Glo gives aviation workers communications package
By Kokumo Goodie, Lagos, Nigeria
Nigeria's national second operator, Globacom, has connected workers of the Federal Ministry of Aviation to a special telecoms package which will assist in the effective delivery of aviation services through seamless, quality and cost-effective communication with one another.
The package is designed to cater to the needs of the ministry and will also enable aviation workers to communicate with their families at near zero cost.
Speaking during the launch of the package in Abuja, Globacom's Head, Public Sector, Mr. Tunde Amunikoro, said: "Communication is key to efficient service delivery and speed and that is why we in Glo are excited to partner with the Aviation Ministry on the special lines. We believe the efficiency of the Aviation Sector is going to move several notches higher with this service."
He explained that the essence of the special package is to enable the workers to send or receive alerts and reach out to critical stakeholders, particularly those in distress, without being encumbered by the non-availability of recharge cards, even in the remotest part of the country.
He further explained that those who receive the lines are only required to pay a relatively low monthly service rental after which they will be able to communicate with all those who have the special lines, including their families, without incurring extra cost on airtime.
Amunikoro said family members were included in the package to ensure that, apart from on-the-job effectiveness, all the workers of the Ministry who are on the special package lines will have peace of mind as they can remain connected at no extra cost with their families from anywhere in the country.
While launching the package at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, venue of the event, the Minister for Aviation, Mr. Osita Chidoka said the special package would make work easier for all staff.
