continue to support sustainable development as we strive to brighten the lives of the people in the communities in which we operate”.
The President of the Oguaa Traditional Council and Paramount Chief of the Area, Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, expressed gratitude to the company for its support towards the celebration of the festival.
This year’s celebration, which is on the theme, “The falling standards of education in the Cape Coast Metropolis; the Stakeholders’ responsibilities” starts on Saturday, August 27, and would be climaxed on Saturday, September 5.
