Guinness, has officially commissioned the 16 plots of land at Appolonia City, near Kpone, Greater Accra Region, as part of its on-going ‘Win a Piece of Ghana’ promotion launched earlier this month which will give 16 Ghanaians the opportunity to win a plot of land in Appolonia City, Accra.
At the ceremony, attended by officials of Forestry Commission, Ministry of Lands, executives of Appolonia City, the Chief and stool elders of Appolonia, as well as staff of Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited, 61 trees were planted as an additional legacy for the land as part of World Tree Planting Day.
Speaking at the land commissioning, Guinness Marketing Manager, Mrs. Lesego Lebogang Babe, said “the 16 plots of land that will be given out to winners in the on-going promotion. Over a 16 week period, we will reward 16 consumers with a ‘Piece of Ghana’- their own plot of land.”
She further lauded the innovation of Appolonia City for their swift response to the partnership with Guinness in ensuring that 16 individuals have a chance to start a new legacy by winning their own piece of Ghana.
“Being able to own a piece of Ghana is everyone’s dream and it’s heartwarming to see this come true. One of the best rewards you can give anybody is land and the fact that it’s not just any land but one within a planned city makes it even better,” said Bright Owusu-Amofah CEO Appolonia City.
For her part, Communications and Engagement Manager for GGBL, Rita Rockson, added, “The planting of the 61 trees here today to mark Ghana’s 61 years of Independence is the first step in the transformation of this land. Our hope is that this will inspire our winners to create a beautiful space where they can use the land to fulfil their dreams and build their own legacy.”
