Cross River to name Glo official telco, opens Gloworld

Remmy Nweke

PLANS may have been advanced by the Cross River State government to name the Second National Operator (SNO), Globacom, an official telecommunications service provider in the state.

Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Chief Johnson Ebokpo, disclosed this at the opening of a GloWorld, a state-of-the-art customer care centre at the state capital Calabar.

As disclosed by him, the state has initiated moves to partner the SNO in this respect, expressing optimism that the opening of GloWorld would definitely pave the way to the actualization of that dream.

Chief Ebokpo, later declared the centre open, commending, Globacom’s Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga jnr. for his foresight and people-friendly telephone enterprise.

He said also that the coming of Globacom to the state, has made the world a truly global village, having made communications easy with the network reaching even the most remote villages in Cross River State.

In keeping with the vision of Glo, Ebokpo noted the telco has even made itself closer to the people with the GloWorld, saying the state has been waiting for Globacom to open its office and outlet in the state.

The state, he further said, has a soft spot for Globacom because it is a home grown telecom company.

He was later attended to as the first customer, followed by Chief Linus Okom, the Ada Bekwarra, and Dr. Phillip Obaji, Permanent Secretary, Cross River State Ministry of Health.

Managing Director, Gloworld, Miss Shade Boyede said Globacom’s plan is to open the outlet cum customer care centre in every state of the federation, thereby positioning the company nearer to its teeming customers nationwide.

This, Ms Boyede, said, would afford customers not to travel far to access its quality products and services or to resolve complaints.
