Ralph Mupita, Group CEO-MTN, has reiterated his company’s commitment to supporting government’s development initiatives and reaffirmed Ghana as a key market for the MTN Group.
According to him, Ghana remains a key market for the MTN Group and they are keen on demonstrating their commitment to progress of the country through meaningful partnerships with relevant stakeholders.
The MTN Group CEO made this statement of assurance when he paid a one-day working visit to Ghana last Friday. He was accompanied by the Chairman of MTN Group, Mcebisi Jonas; Chika Ekeji, Group Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer; and Nompilo Morafo, Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Affairs Officer.
The visit’s purpose was to reaffirm MTN’s commitment to the socio-economic development of Ghana and strengthen relationships with key stakeholders.
Ralph Mupita and the team from MTN Group, together with the MTN Ghana team led by CEO Selorm Adadevoh, began the day by meeting with the South African High Commissioner to Ghana, H.E. Grace Janet Mason. They continued with their engagements at the Bank of Ghana, the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation, and Ministry of Finance – ending the day by meeting with members of the MTN Ghana Board of Directors.
Key areas of discussions were updates on key strategic projects, including Localisation and other ICT development initiatives: such as the Girls in ICT project (to which MTN has committed GH¢10million spread over 3 years), the ICT Hub Project (which is in early stages) and discussions on a project that seeks to position Ghana as the centre of ICT for the continent.
Ralph Mupita had a separate engagement with a select number of journalists in Accra to share his views on current technological developments in Africa, and MTN’s strategy and commitment to the Ghana market.
He expressed the company’s commitment to investing in the network, saying the Ghana business’ performance over the years is a result of sustained investment in the business.
The Group CEO also had the opportunity to share insights on MTN’s outlook toward its strategic vision, Ambition 2025.
The visit to Ghana is the Group CEO’s fourth since he assumed that office and the Group Presidency in 2020. The stakeholder engagements are part of his commitment to fostering cordial working relationships and to better understand areas of collaboration between MTN, the private sector and governments in the markets where MTN operates.
