Globacom says it decided to endow five students each from the Federal University of Technology, Akure, (FUTA) and the University of Port Harcourt because of their outstanding performances in their academics.
Each of the students who had the highest CGPA points in each of the tertiary institutions received advanced smartphones and Glo data packages in an ongoing nation-wide campaign to equip tertiary institutions with IT solutions.
Management of the two institutions also received five routers each to boost learning through research and teaching.
Olusegun Oguntuase, Globacom’s state manager, Ondo State, called on members of the University community to explore the opportunity of the company’s ongoing week-long data clinic within the school to upgrade to Glo 4G to avail themselves of its download and upload speed advantage.
According to him, the Glo 4G is available in all tertiary institutions in the country.
Those who got smartphones included  Lawal Adeshile of the Department of Physiology; Adebiyi Emmanuel of the Department of Building Technology; Phillip Onochiemume, Department of Accounting; Omolara Bakare, Physics Department; Okunoye Olayinka of the Department of Metallurgical and Materials and Ogundeji Emmanuel of Urban and Regional Planning Department all from the Federal University of Technology.
