Globacom Wins Big At Nigerian Telecommunication Awards
Glo Mobile and Glo 1 also scooped three awards in the categories of ‘Best Telecom Operator of the Year- Data’ (Glo Mobile), ‘Most Innovative Telecom Operator of the Year’ (Glo Mobile), and ‘Best Submarine Company of the Year’ (Glo 1).
The awards are coinciding with the reemergence of Globacom as the second largest telecommunications operator in Nigeria, according to the latest figures released by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
The ’Telecom Investor of the Decade’ award was the highpoint of the well-attended ceremony, and was presented by the Chairman, Board of Directors of the Nigerian Telecom Awards, Chief Alex Akinyele, and the Vice Chairman and former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel. The award was received on Dr. Adenuga’s behalf by the Director of Mike Adenuga Group, Mr. Niyi Adewunmi.
According to the organizers, Dr. Adenuga was nominated on account of his “immense contributions to the growth of the telecommunications sector in the country” and was unanimously adjudged winner by a panel of assessors and judges. The organisers said no single investor in Africa has invested more in telecoms in the continent than Dr. Adenuga.
