Mr. Prince Sefah calls on CEO of Vodafone Ghana
In a step towards accelerating Digital Inclusion in Ghana, the Administrator (CEO) of Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC), Mr. Prince Ofosu Sefah, recently paid a Courtesy Call on the Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Ghana, Patricia Obo-Nai.
The meeting, held at the Headquarters of Vodafone Ghana, aimed to explore ways to enhance collaboration between the two organisations towards bridging the digital divide.
In his opening remarks, Mr. Sefah acknowledged Vodafone’s role as a key stakeholder to GIFEC’s operations, and the need to enhance the relationship between the two organisations, especially in relation to providing meaningful connectivity to Underserved and Unserved communities in Ghana. He expressed the need to find innovative solutions to resolve issues related to GIFEC’s Ghana Rural Telephony and Digital Inclusion Project (GRT&DIP) which aims at connecting 2,016 Unserved and Underserved communities across the country.
Again, on the GRT&DIP, Mr. Sefah articulated his appreciation for Vodafone Ghana’s commitment to the project, adding that out of 1,008 Built Sites, 479 are activated and on Air, due to Vodafone’s willingness to avail Donor Sites for Network Integration. He called on Vodafone to continue to support the project, which is of great national importance, and is beneficial to the Telecom Sector.
Mrs. Obo-Nai, on behalf of Vodafone, welcomed the Administrator and Team, and expressed her appreciation for the visit, acknowledging the healthy relationship with GIFEC. She added that Vodafone welcomes opportunities to collaborate more with GIFEC in various areas, including infrastructure-sharing for network expansion, and initiatives aimed at empowering the digitally-excluded.
