We are extremely delighted to be joining forces with Glo to launch this exciting initiative.”
“We see this partnership with Prepay Nation as a natural step to improving the experience of our customers,” said Hardeep Khertepal, Head of Business at Glo Mobile Ghana. “Offering the convenience of a digital channel allows our customers the opportunity to always stay connected.
