For the stream of Nigerians
and other nationals residing in or doing business in the ever busy border community of Seme and Badagry in Lagos, there is cheering news from Globacom, which on last week opened its one-stop customer care shop, Gloworld, in the community.
The shop is the first of its kind to be opened by any telecommunications operator to cater for the people of the area.
The new shop will eliminate the time and money spent by residents of the area in moving down to a similar shop at the Lagos State University (LASU) to experience Globacom services as it will henceforth cater for the needs of subscribers in Seme, Badagry and other communities in the area.
Speaking at the event, Managing Director of Gloworld, Mrs Shade Olusope said that the shop, located strategically inside the Conoil Mega Station at the Nigerian/Benin border, is expected to bring Globacom’s customer care services closer to more people in Seme and the surrounding communities.
She also disclosed that the new shop was the 18th in Lagos, adding that as many as 20 of such shops would be commissioned in various parts of the country before the end of this year.
The traditional ruler of Kweme, under which Seme is located, Oba (Dr) Sejinro Olalekan James expressed happiness over the decision by Globacom to site the shop in the area and expressed confidence that it would serve the needs of the people.
The Commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Seme, Mr. Ameh Inalegwu said the new shop opened by Globacom had become an instant international outlet as it would serve the needs of people from Nigeria and other countries traversing the border daily.
The Chairman of Badagry West Local Council Development Authority, Hon Bamgboye, who was represented by his deputy, Hon. Agosu Zokro Gbadebo lauded Globacom for taking into consideration the interest of the people of the area by opening shop in Seme. He expressed the preparedness of the Council to support Globacom at all times in serving the people well.
