Last Friday, at the Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Globacom stunned the world with the unveiling of a range of new services and a new communication direction. The company highlighted key areas it would focus on to include the revolutionary Glo Healthcare, a digital health assistant designed to help Nigerians access best global health care directly on their phone; connect them with specialised doctors worldwide and allow scheduling of appointment on their smart-phones; track key health parameters (BP, Sugar etc); and access information on common medical conditions and public health at the click of a button, all information that would be available in audio translation in Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba.

Yes, Mike Adenuga,GCON, CSG, CLH, the Chairman of the telecoms giant, Globacom,is a bold disrupter of the telecoms model. And Nigeria and Africa are the better for it. He enables telecoms in a way no other magnate has done. His forays into the business sector are richly layered and iconic. A passionate devotee to telecoms business and communication across Africa, Adenuga is a patriot whose commitment to national and economic stability are beyond doubt. Indeed, what many have always known and upheld that Globacom is the telecoms network of choice in Nigeria and beyond was lent further credence by no less an international figure than the world heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua. Sighting its reach and speed, the efficiency and ease of its services, the Nigerian-born British boxer described Globacom as his reliable partner. “I respect the ownership and management of Globacom and as a Nigerian, I believe charity must begin from home. I believe in Glo,” he said.

Speaking on the values he shares with the wholly Nigerian brand, Joshua, who holds four major world championship belts namely International Boxing Federation (IBF) title, World Boxing Association (WBA) title, World Boxing Organisation (WBO) title, and International Boxing Organisation (IBO) title, said, “We have the fastest speed, longest reach and the Nigerian fighting spirit as game changers. Glo, I hail o!” Globacom’s endorsement contract with Joshua covers Nigeria and Ghana.
