At a very colourful ceremony which brought together several chiefs, elders and people of the East Akyem District, Tigo’s CEO, Roshi Motman, was made Queen mother of development of the Tafo Akyem area and will go by the stool name, Obaapayin Nana Yaa Adusei.
Osabarima Adusei Peasah IV, the Chief of Akyem Tafo recounted the very many initiatives Tigo has executed in the East Akyem District of the Eastern region under Roshi’s leadership, key of which is the renovation of the maternity unit of the Tafo Government hospital. The unit caters to women from over 22 communities and records 100 new births each month. Not only has the improved state of the unit reduced maternal and infant mortality rate, it has brought some dignity to the experience of childbirth for women in the district.
Osabarima Adusei added, “the East Akyem District has benefitted greatly from Tigo’s good business initiatives under its Corporate Social Responsibility strategy and we look forward to forging stronger partnerships.”
Obaapayin Yaa Adusei remarked, “my team and I have a simple task – to work smart, let our work speak for itself and spread love in the communities we operate and today, with this honour done me, you have validated our efforts.”
