Starcomms explains partnership with AHRLC

LEADING Private Telecom Operator (PTO), Starcomms has explained its recent partnership with the Ibadan-based African Heritage Research Library and Cultural Centere (AHRLC), saying it is in line with the firm’s corporate social responsibility.

The partnership is focused on the sponsoring of the official commissioning of the centre in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The centre is known as the first rural community-based African studies research library on the continent.

Director Marketing, Starcomms, Mr. Omar Lababidi, said the company’s decision to sponsor the event was borne out of the need to further project Starcomms as a lifestyle brand that is committed to improving the lives of Nigerians in very meaningful ways.

Mr. Lababidi said Starcomms as much as provident prevails, would continue to identify with projects that promote and protect not just Nigeria cultural heritage, but that of Africa in general.

He noted that in recent times, Starcomms has been consistent in sponsoring corporate and social events in the country, including the second edition of the Surulere Trade Fair held at the National Stadium, Surulere Lagos.

The commissioning was performed by the governor of Oyo State, Chief Rasheed Adewolu Ladoja, and attracted visitors and well wishers from within the country, continent and Europe as well as Asia Pacific.

The PTO also prouds itself as the first Nigerian to have crossed the 100,000 subscriber line and currently has over 180,000 subscribers, even as its concluding plans to take services to Port Harcourt and Abuja.
