Ghana’s leading telecom operator, MTN Ghana as part of its commitment towards the promotion of the rich Ghanaian culture and tradition, have presented cheque for GH¢ 5,000.00 to the Asogli State in support of this year’s Asogli Yam Festival.
It also donated airtime worth a GH¢1,000.00, a GH¢500.00 worth of drink hamper and some assorted MTN souvenirs.
Mr David Woasey, regional Sales and distribution Manager of MTN who presented the items, said the donation was to consolidate the long standing relationship between the company and the Asogli state.
‘MTN as a friend of the Asogli state have come to affirm our relationship and lend our continuous support to the people as you celebrate the Asogli Yam festival’ he said and promised that his outfit would support an entertainment show in Ho dubbed “MTN Chill Zone” during the festival.
Mr Woasey said the theme for this year’s festival-“Let’s make our nation great and strong,” was appropriate because it called for selflessness and patriotism.
