MTN-Ghana recently collaborated with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) students to impart entrepreneurial skills through digital platforms at the 17th edition of the Success Africa Summit held on the university’s campus in Kumasi.
Organized by the LEC Group, a hub focused on youth education through conferences and training, the summit aimed to inspire and foster greatness among young individuals by providing opportunities to connect with CEOs and accomplished personalities.
Since its inception in 2008, the summit has toured various university campuses across Ghana and parts of Africa, preparing students for the job market post-graduation.
A scene from the Summit
As the main sponsors for the 2024 Summit, MTN Ghana officials engaged with over 1000 participants, highlighting the benefits of their digital products and services. Mr. Samuel Andoh, the Territory Sales Controller for MTN Ghana, emphasized the convenience of innovative products such as My MTN, MoMo, and Ayoba Apps, urging students to leverage these platforms for their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Mr. Andoh emphasized the accessibility of these resources through smartphones and promoted the safety of transactions through the MoMo app. He also highlighted Ayoba App’s feature allowing users to chat, watch videos, and receive updates for free, even without data.
Addressing concerns about MoMo fraud, Mr. Andoh cautioned students against entertaining calls from sources other than the official MTN contact number, 0243300000.
Mr. Albert Prempeh Kusi, Executive Director of LEC Group, reiterated the commitment to youth mentorship, underscoring the belief in the potential of Africa’s youth. He noted that participants would benefit from tools, knowledge, and information to enhance their lives.
Mr. Kusi revealed that over 250,000 students have already been impacted by the summit since its inception and announced plans to visit approximately 15 universities this year, further expanding the reach of the program and its positive impact on young people’s lives.Source:Samuel Asante
