Millicom Ghana Limited, operators of Tigo, a mobile telecommunications network, on Friday presented a 52-seater Mercedes Benz Bus to Kumasi Asante Kotoko Football Club at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
 
The $200,000 air-conditioned bus with sleeping and toilet facilities was in fulfilment of a promise made to the Club in May, last year.

Nana Ampratwum, the Brand Manager, in a speech at the presentation ceremony, re-affirmed Tigo’s commitment to support Kotoko and the development of sports in the country.
 
He acknowledged Kotoko’s remarkable achievements through team work, zeal and enthusiasm and said the Company was proud to be associated with the exploits of the Club.
     
The Porcupine Warriors placed second in the just ended Glo Premier League.
     
Nana Ampratwum said the presentation was the beginning of more of good things to come between the two.
     
Management, old and current players, Chiefs and fans of Kotoko thronged the Palace, the seat of the Asantehene to catch a glimpse of the ultra-modern bus.
     
Madam Helina Cobbina, a member of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Club, appointed by the Asantehene to run Kotoko said they were grateful to the Company for its support over the years.
     
Through Tigo’s sponsorship deals, Kotoko had won four trophies.
     
She said the presentation of the bus would now make it easier for the management and players to travel in comfort to honour matches.
     
Oheneba Adusei Poku, the Akyempimhene who stood in for Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene and Life Patron of Kotoko, paid glowing tribute to the old players, administrators and supporters of the Club and asked the present crop of players to continue to fly the flag of the club high.
     
He appealed to the fans of Kotoko to patronize products of Tigo and also participate actively in the Club’s programmes and activities.
     
The Akyempimhene expressed worry about what he said was the tendency by some people to make false allegations and accusation against the Club.
     
The Bantamahene, Nana Owusu Amankwatia IV received the keys to the bus.

  5. Congratulations and thank you for your philanthropy — love of people. I appreciate your support of sports and want to encourage your support of the children of Ghana. I had the privilege of having lunch at the Manhyia Palace with Otumfuo Osi Tutu II – Asantehene on his 10th anniversary as king, and Archbishop Emeritus Peter K. Sarpong on his 50th anniversary as priest, on December 23, 2009 while visiting that country for six weeks.

    We the Loretto Community are partnering with a Ghanian community of Sisters, FST, in building a school in the village of Akokoamong, outside Kumasi. We are in need of a 35 seater bus to transport children from surrounding villages to our school that opened its doors in Sept. 2009. It is our firm belief that education is the answer for this fast developing country with 37% of the population being children under the age of 14. Won’t you help us make a dream of a quality education come true for these Ghanian children who are eager to learn.

    Sincerely,
    Lydia M. Peña, SL
