Mobile Telecommunication Network (MTN) Ghana has presented the Oguaa Traditional Council with a cheque for GH¢10,000 in support of the 2018 Oguaa Fetu Afahye celebration
The traditional council was also presented with MTN recharge cards worth GH¢1,000, hampers containing drinks worth GH¢1,500 and other souvenirs.
Making the donation in Cape Coast last Wednesday, August 22, 2018, the Regional Senior Manager of MTN Ghana South West Business District, Mr Simon Amoh, said it was to reciprocate the council’s support to the success of the company.
He said the chiefs were an integral part of the system in which the company operated, so there was the need to support them.
“The chiefs are an integral part of the system in which we operate; they give us land and support our decisions, therefore we must also support them when the need arises,” he said.
Mr Amoh said the festival was a means for the inhabitants of Cape Coast to be economically empowered, to enable them to have the means to patronise the services of the company.
