Director of Communications for RLG, Mrs. Millicent Atuguba told Adom News the company has been in Hong Kong since its inception in 2001, in Cote d’Ivoire since June this year but the Gambian contract was signed just last Thursday.
She says the company intends to promote the Ghana-made RLG technology across Africa and the world in an effort to provide skills and jobs for the youth.
“What we are emphasizing on the continent is the RLG technology – so we are not going to those countries to teach the youth how to make Nokia and Sumsung phones but how to make RLG phones,” she said.
Mrs. Atuguba said by the close of this year RLG will also be commissioning a multi-million dollar assembling plant in Ghana to train and provide jobs for 30,000 young people across Africa.
She noted that RLG phones are doing very well on the local market because of the high patronage by Ghanaians.
“We grateful to Ghanaians for the patronage because it has put us on course to capture 80 per cent of the mobile phone market by the close of year like we promised at the beginning of this year,” she said.
RLG Communications is also handling the ICT Module of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP), under which it has extended training support to the youth of other African countries.
