The pandemic resulted in a change in plans for the year, top of that, we lost some loved ones including our very own Prof Plange Rhule, MTN Ghana Foundation Board member and an ardent golfer. We will celebrate him in a special way shortly” he said.
According to him the tournament was organised to provide us an opportunity to relax, re-strategize and share insights on business performance in our usual cordial atmosphere. I am sure we have had a therapeutic effect playing.
“Please permit me to share some insights into our business activities for the year 2020. We themed 2020 as “The Year of the Customer, The Digital Experience”. This theme is in line with our objective to become a Digital Operator by the year 2023.
“We also had to make serious interventions as a good corporate citizen to support government’s efforts at fighting the pandemic, some of these include:
Using our platforms (caller tunes, SMS etc) to create awareness and educate people on the need to adhere to the protocols, providing through the MTN Ghana Foundation GHS 5 million worth of PPE, medical supplies and other essential items for first responders across the country, zero rating well over 200 educational websites to facilitate e-learning activities of students at home, significant investment in our network to ensure adequate resilience and optimum performance to support Work from Home plans by organisations and individuals who had to use that approach to stay safe. In all the total support to fight COVID -19 for stakeholders such as customers, staff and the community was GHC100 million Cedis” he revealed.
He thanked and congratulated all players, especially the award winners. For those who do not win anything, he asked them to enjoy the lunch, interact and come back stronger and make us all proud at the next MTN CEO invitational.
He remembered to stay safe even as we get closer to the elections.
“Wear your mask everywhere you go. At MTN we say, Be W.I.S.E meaning- “Wear It Safely Everywhere You Go” “We Are good together” he added.
