General News of Tuesday, 7 August 2012
Mobile phone and Computer Assembling and Training giant, rlg Communications Limited has handed over an amount of GHC 500,000 to the government of Ghana through the Prof. Mills Funeral Planning Committee towards the organisation of a successful funeral for President John Evans Atta Mills who died on the 24th of last month.
By the presentation, rlg becomes the very first corporate entity to donate towards the three-day funeral which climaxes with the burial of the late Law Professor on Friday, August 10.
The Chief Executive Officer of rlg, Roland Agambire who handed-over the cheque to the Funeral Committee leadership at a brief ceremony at the State House in Accra said “Just as I wrote in the Book of Condolence, Prof. Mills was a mentor and a father not only to me but to many of the country’s youth but most especially those who benefitted from his Better Ghana Agenda under which the ICT Module under the NYEP got expanded to benefit many of them. Today, about 50 of such beneficiaries have decided to forego their two month allowances to show bid our departed father farewell”.
The Funeral Committee expressed gratitude to rlg and commended it for being a socially responsible corporate organisation.
The committee hoped the leadership example shown by rlg would be emulated by the rest of corporate Ghana.
