One of the things MTN is doing more this year, is listening, celebrating and delighting customers.
We take customer feedback very seriously and in fact, we are only happy when our customers are happy. Our customersâ€™ needs are paramount, hence the need to always engage with them.â€

â€œWe have enjoyed a lot of services from MTN which is the biggest telecommunications company in Nigeria. This explains why MTN is our preferred choice for our inward and outward dialing projects, which they have been operating for the past 10 years,” he said. The guests were serenaded with light music by a saxophonist, Perpetual Atife who is also an alumnus of the MTN Foundation Music Scholars Initiative.
