Globacom has congratulated the government and people of Nigeria on the 14th anniversary of democratic rule in the country.

In a message to Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s Democracy Day celebration, Group Chief Operating Officer (GCOO), Mohamed Jameel, said that there was so much to celebrate as Nigeria marks the 14th year of its return to democratic governance.

“Every young democracy will experience developmental challenges in certain aspects of life. We are happy that, despite such challenges, Nigeria has in the last few years made appreciable progress in its journey to nationhood,” he noted.

He said he was proud of the ability of Nigerians to weather the storm and remain one united country notwithstanding temporary security issues, adding that the foundation for the emergence of a truly great nation was being laid by government.

“We are happy to be part of our young and growing democracy. The improvements made so far since the return to democratic governance in 1999, with the reforms in the political, economic, financial and telecommunication sectors, are necessary steps to steady growth,” Jameel stated.

He added that Globacom had in the last 10 years of its operations played a major role in the growth of the telecommunications sector through the provision of innovative and affordable products and services. “Globacom has positively affected lives and businesses in the country since the company began operations in 2003,” said Jameel.

He affirmed that Globacom would continue to empower Nigerians with world class telecommunication services and limitless opportunities to excel in their endeavour.

The GCOO restated the company’s belief in the ability of Nigeria to rise above present challenges and become a truly great nation.
