For the stream of Nigerians and other nationals residing in or doing business in the everÂ busy border community of Seme and Badagry in Lagos, there is cheering news from Globacom,Â which on Thursday opened its one-stop customer care shop, Gloworld, in the community.
The shop is the first of its kind to be opened by any telecommunications operator toÂ cater for the people of the area.
The new shop will eliminate the time and money spent by residents of the area in movingÂ down to a similar shop at the Lagos State University, LASU to experience GlobacomÂ services as it will henceforth cater for the needs of subscribers in Seme, Badagry andÂ other communities in the area.
Speaking at the event, Managing Director of Gloworld, Mrs Shade Olusope said that theÂ shop, located strategically inside the Conoil Mega Station at the Nigerian/Benin border,Â is expected to bring Globacomâ€™s customer care services closer to more people in Seme andÂ the surrounding communities.
She also disclosed that the new shop was the 18th in Lagos, adding that as many as 20 ofÂ such shops would be commissioned in various parts of the country before the end of thisÂ year.
The traditional ruler of Kweme, under which Seme is located, Oba (Dr) Sejinro OlalekanÂ James expressed happiness over the decision by Globacom to site the shop in the area andÂ expressed confidence that it would serve the needs of the people.
The Commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA in Seme, Mr. AmehÂ Inalegwu said the new shop opened by Globacom had become an instant international outletÂ as it would serve the needs of people from Nigeria and other countries passing throughÂ the border daily.
