Dr. Bawumia emphasized the importance of telecommunications in today’s economy.

“Telecommunication plays a pivotal role in shaping our modern society. It bridges distances, connects people, and empowers communities. In today’s fast-paced world, access to reliable and efficient communication is not just a luxury but a necessity for socioeconomic development. It is also critical to Ghana’s digitization agenda, and I am particularly pleased that Telecel Group has decided to invest in Ghana”, the Vice President said.

“I believe it is testament to the conducive business environment created by deliberate and intentional policies by the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo government.” Veep added.

The final event was held at the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange amid exciting performances and solidarity messages from key stakeholders such as the Member of Parliament of Ayawaso West Wuogon, Hon. Lydia Seyram Alhassan.

Telecel’s vision is to lead Africa’s digital revolution, connecting communities with sustainable and locally developed innovative connectivity methods, and inspiring technological advancements that pave the way for a thriving, interconnected continent.

In Ghana, Telecel is focusing on significantly expanding its network coverage, aiming for 2500 4G sites within three years and targeting 100% satellite-to-mobile connectivity to ensure nationwide access across Ghana.
