Mobile Telecommunication Network (MTN) Ghana, as part of its corporate social responsibility, on Wednesday presented a cheque of GH¢5,000 to support this year’s Akyem Tafo Ohum Festival in the Abuakwa North Municipality.
The donation also includes MTN souvenirs, recharge cards worth GH¢500, and a hamper worth GH¢1,000.
Presenting the items at the Akyem Tafo Palace, Prince Owusu Nyarko, Acting Commercial Manager, acknowledged the importance of festivals in the country, hence, the decision to support the celebration of Ohum.
“MTN, as a telecommunication network, supports about 22 festivals in Ghana, with Ohum being part,” he indicated.
Mr. Owusu Nyarko, in an interview after the donation, cautioned mobile money users to be watchful of fraud, advising “no one should make public their mobile money pin, and for that matter, if you have not initiated any transaction and you are prompted to approve any message, it is better to decline any message sent you.”
He entreated the gathering to visit MTN offices in times of difficulties, or call the call center number (100) for any assistance and explanations of their services.
The Chief of Akyem Tafo, Osabarima Adusei Peasah IV, receiving the donation, expressed gratitude to the leading mobile telecommunications network in Ghana for supporting the celebration of the festival over the years.
He stated: “This is not the first time you are donating to us, but the 2018 edition has been exceptional. We have embraced your donation, and we promise to be with you always.”
