Indigenous GSM Provider, Globacom, has urged Nigerians to support the incoming administration in order to restructure the economy and provide the people with dividends of democracy.

The company made the statement on the occasion of the country’s 16th anniversary of Democracy Day and the successful transition of power to a new civilian government.

It urged Nigerians to support the new administration in its task of rebuilding the country according to the dream of the founding fathers of the country.

Globacom observed in its goodwill message that democracy has taken firm root in the country in the last 16 years as evident in the outcome of the last general elections.  The election according to one of the leading GSM operators was the first time an incumbent government would pass on the reins to an opposition party in an election it supervised.

The GSM operator commended the outgoing President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for his patriotism and efforts to deepen democracy in the country. It further congratulated the incoming administration of President Muhammadu Buhari on the success of his bid to head a democratic government.

Globacom congratulated the Nigerian people as well as all the electoral and security institutions for the largely peaceful way they conducted the last general elections, noting that the process has significantly raised the profile of the country across the world.

“Democracy by its nature is geared towards building an egalitarian society where fairness and equity thrive. We wish the Buhari administration divine wisdom and fortitude in its determination to move the nation forward. We believe that the new government would engender a renewed burst of patriotism and drive to make the country better in all ramifications by maximizing its potentials,” the statement added.

The company charged all to uphold the unity of the country in their thoughts, deeds and actions to strengthen democracy and enhance national development.

The GSM operator promised that it would continue to offer Nigerians innovative and affordable telecommunications products and services to help empower the Nigerian people and stimulate socio-economic development of the country.
