In the past three days, I have received a deluge of messages and enquiries from well-appreciated people in different parts of the world who wanted to confirm if indeed I had returned to Globacm.
I wish to confirm that it is true. I thank everyone, particularly my friends and associates in the media who called or sent messages to wish me well and assure me of their full support. I was stupefied when a media chief said last night, “you’re one of the best in your field.” I cannot thank you all enough for the confidence you have reposed in me. As we embark on this journey, I urge you all to please stand by me and this great brand which definitely has a lot of spectacular offerings for its subscribers.
Some reports have also been published about this development. I wish to request that as it has been my tradition over the years, the focus should be on the corporate brand and not on my personality.
I have also had to set the records straight regarding a report in an online publication, “The Capital”, a copy of which has been reporoduced below. I thank you all once again for your kindness and unbounded thoughtfulness and I wish to thank the publisher of The Capital who has promised to make the necessary amendments.
Re: Second Time Lucky… Bode Opeseitan Gets A Second Chance, Returns To GLOBACOM
My attention has been drawn to a story published by your online publication “The Capital” with the above topic and I wish to correct some misrepresentations therein.
Kindly note that the issue of being given a second chance as stated in the publication did not arise. My return to Globacom was a mark of respect for Mr. Chairman, whom, like you observed in the publication, I saw more like a father than an employer. I will not like to go further than that out of utmost respect for the organisation.
Secondly, I was not Head of Sponsorship as you reported. I was Director of PR, Events and Promotions as at the time I left.
Thirdly, I did not leave “almost one year ago” as you reported, I left in July 2017, one and a half years ago.
Fourthly, I did not jettison SA&B Mega Resources as you published, an organisation founded by thoroughbred professionals who are some of the best in their fields from different parts of the world. I left for a purpose while the other promoters of the business have continued with the good work.
By my nature, I ordinarily would not have responded to this veiled polemic but it is important to set the records straight.
I thank you for your support while looking forward to further support for Globacom in its quest to consolidate its position as a revolutionary institution in Africa’s telecommunications milieu.
