The Vice Chancellor of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, Prof Bartho Okolo, has said that the new Gloworld opened by Globacom opposite the institution at its main campus in Nsukka is a one-stop complex to meet critical needs of the university community and the rest of the town.
Through his Deputy Prof. Isaac Asuzu , the Vice Chancellor who commissioned the new Gloworld, stated that the facility was important because it would enhance both the social life and academic pursuits of the teachers and students as well as the conduct of business in the environment.
“This Gloworld is important for all of us, students, staff and the entire Nsukka Community as it has brought telecommunications closer to us,” he said.
Glo opened her flagship outlet known as Gloworld in Nsukka to ensure adequate provision of products and world class service delivery to the good people of the city and the entire University Community.
Speaking at the event, Globacom’s Divisional Director, South East, Mr. Mike Ehumadu said it was the cordial relationship between the university and Globacom and by extension the entire Zone that culminated in the establishment of the outlet to serve the university and the good people of Nsukka.
“This is the first flagship outlet by any Telecommunications operator either in the institution or the entire Nsukka Zone,” Ehumadu said.
In her remarks, the Head of Gloworld, Titi Ebinisi, said the Gloworld concept is aimed at efficient service delivery on a state-of-the-arts technology platform to subscribers by well-trained members of staff.
