MTN Northern Sector Area Sales Manager Mr, Obed Adu Amankwa who led the team told the media that the presentation was in line with the festive season which encourages giving to the needy in society.
Mr Obed explained that it was proper as a company that strives in customers satisfaction to also give back to people who make the company what it is today. “As an African company, we believe in giving and therefore an annual event has been instituted by MTN to give back to society’ Mr Amankwa said. He reiterated the company’s commitment to providing customers with innovative ideas to addressing challenges in connecting their business associates, families and friends.
He cautioned customers to be wary of fraudsters who are bent on defrauding them through the mobile money service. “Don’t expose your code, your password and don’t also entertain calls on your wallets, especially when you have not participated in any raffle.”
