Mike Adenuga is a worthy son of the soil-Awujale


The Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona has poured encomiums of Globacom Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga Jnr. describing him as a worthy son of the soil for bank-rolling the Ojude Oba Festival for the tenth consecutive year!

Oba Adetona gave this commendation at this year’s Ojude Oba festival tagged: ‘‘Harnessing our Cultural Heritage for Economic Development,’’ in Ijebu Ode yesterday, stating that Adenuga was a rare gem who has put Nigeria on the global map as a result of his industry, doggedness and business integrity.

He said: ‘‘Through Adenuga, thousands of jobless people now have means of sustenance. He has greatly enhanced the economy of the nation through his business ventures which have grown and extended to other parts of the world. Globacom has, through its innovative technological edge, become the leader in the telecoms market in Nigeria and  since Globacom undertook to be the main sponsor of the festival four years  ago, we have been going up and up, better and better.’’

‘‘The company’s sponsorship of the event has raised it to an enviable tourists’ delight which attracts people from all walks of life and from other parts of the country,’’ the traditional ruler added.

In his goodwill message to the festival, Dr Mike Adenuga said his company had shown interest in the festival because its socio-cultural value complemented Globacom’s vision to celebrate the unique accomplishments of Nigeria as a nation.

He described Ojude Oba as a social melting pot where all divergent issues affecting the lives of the people were congealed and where the sons and daughters of Ijebuland, both home and abroad, regarded themselves as active players in the socio-economic project of developing Ijebuland.

According to him, Globacom was mindful of the importance of the festival to the cultural and religious wellbeing of the people of Ijebuland, hence, its commitment to the sponsorship. ‘‘This kind of commitment to diligence, excellence and avowed determination to contribute to the furtherance of social development, which the Ijebu are noted for is the very essence of Globacom’s continued relevance as a frontliner in laudable initiatives of Nigeria’s telecommunications industry,” he said.

In her remarks, Special Guest of Honour,  the Vice Chairman, South Atlantic Petroleum (SAPETRO), Senator Daisy Danjuma praised Globacom for its support for culture and tradition exhibited through its partnership with organisers of cultural events across the nation. She also lauded the people of Ijebuland for keeping the age-long tradition alive.
