Liberia’s premier GSM Company Lonestar Cell MTN has honored over 100 of its SIM Cards and Mobile Money registration agents otherwise known as foot soldiers for their dedicated services, which enable the entity to reach its peak in the SIM Card registration process. The par-time workers were certificated by the company as ambassadors of Lonestar Cell MTN for their hard work.
Speaking at the certification ceremony over the weekend, Lonestar Cell MTN Chief Executive Officer Tebogo Mogapi praised the ‘foot soldiers’ for their efforts in making the company reach its goal of SIMs and Mobile Money registrations. He encouraged them to continue their hard work for the company and demonstrate respect for their bosses and other staff.
CEO Mogapi described the SIM registration process as tedious, noting the foot soldiers did their best in the process. He said the process has also created jobs for Liberians and will continue to provide working opportunities in the absence of the SIM registration. He expressed the company’s commitment in working with the Government of Liberia in creating jobs for Liberians.
Speaking earlier, the Cooperate Communication Manager Dr. Laurence Bropleh said Lonestar Cell is committed in implementing mandate of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, which calls for private sector to create jobs for Liberians.
Dr. Bropleh said he is proud to see hundreds of Liberians honored for a job well done in rendering services to the people of Liberia. “This is how it should be, to see Liberians making contribution to their nation through a reputable company like Lonestar Cell,” Dr. Bropleh added.
Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, one of the honorees Darlingboy Diggs praised Lonestar Cell MTN for creating job opportunities for them.
