“The pursuit of any development programme or initiative without information and communication technology will almost invariably become an impossible assignment”, Mr. Frederick Adetola, Chief Operations Officer of rLG Communications has noted. He made this statement at the Brong-Ahafo Regional launch of the ICT Module by the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) and Introduction of the rLG phones that are assembled in Ghana by rLG Communication in Sunyani. According to Mr. Adetola, with over 12 million Ghanaians using mobile phones in Ghana, it definitely means a huge opportunity for government, development partners and the private sector to fight poverty and hunger, which will lead to wealth creation. He described the NYEP ICT module as very essential component in the government's national employment drive, which the rLG is the implementing agency. Mr. Adetola disclosed that rLG has for some time now enjoyed an effective partnership with the NYEP in the fight against poverty and hunger leading to wealth creation through self-employment. The Operations Officer of rLG said the company is committed to equipping the teeming youth of the country, not only with technological skills but also entrepreneurial expertise and the right attitude for profitable self-employment and financial freedom. He said the NYEP/rLG partnership is extremely instrumental in giving meaning to the dreams of providing Ghana and the world with quality rLG mobile phones which are proudly assembled in Ghana, whilst customers who will make the dream to make Ghana the gate way not only in Africa but to the entire world a reality. Mr. Adetola assures that rLG Communications would continue to set the pace, break the records and secure a place in the history books, with the next logical milestone being to build an ultra modern and state of the art assembling plant in Ghana. According to him, the edifice would generate more jobs and absorb over 20,000 beneficiary youth from the partnership with the NYEP on permanent basis. He called on the telecommunication network operators in the country to patronize the rLG phones to enhance activation on their networks, this according to Mr. Adtola is because the brand has already enjoyed high profile endorsement and patronage in Asia and some African countries.
