Vodafone Ghana has told Citi Business News it is working round the clock to restore network operations to residents of Bawku and surrounding towns after a halt in operations due to a fire gutted the district office at Bawku last Friday.
Items worth millions of cedis were destroyed when fire gutted the district offices of Vodafone and the Ghana Revenue Authority.
Citi Business News also understands subscribers of Vodafone can neither make nor calls on the network.
The Ghana National Fire Service is however yet to disclose the cause of the fire.
But the Corporate Communications Manager for Vodafone Ghana, Ebenezer Amankwaa tells Citi Business News, efforts are being made to restore the service by the close of work today.
“Essentially as a telecommunications company, the business we are in is to ensure that every customer is comfortable getting in touch with their friends and relatives at any point in time they want to. The fire outbreak at Bawku was unfortunate. As a result of that, we had issues with connectivity,” he explained.
Ebenezer Amankwaa added, “As we speak, our network services are working round the clock, we expect to restore services to the people of Bawku and its environs. I think that essentially, we are looking at the end of business today to restore services to the area of Bawku.”
