It was double honours for Globacom on Friday night as the National telecommunications operator won two awards at two different ceremonies held in Victoria Island, Lagos.

The first honour came at the Champion Newspaper’s 2013 Awards at Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos where the company emerged Brand of the Year, while the second award was at the Marketing Edge Brands Summit and Awards Night at Federal Palace Hotel where Globacom was recognised as the Outstanding Telecoms Brand of the Decade.

Publisher of Champion Newspapers, Dr Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, said Globacom was honoured for making a significant difference in the telecoms industry in the past year. “The Champion Award was instituted to identify and celebrate those who have effectively utilised any and every opportunity to lead at one level or the other for the good of our people.” He observed that Globacom had consistently supported efforts to empower the people of Nigeria and accelerate national development.

The Brand of the Year Award was presented to Globacom by the Director General of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation, Sally Mbanefo.

Other winners included Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State; former Governor of Anambra, Peter Obi; former Commonwealth Secretary General, Emeka Anyaoku; industrialists Aliko Dangote, Oba Otudeko and Leo Stan Eke; Minister of Agriculture, Akinwunmi Adesina; Zenith Bank and Mutual Benefits Assurance.

At the Marketing Edge Awards, organisers said the choice of Globacom as Brand of the Decade followed a painstaking review and assessment of the contribution of telecommunications to the growth and prosperity of the integrated marketing communications industry.

“Among the telecommunications service providers considered, your organisation stood head over shoulders in the crowd. You were unanimously voted as the outstanding telecoms brand in Nigeria’s corporate milieu,” the organisers said.

Marketing Edge is Nigeria’s leading brands and marketing publication which has been in operation for over ten years.
