MTN Ghana has partnered Ecobank Ghana and Samsung Ghana to support their customers to purchase and use Samsung smart phones and other gadgets and pay in instalments in a promo dubbed ‘Own a Galaxy Now ’.
During the launch in Accra, Nana Asantewaa Amegashie, Senior Manager for Consumer Marketing of MTN Ghana, explained that customers must be MTN users, salaried workers who save with Ecobank and fans of Samsung phones.
She said in the promo that lasts for two years, customers get to pay their instalments between six and 12 months, and enjoy free data for six months.
A speech read on behalf of Mr Tara Squire, Regional Head of Consumer Banking for Ecobank Ghana and Anglophone West Africa, stated that the promotion is one of the numerous ways by which the bank empowers and encourages members of the Ecobank family to own modern devices and to embrace technology.
“One can pick a top of the range Samsung phone or other hand-held Samsung device of choice and pay monthly. We present very flexible, fast, exciting, convenient and cost-effective consumer credit schemes to suit every pocket,” he stated.
Mr Eugene Nahm, Managing Director of Samsung Ghana, said the company is excited to partner with MTN Ghana and Ecobank Ghana because recently people had changed the way they communicated with their family and Samsung was ready to offer customers with good devices for them to enjoy technology.

The bank approves after checking customer’s details and ability to pay. Bank issues confirmation via email to the agent at an MTN shop and after completion of checks, informs customer of approval.
