Expressing her delight, the First Lady of Lagos State, said: “It is my pleasure to be here today for an initiative that I consider a solid example of sustained positive impact within our communities – MTN’s 21 days of Y’ello Care driven by MTN staff.

“I find it particularly gratifying that this year’s programme is shining a spotlight on SMEs.

“I applaud the Lagos State officials, MTN partners, SMEs, MTN Board, Management and staff, and all other stakeholders present here today for driving and facilitating this noble cause,” she added.
