Presenting the items to, Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council, the Manager of Southeast Business District of MTN Ghana, Kwasi Osei Hyeaman said as a company they believe that festivals project a lot about African society and are considered an integral part of the development of the communities.
“As part of its longstanding relationship with the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council, MTN has set up customer experience centres in James Town to address the needs of clients from today to Sunday, August 20.
While providing a distinct customer experience during the Homowo Festival celebration all weekend, customers will be assisted to reconnect their SIM with the Ghana Card, they will be educated on Mobile Money fraud, and encouraged to use the ‘My MTN App’, the ‘MTN MoMo App, and the ‘Ayoba’ App,” he stated.
This objective is at the core of our business at MTN; connecting families, friends, and businesses through the services we provide.
The commercial activities tied to these celebrations improve the economic conditions of the celebrating communities; this is why MTN Ghana continues to lend its support to over 40 festivals across the country.
“We are happy to be connected to the festival because aside from hooting at hunger, the Homowo celebration is used to foster togetherness, connect people, and bring about development.
MTN Ghana on Wednesday, August 16, also supported the La Traditional Council with a cash amount of GHS10,000, credit worth GHS1,000, and a hamper of drinks for the celebration of the Homowo Festival,” he disclosed.
He said through this festival MTN will be able to strengthen its relationship with their customers also and help resolve some of the customer issues that may need attention.
However, he also seized the opportunity to educate the public on MoMo fraud; advising the customers to guard their Mobile Money (MoMo) pin at all times by ensuring that it is not given to anybody.
