The overall best MoMo Agent for the Business District, Big Joe Ventures (Kasoa) took home GH¢50,000 electronic cash plus a motorbike. Top performing vendors also received awards including Motorbikes, Smart TVs, Laptops, CCTV cameras, among others.
Shaibu Haruna, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Mobile Money Limited (MML), mentioned that with support from 250,000 agent points across all sixteen regions of the country, numerous customers nationwide can make transactions wherever and whenever they deem it necessary.
“Our over-200,000 merchants who accept MoMo for payments for goods and services have continued to support us in our commitment to driving a cash-lite economy,” he said.
Currently, he said, MoMo subscribers stand at 11.3 million due to the tireless efforts of mobile agents who travel the length and breadth of the country growing the subscriber base.
“It is in recognition of your critical contributions that we are here today to honour and thank you for all you do. It has been a challenging year with introduction of the E-levy; the challenges our customers have had with accessing their MoMo wallets during the SIM-barring exercise; and also the challenging economic environment we find ourselves in. But our resilience as a people has enabled us to soldier-on, and today we are here to celebrate our achievements and strategise for next year,” Mr. Haruna added.
He urged them to continue supporting MTN in educating customers and recording zero fraud cases in their operations.
“I am counting on your unwavering support to continue building on the successes and strides we have made in the coming years to make MTN MoMo the most preferred digital payment platform in Ghana,” he added.
