Ghana Telecommunications Company Limited, (GTCL) will be changing its trading name from Vodafone Ghana to Telecel Ghana, effective February 28, 2024. This change follows the approval of the takeover of Vodafone Ghana by Telecel by the National Communication Authority (NCA). Telecel assumed a majority shareholder status, with the Government of Ghana through the State Interests and Governance Authority as a minority shareholder with 30%.
Vodafone Ghana has been operating under the Telecel brand for about a year or more and controls about 18 percent of the mobile telephony market share. In a communication to customers, the Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Ghana, Patricia Obo-Nai, emphasized that the registered name of the company, Ghana Telecommunications Company Limited, GTCL, in which its licenses and regulatory approvals are held, will not change.
Vodafone Ghana expresses excitement about this transition and looks forward to continuing the journey of business continuity, great network connectivity, and enhanced service quality with its customer base.
