The 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.

 

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.

 

Adenuga was responsible for the laying of international submarine cable, Glo 1, to Africa directly from Europe, 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.

 

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.
