The Council also received recharge cards worth GH1, 000.00, drinks, hampers and assorted MTN souvenirs.

The MTN would also sponsor the Afahye football gala, an entertainment show dubbed: “Test your Pulse” and the grand durbar which comes off on Saturday, September 3.

Mr Simon Amoh, the Business Manager of the South-Western Business District of MTN, who made the presentation at the Emintsimadze Palace on Tuesday, said this year’s Afahye would coincide with the 20th anniversary of the existence of MTN in Ghana.

He said the gesture was to express the company’s gratitude to the people of Oguaa whose constant support of its business had contributed significantly to MTN retaining its leadership position in the telecoms industry in the country.

He gave the assurance that it would continue to deepen its relationship with the people of Oguaa for their mutual benefit.

MTN has patterned with several institutions in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment to complement the efforts of the traditional authorities and the Government to improve the living standards of the people.

He mentioned some of the educational projects the company was undertaking in the Central Region to include the national spelling bee, essay competition, refurbishment of an Information and Communication Technology centre for the Aggrey Memorial Senior High School, the National Best Teacher Award and the MTN teacher improvement award programme.

Mr Amoh said this year’s theme: “The Falling Standards of Education in the Cape Coast Metropolis – the Stakeholder’s Responsibility,” was appropriate because training and education was embedded in culture.

He said through the MTN Foundation the company had invested in over 135 projects which were impacting the lives of more than three million Ghanaians.

Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, the Omanhene of Oguaa Traditional Area, commended the management of MTN for the gesture and promised that the council was appreciative of the company’s support over the years.

He said the donation was timely and would go a long way to boost the celebration of this year’s festival.
