In its quest for youth empowerment across Nigeria, telecommunications giant, Globacom, has commenced a scheme under which 150 outstanding students will be rewarded just as 30 tertiary institutions will receive internet routers courtesy of the brand.
According to Globacom, the best five final year students in 30 tertiary institutions across the country will be rewarded with free smartphones loaded with six months data while each of the 30 selected tertiary institutions will also receive five Glo routers loaded with data that can be used for two years free-of-charge for academic research.
Babcock University, Ilishan, Ogun State, became the first beneficiary of the scheme on Monday as the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Iheanyichukwu Okoro, led other members of the university to receive the routers presented by Globacom for research purposes.
In the same vein, five outstanding final year students of the school, including Dogo Edafe Bawa of Business Education; Olusoji Ifejesu Precious of Accounting Department; Ojutiku Toluwanimi Oluwaseun of Economics; Ajulibe Goziem Benjamin of Medical Laboratory Science, and Anifowose Airat Morolake of Computer Science Department were gifted with Glo/Huawei smartphones.
Globacom’s Regional Manager, Retail Sales, Lagos/Ogun, Mr. Olufolahan Faseyitan, encouraged the university community to utilise the opportunity of Globacom’s ongoing week-long data clinic to upgrade to Glo 4G to avail themselves the experience of new speed of life and also enjoy memorable communication experience on the network.
The availability of Glo 4G in all tertiary institutions in the country, he said, is a confirmation of the fact that Globacom has the widest, most accessible and reliable 4G LTE coverage in Nigeria.
Deputy Human Resources Director, Huawei, Mrs. Dorothy Johnson, expressed delight that Huawei was partnering with Globacom on the project. She added that they also shared the no-limit philosophy of Glo and had resolved to continue supporting efforts to improve subscribers’ experience on the network.
