He noted that this year has been an exciting year for the MTN Invitational Golf Tournament, and the recent one at Bogoso is a testimony.
“As a leader in the telecommunications sector, we continue to work towards achieving our vision “to lead the delivery of a bold new digital world to our customers”. To bring this to your doorsteps, MTN Ghana launched the TurboNet, a super-fast 4G internet router that brings unparalleled internet speeds to businesses and individual homes. The Turbonet, without doubt, is transforming the way we do business, engage with things and interact with people in our daily lives. We refer to it as the ‘Revolution’ in the digital space when it comes to high- speed home broadband. We encourage you to get one for yourself and possibly for a friend” he said.
According to Dr. Yamson, MTN continues to attain milestones in their operations as a business, as they organized the biggest AGM in the history of the Ghana Stock Exchange exactly a month ago today.
“I believe those of you who are shareholders have received your dividends for the period. We continue to work to ensure that our shareholders have value for their investments. Also a few days ago we launched the 10th-anniversary celebrations of what has become the household name for mobile financial transactions in Ghana- MTN Mobile Money. In 2009, MTN became the trailblazer in the Mobile Financial Sector, by making the mobile phone a tool to be used to undertake financial transactions. 10 years down the line, our contributions to driving financial inclusion is evident. We can count 14 million subscribers, 124,000 merchants, 5000 agents in the value chain of MTN MoMo. Our quest to see a cash-lite society is still on and we believe as stakeholders of MTN, you will support our drive to ensure that all your payments and other financial transactions are done via MTN MoMo” he expressed.
He reckoned that the participation in the tournament is huge. “Consistently we see growth or increase in the number of participants over the past decade. I would like to congratulate the winners of today’s event, the organizers and every participant for your spectacular performance on the golf course” he added. He thanked the golfers for coming in their numbers,
