The 2023 Titans of Tech Awards will be Chaired by former Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Femi Pedro.
Don Pedro Aganbi noted that thee story of Dr. Mike Adeniyi Ishola Adenuga Jr. (CON), Chairman of Globacom Limited and the Mike Adenuga Group, perhaps one of the biggest business empires in Africa, can fittingly be summed up as the story of the triumph of African enterprise.
Dr. Adenuga sits atop what is generally regarded as one of the continent’s largest business empires comprising oil and gas, telecoms, aviation, banking and real estate.
In telecoms, Globacom is not only the most innovative network in Nigeria, it is also the fastest growing in Africa and the Middle East.
Dr Adenuga was responsible for the laying of an international submarine cable, Glo 1, from Africa directly to Europe with dedicated extension to USA which has ushered in a new era of prosperity in Africa as it has provided excess bandwidth to all the cities connected to the cable, and leading to a much faster and robust connectivity for voice, data and video.
Nigerians would probably remember him more for his timely intervention in the telecommunications arena, where he seems to hold the aces that determine the pace of play. Globacom’s historic introduction of Per Second Billing and subsequent crashing of SIM price did not only skew the GSM equation in its favour but has continued to hold a lot of positive implications for the fledgling Nigerian telecommunications sector.
