Glo Ghana: Andah resignation won’t hurt performance
By Nana Appiah Acquaye, Accra, Ghana
Glo Ghana says the surprise resignation of its COO will not have an adverse effect on the company’s performance.
The Public Relations Officer of Glo, Ekow Quarshi Ghana told Live News Report that the resignation of its Chief Operating Officer, George Andah, would not have an adverse effect on the performance or the image of the sixth telecom giant.
Sources said Andah’s resignation, which took effect within the last quarter of 2012 according to sources came as a surprise to his bosses in Nigeria and is expected to affect Glo’s performance in his home country Ghana.
Following Glo’s introduction in Ghana as the sixth telco operator, its performance has not been impressive, judging by its current market share which, according to the National Communication Authority’s March 2013 statistics, decreased by 0.4 percentage points to stand at 1,607,907 at the end of the period under review.
But according to Glo’s Ghana PRO, Andah’s resignation would not affect Glo's performance here in Ghana, because Andah was not directly linked with the operations of Ghana but rather Nigeria.
Information gathered by Biztechafrica has revealed that George Andah is now in Ghana running his own consultancy firm.
Andah, who joined Glo Ghana in late 2011 after a brief stint with Bharti Airtel, resigned from his post as the head of Marketing and Promotion in Nigeria last year. He has been described by some market watchers in Ghana's telecommunications industry as a significant pillar in the country's telecom revolution. He was instrumental in the growth of some big brands in Ghana including Guinness Ghana and MTN.
