The premises of MTN HQ in Golden Plaza, Ikoyi was filled with thrills and excitement as MTN Brand Ambassadors Banky W, HarrySongz were present to excite MTNers at the opening ceremony of the 10th anniversary of 21 days of Y’ello care. The ceremony also featured performances by MUSON Scholars and Kings Squad dance group.
The yearly programme initiated by the MTN Group in 2007 encourages MTN staff in all its 21 operations in Africa, Asia and the Middle East to volunteer their resources, time and skills to assist others and the communities they live and work in.
For 21 days in June 2016, staff of MTN Nigeria will engage in a number of activities focusing on inculcating the reading culture in the Nigerian child. This initiative has adopted the theme, “Investing in Education for All,” which is in consonance with the global movement to make education accessible and compulsory for all across the world.
During the opening Speech by the Human Resources and Corporate Services Executive Amina Oyagbola, urged all MTNers to lead the charge by participating passionately and sharing all their volunteering memories on Social Media.
Still in the groove of the event, two members of staff participated in a heated dance battle which got all attendees on their feet and drove some of the executives of MTN Nigeria to reward the competitors with cash prizes.
The event also rewarded MTNers with a draw for the 2016 Y’ello Care Staff Competition where Olawunmi Erinosho took away the Grand Prize of a Mitsubishi Lancer Car while other winners took home consolation Prizes like ipad Mini, Apple Watch and others.
