The Governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has joined the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, in praising the tourism potentials of the Globacom-sponsored Ofala Festival of Onitsha Kingdom.

The duo during the just-concluded 2023 edition of the festival which held at the Ime Obi in Onitsha, Anambra State, over the weekend, poured encomiums on Globacom and other sponsors for turning the event into a global tourism delight.

While Governor Soludo noted that efforts in promoting the festival has complemented government’s efforts in bringing development to the state, the monarch posited that “Globacom as our principal partner has remained steadfast with us even with the present economic challenges. We thank them exceedingly and trust that our mutually beneficial partnership will continue to grow”.

Also speaking at the festival on Sunday, Globacom’s Retail Sales Chief, South East and South South, Augustine-ndu Offor, stated that, by sponsoring Ofala and other key festivals across the country, Glo is empowering communities to preserve and promote their cultural heritage.

According to Offor, the sustained support for cultural festivals such as Ofala has added economic value to the surrounding regions by leading to the development of tourism. He added that it is in line with the vision of empowerment that MoneyMaster Payment Service Bank (MMPSB), a subsidiary of Globacom, was launched this year. MMPSB, through its G kala wallet enables the unbanked and underbanked to use their mobile phones to send, save, collect and deposit their money, thereby empowering the financially excluded in the society. The 8% interest rate per annum on the G Kala savings account is a good demonstration of the added value the company provides its customers.

Globacom started sponsoring Ofala in 2011 and only last year signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the palace to extend the partnership for another three years, from 2022 to 2025.
