Speaking at the ceremony, Major Albert Don Chebe, Head of Corporate Communication, Vodafone Ghana Ltd., said the introduction of the product is part of Vodafone’s commitment to extend communication to many communities in the country.
According to him, even though Vodafone has been in the country for barely four months, the company was making efforts to improve the country’s communications and enhance quality, as well as extend coverage to as many communities as possible.
