Modern Auto to partner Otumfuo on youth training

Automobile company, Modern Auto Services Company Limited (MAS), is to partner the Otumfuo Charity Foundation to provide youth training programmes in the Ashanti Region.

The General Manager of the company, Mr. Amine Kabbara, who announced this in Kumasi, said the decision formed part of its corporate social responsibility.

“We will actively partner the Otumfuo Charity Foundation in the area of skills training for our youth, and also support community policing programmes in Kumasi,” he said, adding that MAS identified with development concerns of the region.

Mr Kabbara was addressing guests, including the Akyeampimhene, Nana Aduse Poku, to commission a new MAS showroom at Adum in Kumasi.

At the event, Mr. Kabbara also announced a GH¢3,000 discount on any Tata vehicle at the showroom till the end of February, saying it is one of many exciting packages for its customers.

“We and the Tata brand share a long history in the country’s automobile industry, and so this demonstrates the importance we attach to the Ashanti Region,” he said.

He said the addition of Tata to its existing franchise meant a variety of reliable brands to consumers, as businesses and residents in the region “can now access brand new Saloon cars, Pick-ups, SUVs, light and heavy duty trucks and mini vans from reputable brands such as Tata, Foton & SsangYong, all under one roof.”

The Akyeampimhene, who represented the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, commended MAS for the decision to train the youth in the region.

This, Oheneba Aduse Poku said, will open the youth to job opportunities.

He observed that the Ashanti Region was replete with youthful artisans who desired professional training to become more resourceful.

He, therefore, welcomed the company to the region, assuring them of the Asantehene’s readiness to partner it over its social responsibility.

The General Manager of Tata Africa Holdings Limited (TAHL), Vivek Saraswat, hailed its partnership with MAS as yielding successful dividends.
