Accra, Oct. 8, GNA – MTN Ghana has organized a day’s stakeholders’ engagement forum with journalists within the Tamale Metropolis to share an overview of the company’s business performance in the Region.
The day’s forum was to create a platform for information sharing, giving an overview of the company’s business performance of the previous year, how MTN intends to enhance its services as well as the improved customer services available to make MTN the preferred network provider.
Mr Sam Koranteng, Corporate Services Executive of MTN Ghana claimed that the company had become the most preferred network provider among the Ghanaian society as a result of the improved range of the quality services provided to meet customer demands.
He said MTN had partnered the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communication (GIFEC) to provide mobile telephony services for the underserved and un-served communities in Ghana to enjoy the full benefits of mobile telephony services and digital technology.
Mr Koranteng said MTN Ghana was contributing its quota to the development of the country and had generated a total of GHC1.059 billion directly to the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) through taxation to improve the country’s economic growth.
He said as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility, MTN has awarded 100 scholarships to brilliant but needy students in tertiary institutions within the country.
He said the scholarships cover students’ accommodation; tuition fees as well as GHC500 to enable them buy books and other learning materials in every semester to provide the less privileged access to education.
Mr Nii Adotey Mingle, MTN General Manager, Northern Sector, said as part of the upgrade of the company’s technology, MTN Ghana has digitized the economy to improve the business’ performance in the Region with regard to the payment of services.
He added that MTN Ghana has played significant effort in the area of health, education, as well as economic empowerment as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Mr Mingle urged the general public to be wary of fraudsters who would ask them to send them their Mobile Money Pin Code, saying « MTN would never ask anyone for those information and that MTN would call customers with 0244300000 ».
