In an interaction with the media after the meeting with the Asantehene, Mr Adadevor commended the people of Asanteman for being loyal customers of MTN.

He said the region remained one of the company’s strategic business locations in the country.

‘’It is a great pleasure having the opportunity to visit the Manhyia Palace and to pay homage to the Asantehene whose leadership has ensured his people patronize our products and services’’, Adadevor stressed.

Mr Adadevor cautioned the public against responding to text messages that they received from unscrupulous people requesting them to call a number to redeem their prizes.

Any number apart from the aforementioned that is used to call any MTN customer for either a prize or award is fraudulent, the new CEO stated.

"MTN would only send messages or texts through the 0244-300-000 number and it is good to caution the public not to respond to any other text or message from any number apart from this famous code of the company," Mr Adadevor said.
