We Have Not Sent Out Any Text Messages On Behalf Of Political Parties – Telecoms Chamber

Published

on


The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications has disassociated itself from unsolicited political short messages (SMS) which are being sent mobile phone subscribers.

In a statement, the Chamber which represents three telecommunications operators namely AirtelTigo, MTN and Vodafone said its members are politically neutral and their operating policies prohibit the promotion of any political party.

The statement signed by the Chamber’s CEO, Mr Ken Ashigbey adds that no Mobile Network Operator has sent out any unsolicited text messages for and on behalf of any political party.

“The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications has noted with concern, customer complaints across various media relating to a recent political party’s unsolicited message.

The Chamber would like to state unequivocally that its members, the mobile network operators (MNOs), are politically neutral, and their policies and principles prohibit the promotion of any political party,” the Chamber said in a statement.

The statement comes after some telecommunications customers who received the unsolicited text messages (below) over the weekend raised concerns as to how the senders obtained their telephone numbers.

Similar messages also made the rounds before the voter registration exercise in June.

According to the Chamber, such unsolicited messages could come from any source which has a subscriber in their database.

Providing clarification as to how the text messages were sent to the public, the Chamber explained that “political parties rely on content providers to do bulk SMS transfers on their behalf.

Content providers build databases of phone numbers from various sources including online, social media etc.

Political Parties have access to data which they get through their own sources including their fundraising activities and other events.

” It also stated that its members do not give out contacts of their subscribers to content providers or marketers for targeting.

The statement urges “customers who wish to unsubscribe from UECs of any kind should type STOP (space) SENDERS’ NAME and send to the number from which the message or call was sent to stop receiving such messages”, adding that “if the UECs persists, contact your service provider to omit you from the promotional list and the Regulator as last resort.

4% Reduction In ‘Talk Tax’ Takes Effect Today

Published

on


Mobile subscribers and data users will from Tuesday, September 15, 2020, enjoy longer durations of voice and data bundles but pay the same amount of money for recharges.

This is because mobile network operators will be reducing the Communication Service Tax (CST), also known as “talk tax” charged on the use of communication services in the country.

The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, during the presentation of the 2020 mid-year budget review announced that the talk tax will be reduced from 9 percent to 5 percent.

This formed part of the government’s effort to alleviate the plight of Ghanaians during the coronavirus pandemic.

n a statement to confirm the implementation of the new tariff, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Ken Ashigbey, said, “The tariff adjustment programme means when our customers pay the same price they would enjoy more, which is in line with the government’s measures in alleviating cost burden on citizens in the wake of the global pandemic.”

The statement added, “Mobile Network Operators will notify their customers on the completion of the modification exercise and provide further transparency on the adjusted tariffs of their products and services while offering other relevant information post usage of these services.”

This new development, according to the statement, comes after “effective dialogue and stakeholder
engagements led by the Finance Ministry as well as our supervising Ministry and agencies”.

African Construction Giant, Sujimoto Explains 400% ROI In Two Years Offer

Published

on


Sujimoto Construction CEO, Sijibomi Ogundele, has said that 400% return in 2 years for investing in LeonardoBySujimoto is real, describing it as a great opportunity for ambitious investors.

Ogundele affirmed that the projected ROI is not a mere hype but a reality anyone who buys into LeonardobySujimoto project will enjoy.

Speaking with Vanguard, Ogundele explained that it is Sujimoto’s policy of putting value maximization over profit maximization and that investors will actually get over 400% because, by the time it is completed 2 years from now, LeonardoBySujimoto will cost $3million USD as against the $650k which it currently sells for.

He said, “First, the Leonardo is not just your regular high-rise building, it is a fully automated luxury waterfront project with a world-class interactive lobby – first of its kind in Nigeria, Indoor Virtual Golf, Standard IMAX Cinema, award-winning Zaha Hadid Bathroom, Luxury Crèche, Private Salon, world-class SPA and other record-breaking features and facilities.

“Picture this, a 3 Bedroom at the Leonardo is currently selling for $650,000 USD. Upon completion in 2 years’ time and considering the kind of features and facilities we are bringing into the Leonardo, this same 3 Bedroom will sell for $3million USD, giving you over 400% ROI! The nicest and most expensive 3 Bedroom apartment on Bourdillon Road and Eko Atlantic are selling for $3m USD. What we have designed is 3 times better and 3 times cheaper.

“In 2018, when we launched our recently concluded GiulianoBySujimoto project in Banana Island, a unit sold for N280 million as off-plan. Upon completion, this same project is currently selling for N600 million, giving investors over 200% ROI in 2 years! The Leonardo is 20 times bigger with more features and facilities that will rival and outclass most 5-star hotels in the world.

“There are 3 types of people in life, the Optimist who sees a huge investment opportunity in the LeonardoBySujimoto and buys numerous units off-plan; the realist who knows the Leonardo is an incredible investment opportunity but is skeptical, waiting for some external validation, only to realise months later that the prices have increased by 50%; and the Pessimist who never sees how a real estate investment can yield 400% ROI.

“At Sujimoto, we’ve built our foundation on Quality, erected our pillars on Integrity and made Luxury the driving force of who we are.

“In 2016 when the economic recession halted the LorenzoBySujimoto project, none of our investors lost their money as we returned over half a million dollar. Even though we lost a lot of money, but losing investors’ money was non- negotiable, because the bank of credibility is too expensive to withdraw from, as TRUST is her CURRENCY

“It is rather unfortunate that we live in a country where people have lost the enthusiasm to dream and every great opportunity is seen as a scam, too incredible to be true. However, it is also interesting to note that within the last few months, we have sold more units in 5 weeks than we have sold in 5 years of our existence.

“The Leonardo is offering discerning investors a whopping 400% in 2 years, a return on investment that not even gold, treasury bills or cryptocurrencies can boast of! With Treasury Bills and Fixed deposit at 3.5% ROI annually, where would you rather invest?”
