The Chairman –Celebrity Golf Club,
Distinguished Ladies And Gentlemen.
It is indeed a great delight to meet and interact with you today after the last engagement at the Royal Golf Club to celebrate MTN’s 25th anniversary with the people of the Ashanti region.
We are excited to be playing at Bok Nam Kim Golf Club for the first time. My gratitude goes out to all of you for honouring our invitation to play. The MTN Invitational Golf Tournament has proven to be a worthy opportunity for networking and providing leads for business expansion. It keeps growing and we continue to see active participation. Thanks again for the time.
We started this year at Achimota, we went to Kumasi as indicated earlier and we couldn’t resist the invitation when BoK Nam Kim called on us to play here. We have the opportunity to interact with another segment of our subscriber base from the Military. We are very confident that this is the beginning of a lasting relationship between MTN and Bok Nam Kim.
Ladies and gentlemen, after hours of exercise on the golf course I wouldn’t want to take too much of your time but permit met share a few corporate highlights with you. I believe it will enable you to know us better.
