CEO of Quicktel Ventures Haruna Mohammed from Buipe in the Savannah Region has won the ultimate prize for this year’s Mobile Money (MoMo) Awards.

He received a 2020 Toyota Rush 4×4 as the winning prize during a special event held in Kumasi.

A total of 270 clients of MTN made up of merchants, agents and mobile agents received various prizes including mobile phones, tablets, laptops, television sets, motorbikes, and cash.

The awards ceremony which started in 2014 seeks to reward the agents and merchants for their loyalty and commitment towards the growth of the company.

General Manager for Mobile Money Limited, a Subsidiary of MTN Ghana, Eli Hini, said the company valued the contribution of the agents and would continue to recognize their efforts as a business.

“It is extremely important to us so to show appreciation to our agents who have worked so hard and have been with us since the beginning of the business (10 years last year).”

He acknowledged the impact MoMo agents and merchants have had on the growth of the financial service delivery in Ghana, their relentless efforts especially in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“During covid-19 it was tough, some of the areas went on lockdown but they showed a lot of resilient and commitment and continued to serve customers at a point in time they were those driving the financial services sector”.

The winner, Haruna Mohammed, who was lost for words thanked MTN for the recognition which he said would spur him to work extra hard in the years ahead.

Fraud Alert
Mr. Hini also entreated them to help MTN to clamp down on unscrupulous agents involved in fraudulent activities to clean the system for sustainable growth of the business.

He said it was important for them to do honest business and earn genuine commission rather than cutting corners for undeserved profit which could lead to the termination of their contracts.

He further entreated customers of MTN never to give out their pins under any circumstance.
