To mark the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Ghana’s Independence, the worldwide operating money transfer provider MoneyGram has launched a promotion campaign to reward customers in Ghana receiving international money transfers from family and friends abroad.
From 28 February to 30 June 2017, customers in Ghana who receive GHȼ1000 or above in a transaction will receive a scratch card and a chance to win one of six Suzuki Alto cars and other prizes such as branded MoneyGram souvenirs and household appliances.
“We wanted to become a part of this important and joyful anniversary and give our customers another reason to celebrate,” said Kofi Akyea, regional marketing manager, Anglophone West Africa, at MoneyGram, speaking in Accra at a ceremony to launch the company’s Ghana@60 promotion.
“Through this promotion we wanted to give back to the communities we serve through our reliable money transfer services,” he added.
