According to her, “Globacom is a company that I’ve always admired. And I’m delighted to have this opportunity to work with globacom. As we all know, Globacom has a long history of rewarding excellence and empowering people. I am happy to join a long list of stars like Anthony Joshua, Mikel Obi, Osaze Odewingie among others. As a global ambassador, I hope to mentor and inspire younger people to achieve their goals.
“I’m going to do my very best to be a good representative of the company and use that to inspire the next generation. However, I am grateful to the chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, for giving me this amazing opportunity. And thanks to everyone that has made it possible. And I’m also thankful to everyone that has taken the time out to attend this event.”
