Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, has commended MTN for its contribution towards the development of indigenous culture across the country. Obi spoke at this year's Ofala Nnewi Festival held recently at the Palace of Igwe K.O.N Orizu III.
According to him, the value of any society lies in its rich cultural heritage, since no society exists without a culture "one of the reasons for the breakdown of laws and regulations is because of the loss of cultural values. A society that seeks to grow in values and morals maintains and celebrates its culture. This is what the people of Nnewi are doing with the Ofala Nnewi Festival and it is quite commendable to have a brand like MTN support the festival. This only shows its commitment towards identifying with the interest of the community where it operates," he stated.
In the same vein, Igwe Orizu, also expressed his gratitude to the telecommunication for its sponsorship in the last six years.
"Over the years' MTN through its contributions has elevated our Ofala Festival to a much higher level of attraction," he remarked.
Expressing MTN's commitment to the development and promotion of indigenous culture, the Regional Marketing Manager, South East, Dan Nwankwo, stated: "MTN is committed towards enriching the lives of its customers. And how do we do this?
