The Chief Marketing Officer of MTN, Asher Yaqub Khan, expressed happiness that the telecommunication giants had been at the forefront  of organising some important golf competitions in the country including the Asantehene Gold Cup and CEO’s invitational tournament.

He said MTN cherished the relationship it had established with its customers over the years and was hopeful that through the golf competition, they would continue to strengthen that relationship.
