Quicktel Limited, from Buipe in the Savannah region emerged the overall winner at this year’s MTN Northern sector MoMo Awards, driving home a brand new 4×4 Toyota Rush.
Haruna Muhammed who picked up the award was full of gratitude to MTN and his customers for the recognition.
Over two hundred and fifty (250) other MTN Mobile Money (MoMo) Merchants, Agents and Mobile Agents won various categories of awards leaving the venue with certificates, phones, tablets, laptops, Television sets, motorbikes and cash prizes.
MTN Ghana holds this awards annually around the country to award hardworking partners for their contributions to the success of the brand.
Managing Director of Mobile Money Limited; a subsidiary of MTN Ghana, Mr. Eli Hini expressed profound gratitude to the awardees and all who through their activities promote the growth of the MTN brand and MoMo. He explained that the merchants and agents showed great resilience and worked hard during the period of the lockdown to avert a downward spiral of MoMo and the country’s banking system.
He called on all to guard against fraudsters explaining that every good system is only as good as its weakest link. “Clients should avoid disclosing their PINs no matter what as MTN will not call you and demand your PIN under any circumstance. They should also strive to do their own transactions instead of making others do their transactions on their behalf” he appealed and explained that MoMo fraud will soon be a thing of the past with such vigilance.
He assured that his outfit will continue to do all that is possible to protect MoMo users.
The colourful ceremony, held at the Golden Tulip Kumasi city was exciting with Ghanaian musician Kelvyn Boy thrilling the gathering with some of his hit tunes and MC Mikki Osei Berko exciting participants with lively jokes and comments.
