Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has commended Globacom Chairman Dr. Mike Adenuga Jr for his immense contribution to the socio-economic development of Nigeria and the West African sub-region.

The President made the commendation at the 2012 National Honours Awards in Abuja, where Dr. Adenuga was decorated with the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON) medal. He led 148 other eminent Nigerians who were also decorated for outstanding services to the country.

The President singled out Dr Adenuga for praise at the ceremony noted that the Globacom Chairman had contributed immensely as a businessman and entrepreneur to the growth of the Nigerian economy. “He worked very hard to establish Globacom which today provides hundreds of thousands of jobs in Nigeria, Ghana and Benin Republic. He has established a formidable brand. His company also has footprints in Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal and The Gambia,” President Jonathan said.

He urged Dr Adenuga and the other recipients to continue to be beacons of hope for the nation. “I encourage you to sustain the tempo of performance and to re-dedicate yourself to the service of humanity and God,” the President added.

In nominating Dr Adenuga as the only recipient of the GCON award in 2012, the Presidency explained that he was one of the greatest employers of labour in Nigeria today. “Chief Adenuga has done a great deal for the country through his numerous business concerns which employ thousands of Nigerians,” it said in a statement.
