In his address, Mr Nyarko reiterated the company’s commitment to supporting local traditions and cultural festivals by partnering with traditional councils to ensure successful celebrations. He also stated that all MTN products and services would be made available to the people during the festival.

Furthermore, Mr Nyarko mentioned that the MTN Foundation, which is focused on supporting development in its catchment areas, has extended its activities to a number of communities, organizations, and health institutions. The foundation has also provided scholarships to needy but brilliant students in the Central Region.

Neenyi Ghartey VII expressed his gratitude to MTN for the support and called for more assistance in subsequent celebrations. He also commended the company for its efforts in supporting local communities through the MTN Foundation.

For the most part, the Aboakyer Festival is celebrated annually by the people of Winneba in the Central Region to mark the migration of their forefathers to their present location. The festival is a symbol of unity and strength, and it involves the hunting of a live deer by two groups of young men representing the two divisions of the town. The first group to bring a live deer to the chief’s palace wins the competition.

In conclusion, MTN Ghana’s donation to the Effutu Traditional Council for the Aboakyer Festival is a testament to the company’s commitment to supporting local communities and promoting their cultural heritage. The company has shown that it is not only interested in providing quality telecommunication services but also in contributing to the development and growth of the country.
