The Asantehene, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II, has lauded Vodafone Ghana for its unwavering commitment and substantial contributions towards the progress of the Ashanti Region.
Otumfuor Osei Tutu II highlighted Vodafone Ghana's steadfast support for the Asantehene Open Golf Championship, even amidst challenging economic times. He also recognised the company's crucial initiatives that have significantly impacted the region, particularly in the realms of education and healthcare.
This commendation was made during a visit by Vodafone Ghana’s senior management team, led by CEO Patricia Obo-Nai, to the Manhyia Palace. The visit was aimed at communicating Vodafone Ghana’s continued sponsorship of the Asantehene Open Golf Tournament, a commitment they have upheld for seven successive years since 2017. She also announced the celebration of the 2023 Vodafone Ashanti Month, which is an annual celebration.
Otumfuor Osei Tutu II expressed his gratitude to Vodafone for spearheading sustainable development initiatives in the Ashanti region through job creation, building digital economy as well as enhancing the health and education sectors. He encouraged Vodafone to continue its commendable efforts.
In response, Patricia Obo-Nai thanked Otumfuor and reaffirmed Vodafone Ghana’s dedication to Asanteman. She emphasised that their support for the golf tournament and other initiatives are geared towards fortifying Vodafone’s relationship with Otumfuor Osei Tutu II and the people of Asanteman, while also fostering sustainable development in the region.
“As part of our Ashanti Month celebrations, we aim to give back to our customers and the community. So, we urge individuals and businesses to leverage all the opportunities we offer during Ashanti Month and beyond," she said.
The month-long celebration will include the launch of an ICT hub in the Ashanti Regional Library, a collaborative effort with the Ghana Library Authority.
Moreover, Vodafone Ghana will revive several initiatives aimed at enhancing long-term health and sustainability outcomes. These include Healthfest, a free health screening initiative; Homecoming, an initiative to settle bills for insolvent hospital patients; and free ultrasound for pregnant women in Pipie in the Bosomtwe district.
