MTN on Friday presented a cheque for Ghc 10,000.00 at a ceremony in Ho to support the 2009 Yam Festival of the chiefs and people of the Asogli State.

Eleanor Adzaho-Sarpong, Acting Corporate Services Executive, who led the MTN team, said the donation goes to strengthen the bonds between the mobile telephone company and the Asogli State which should continue to grow beyond the days of the festival.

She lauded Togbe Afede XIV, Agbogbome Fia, and also President of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs, for his efforts to promote education in the region through the institution of an educational endowment fund.

Togbe Afede sat in state to recieve the MTN donation and others and homage from identifiable groups in the area.

The Asogli Yam Festival for 2009 started with a general cleaning on September 4, and a pilgrimage to Notsie in Togo, said to be the ancestral home of the Ewes in Ghana, a trip to the Adaklu Mountain, dubbed conquering the summit of the Adaklu mountain and purification rites.

The festival's climax is a grand durbar in Ho on Saturday September 26 followed on Sunday by a thanksgiving service and a football match between Asogli and Notsie.

Meanwhile, Ho on the eve of the grand durbar on Saturday is bubbling with activity, with flyers of the telecommunication companies and wayside vending for mobile phone recharge services noticeably increasing.
