Independent Newspapers ‘Man of the Year,’ His Excellency, Senator David Mark, President of  the Senate of the Federal Re public of Nigeria will on Thursday, May 21, be honoured by the Board and Management of Independent Newspapers Limited in an investiture billed for Nicon Luxury Hotel, Abuja.

The investiture is in recognition of the excellence with which he has managed the affairs of the Senate in the last eight years. Since becoming the president of the Senate 0n June 6, 2007, amidst the volatility that is the hallmark of the National Assembly, Senator David held forth in  the Upper Chambers with exemplary maturity and historic success.

In the private sector business category, the ‘Business  of the Year Award’ goes to Globacom, which is being honoured as Telecommunications Company of  the Year 2014. The company has soared high in its aspiration to build Africa’s biggest and best telecommunications network with millions of subscribers in Nigeria, Republic of Benin and Ghana.

Globacom made history as the first indigenous company to build a high capacity submarine fibre –optic cable, popularly known as Glo-1, the first successful submarine cable from the United Kingdom to Nigeria with the attendant high increase in internet speeds and download rates with resultant significant improvement in online technologies. It is for this and other reasons such as social and community development efforts that Independent Newspapers Limited has elected Globacom Limited as the Telecommunication Company of the Year 2014.

Also being honoured alongside Mavid Mark and Globacom Limited is Contec Global Group.
