Checkpoint to supply MTN scratch cards
Accra, Sept. 4, Ghanadot/GNA - As part of its
commitment to the development of the nation and local
organizations, Mobile Telecommunication Network, (MTN)
Ghana, has contracted Checkpoint Ghana Limited, a security
printing and business forms manufacturing company, to print
the company's scratch cards.
"We believe successes in emerging economies are built on
relationships with local companies and nourished by long
term actions and this we have displayed with Checkpoint,"
said Mr Leo Skalartos, Chief Financial Officer of MTN Ghana.
MTN settled on Checkpoint Limited after a competitive
bidding. As part of the deal the company would print the
scratch cards on a high quality “Entatag” paper which is the
corporate security paper of MTN.
Speaking at the signing on Thursday, Mr. Skarlatos expressed
delight at the deal since Checkpoint was a company of high
repute in the West Africa sub-region.
He noted that MTN was the biggest taxpayer in the country
and also had one of the highest employers in the country
since “it employs thousands formally and over 60,000 vendors
and dealers informally”.
"One only needs to consider the popularity of the MTN to MTN
stands dotted across the country to appreciate our
contribution to employment generation," he added.
Mr Isaac Boateng, General Manager of Checkpoint Ghana
Limited, expressed his appreciation to MTN Ghana for the
confidence reposed in his company.
