rLG Launches Made-In-Ghana Mobile Phones
The official launch of the G-series of rLG mobile phones came off last Saturday at the Banquet Hall of the State House amidst glitz and glamour.
It was an evening that made Ghanaians very proud, as rLG Communications, a Ghanaian owned company, introduced its G-series of mobile phones built and assembled in the country.
In an address before the launch, the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Nii Nortey Dua, commended rLG for its innovation and urged its management to keep up the good work, which was in line with the objective of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) to provide jobs for the youth.
For his part, the Chief Executive of rLG Communications, Mr Roland Agambire, expressed gratitude to all patrons of the company’s phones.
“Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is evolving very speedily and needs increasing innovation and creativity through specialised training and capacity development,” he said.
Mr Agambire said communication through a mobile telephony had become a way of life and offered an immense opportunity to empower the youth through job creation in mobile phone technology and other electronic equipment such as computers and laptops.
“We at rLG Communications are highly motivated by this trend and have effectively collaborated with the government, through the NYEP, to empower the youth through skills training and job creation aimed at tackling unemployment and creating wealth for the youth of this country,” he said.
The launch was spiced with fun and excitement as artistes such as Amakye Dede, Nana Boroo, Ruff and Smooth, 4X4, Sarkodie and R2Bees kept guests on their feet dancing the night away.
Also present was the Nigerian comedian, Basket Mouth, who gave guests a good laugh.
Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson and Nigerian actor Desmond Elliot were present to endorse the innovation.
rLG Communications, formerly Roagam Links Company Limited, is a privately owed Ghanaian company which specialises in training the youth in mobile phone servicing, repairs and assembling, as well as the sale of mobile phones.
The goal of the company is to empower the youth through job creation in applied ICT to enhance sustainable national growth and socio-economic development.
