Sat, 7th Nov, 2015, Accra: GTP, Ghana’s foremost and best known Wax Print brand officially presented the overall winner of the nationwide consumer promotion dubbed GTP OGA CONSUMER PROMOTION to the winner, Dr Mansa Amamoo, a medical practitioner at a short but impressive ceremony in the Woodin Boutique at Osu, Accra. Dr Amamoo took home the coveted prize of a fully paid for trip for two to Dubai.
Presenting the prize to the winner, the Managing Director of GTP, Mr Kofi Boateng said he was very happy that a young Ghanaian lady emerged the overall winner. He explained that women, particularly Ghanaian women, form the majority of GTP consumption base so it was just proper that a woman took home the prize. He congratulated Dr Amamoo for patronizing GTP products and urged her to continue to be a good ambassador of the brand especially among the youth.
The Promotion which ended on 30th Sept, 2015 was aimed creating awareness and usage for the new mobile phoned-based innovation the brand had introduced earlier in the year. This authentication seeks to empower consumers to verify if the product they buy is actually genuine GTP or fake one. The Company introduced this service in response to the growing incidence of counterfeit activities making it difficult for consumers who want to buy GTP to tell the genuine one from the fake ones.
Dr Amamoo who is preparing towards her marriage ceremony said she is a great fun of GTP and she decided to buy the products to use as giveaway gifts for her invited guests during her marriage ceremony. She said she only scratched and texted the codes to 1393 with the sole aim of verifying their genuineness. Winning a prize never crossed her mind. So it came as a pleasant surprise to her when she had a call from GTP first announcing to her that she had won a smart phone. As if that was not enough, she had a second call from GTP, this time announcing to her that she had won the overall prize. She was so happy that this prize package came in as the best wedding gift for her and her partner.
The Marketing Director of GTP, Rev Stephen Kofi Badu expressed satisfaction with the success of the promotion. He said the two main objectives of the promotion – to create awareness and usage of the authentication service and improve sales – were achieved and thanked Ghanaians for participating actively in the promotion.
