The entire offer will last for two months while the entire process should be completed by September 2018 which will culminate in the listing on the stock market.

CEO of MTN East, Southern Africa and Ghana, Ebenezer Asante said the company has introduced a new way of listing on the stock exchange.

“We move into another phase of our business which seeks to give Ghanaians that unique opportunity to own a share of MTN. The entire offer is for two months,…I am excited to say that we are allowing shares to be bought through MTN mobile money,” he added.
