Glo mobile adds new communities

Globacom, the Second National Operator, (SNO) has taken its services to more towns in Delta, Niger and Bayelsa states.

A step which SNO described as part of its objective to bring telephony to all Nigerians in cities and hinterlands.

Business Champion recalls that in Bayelsa state, Glo recently rolled out in Kaiama, Amasoma and Opoku .

Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Globacom, Mr. Mohammed Jameel said the firm’s activities hinged on patriotism, enhanced value proposition and empowerment of the people.

"We are proud of our modest contributions to the socio-economic progress in the country, particularly in the area of job creation, provision of telecom services and social responsibility constructs," he said.

Stressing that this is a self-appointed task and Globacom is determined to remain on that path of honor.

"We are challenged to seize the initiative to help appoint a new direction for our fatherland. Our vision is to build a truly Nigerian company … the biggest and best in the continent." "Our modest strides in barely two years of operations portend greater heights for Globacom and indeed Nigeria", Mr. Jameel said.

With this development, Glo mobile has now recorded coverage of 32 states nationwide and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

Globacom also said, plans have advanced for the remaining four states to be launched soon.
