KUFOUR IS BILLY THE KID


Kuffor`s a he GOAT.

Vodafone Group Plc says it welcomes the Government of Ghana’s position to re-engage the company rather than abrogate or renegotiate the agreement that offloaded 70 per cent of government shares to it.

A statement released by the company Thursday said Vodafone, since taking control of the company, has already invested GH¢600 million in strengthening the company and improving the quality of its services and welcomes the Government of Ghana’s position and is pleased to re-engage with the Government to secure the long term future of Vodafone GT.

“Vodafone GT is a partnership between Vodafone and the Government. The Government’s public commitment to Vodafone GT allows the company to move forward and focus on its goal of providing world-class services to Ghanaians.

“Vodafone looks forward to a constructive re-engagement with the Government to find ways that Vodafone can support Ghana’s goals even more in future. Vodafone is pleased to note the Government’s statement that it will not abrogate or renegotiate the agreement,” the statement said.

And beyond the GH¢600 million investment the company says it has made, the statement said “Vodafone is committed to further investment in the company and its operations, including expanding and upgrading the National Communications Backbone Company.

“Vodafone has already extended the fibre network and plans to invest further to complete the northern ring,” the statement affirmed and pledged the company’s commitment to uphold the highest standards of corporate behaviour in all its dealings.
