Social Media Goes Wild After Vodafone Ghana Appointed Its First Ghanaian CEO

Patricia Obo-Nai

Last year marked ten years since Vodafone started operating in the country.

Ten years of displaying exemplary leadership in telecommunications, support for small and medium scale enterprises, customer experiential, brand social media engagement and corporate social responsibility.

While Vodafone Ghana has over the years provided competitive voice and data services for Ghanaians, the position of the Chief Executive Officer has always been occupied by a foreigner.

The current CEO who will be leaving this April, Yolanda Cuba, is South African.

However, yesterday, it was reported that for the first time in their decade of operating in the country, a Ghanaian has been given the top job at Vodafone Ghana.

Patricia Obo-Nai, who is already a member of the Vodafone Ghana Executive Committee is the first Ghanaian to be appointed CEO of Vodafone Ghana.

Now the fact that she is the first Ghanaian to occupy the top job alone is making people go bonkers, but throw her gender on top of it, then you have what most people will call the cherry on the cake.

Many have reflected on her appointment as a nod to Ghanaian women who are brainy, smart and drop-dead gorgeous.

The outgoing Vodafone Ghana CEO, Yolanda Cuba led people in sending messages of goodwill to Patricia on social media.
