The Quicktel Limited, from Buipe in the Savannah region, was adjudged the overall winner at year’s MTN Northern sector MoMo Awards, held in Kumasi.

The operators of the firm, led by Mr. Haruna Muhammed for the ultimate recognition, took home a brand new 4×4 Toyota Rush.

Meanwhile, some two hundred and fifty other MTN Mobile Money (MoMo) merchants, and agents also won various categories of awards leaving during the awards ceremony. This includes certificates, phones, tablets, laptops, television sets, motorbikes and other cash prizes.

The MTN MoMo Awards, is held annually around the country to recognize hardworking partners for their contributions to the success of the brand.

The Managing Director of Mobile Money Limited; a subsidiary of MTN Ghana, Mr. Eli Hini expressed profound gratitude to the awardees and all who through their activities promote the growth of the MTN brand and MoMo.

He said merchants and agents showed great resilience and worked hard during the period of the lockdown to avert a downward spiral of MoMo and the country’s banking system.

Mr. Hini entreated users of the platform to guard against activities of fraudsters noting that every good system is only as good as its weakest link. “Clients should avoid disclosing their PINs no matter what as MTN will not call you and demand your PIN under any circumstance.”

He said they should also strive to do their own transactions instead of making others do their transactions on their behalf while observing that MoMo fraud will soon be a thing of the past with such vigilance.

He assured that his outfit will continue to do all that is possible to protect MoMo users.

The colourful ceremony, held at the Golden Tulip Kumasi city was exciting with Ghanaian musician Kelvyn Boy thrilling the gathering with some of his hit tunes and MC Mikki Osei Berko exciting participants with lively jokes and comments.
