Excited customers have thronged the new Globacom retail shop in the centre of Auchi in Edo State.
The customers who arrived at the retail shop before it was officially opened recently enjoyed the unique services that have been brought to their environment.
One of the early birds at the newly opened Gloworld shop, was the Deputy Rector of Auchi Polytechnic, Engr. Zubair Adebayo, who came in to do his SIM registration as statutorily required by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC). Other subscribers also rushed in to perform other transactions including purchase of SIM cards and data packages.
They however had to wait a few moments until the shop was formally opened for business.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Zubair explained that Globacom had been able to build confidence with the Nigerian market due to its pro-people and market-friendly strategies.
According to him, Globacom had shown that telecom was not only for the rich but for all.
Also making remarks at the opening ceremony, the Chairman of Etsako West Local Area, Hon Inusa Imoniti, represented by the Vice Chair, Hon. Umar Jeleed, said that Globacom had made telecoms a right and not a privilege for the generality of people.
He described the company as a partner in progress with the people of Auchi.
In his welcome address, Globacom’s Regional Manager, Activation (Benin) , Mr. Ezeora Obiora, stated that Auchi is a strategic town as it is one of the busiest locations in the entire Afemai jurisdiction of Edo State.
“This new service centre will be open Monday to Saturday to give our numerous customers the ample opportunity of experiencing our quality customer service without having to travel long distances. It is our desire to facilitate access to our products and services to all our customers”, he said.
