He said in spite of the Coronavirus Pandemic that has hit the entire world they still have to get innovative ways of doing things in creating harmony and to build a strong relationship with all stakeholders and contributing to the growth of diverse religious groups in the country.
Adding that it has always been a ritual to support the Muslims during the Ramadan period and as an African company, they believe first in the African traditional religion and all forms of religions that they live and work with.
He said it was difficult to identify the religion of the company’s huge subscriber base hence it was their responsibility to celebrate with all religions to show appreciation for their loyalty to the company over the years.
He however wished all Muslims a special Ramadan and prayed for God to grant their heart desires by the time they complete the one-month fasting.
Mr. Amoh further reminded them of the need to observe all the safety protocols of the dreaded COVID-19 to help stop the spread of the virus .
