The first car winner in the on-going Festival of Joy loyalty reward promo by Globacom received the key to a brand new Kia car in Ibadan on Thursday, November 17, 2022.

Mrs. Adeife Abiodun-Adeyemi, a 34-year old events planner, led the pack of Glo subscribers who received their prizes at a well-attended ceremony held at the new ultra-modern Gloworld at Ring Road, Ibadan. The event was attended by the Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Lawal; Commissioner for Trade and Investments, Chief Bayo Lawal; the Chairman, Ibadan South West Local Government, Honourable Kehinde Akande, and some members of the state executive council.

Speaking after receiving the keys to the car, Mrs. Abiodun-Adeyemi, said the prize came as a pleasant surprise. “Glo has always been my business hotline, so I usually recharge heavily on the number even before the promo. When I learnt that Glo was rewarding its subscribers, I opted in by dialing *611# and also intensified my recharges. I am happy that my loyalty to Globacom over the years  has paid off”, she said.

Other winners of various other choice items including power generating sets, sewing machines and rechargeable fans also received their prizes at the presentation ceremony. Mr. Temitope Salako, who operates a business centre, and who won a sewing machine said Globacom had provided an answer to his prayer through the prize as he planned to give the sewing machine to his sister who is a fashion designer.

For Oyindamola Alabi, who is majoring in Agriculture at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, “it was a lie until I received my prize and I must say I am grateful to Glo”. Dolapo Aremu, a mother of one who won a rechargeable fan, thanked Globacom for the privilege of winning the prize.

The Oyo State Deputy Governor, Chief Adebayo Lawal, in his remarks lauded Globacom for empowering its subscribers through its loyalty reward promos, saying that the company had made life better for its subscribers, not only through its products and services, but also through its various social responsibility schemes.

Speaking at the event, Globacom’s Regional Sales Manager in Oyo State, Mr. Ikechukwu Onuekwusi, disclosed that the  next prize-presentation event would be held in Abuja  on Friday, and that from there Globacom would take the Festival of Joy to other cities around the country.

He advised voice and data subscribers who wish to participate in the promo to dial the dedicated short code *611# and keep recharging (voice and data) during the promo period in order to qualify to win any of the prizes on offer. “The more they recharge, the higher their chances of winning”, he added.

Court Denies Binance Executive Tigran Gambaryan Bail




Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court Abuja, on Friday, refused to grant bail to an executive of Binance Holdings Limited, Tigran Gambaryan.

Justice Nwite held that Gambaryan is likely to jump bail if granted to him.

The company and its executive were arraigned on a five-count charge bordering on money laundering before Emeka Nwite, judge of a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Moving an application, Counsel to the Defendant, Mark Mordi, argued that the court had the power to grant bail to the defendant and impose conditions to ensure his presence in court.

The prosecution counsel, Ekele Iheanacho, however opposed the bail application, stating that the defendant is a flight risk.

He stated that the defendant attempted to obtain a new passport, which he claimed was stolen, and this is a suspicious act given the proximity to his colleague’s escape from custody.

He added that the court cannot risk granting Gambaryan bail, especially as he is not attached to any community in Nigeria.

“The fact that the passport of the defendant is with the complainant does not guarantee that he will remain in Nigeria because the defendant is not only an American citizen but also an Armenian citizen by birth.

He urged the court to refuse the application and instead remand him in EFCC custody to ensure his safety and prevent potential flight risk.

Delivering ruling, the judge said several factors including the nature of offence and its severity must be considered when trying to decide whether or not bail should be granted to the defendant applicant.

Justice Nwite agreed with the depositions made by prosecution and was of the view that the applicant will jump bail if bail is granted to him.

He subsequently ordered that the trial be given an accelerated hearing.

After the ruling, the EFCC called its first witness, a staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Why We’re Charging Helicopter Landing Fee – Aviation Ministry




The Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development on Monday said the introduction of helicopter landing levies was in line with global best practices and cost recovery measures.

This is contained in a statement by Odutayo Oluseyi, Head, Press and Public Affairs of the ministry in Lagos.

According to Mr Oluseyi, the ministry recognises the importance of helicopter operations in Nigeria’s aviation industry and is committed to implementing international best practices in helicopter operations.

He said that helicopter landing levies were commonplace in countries such as the US, the United Kingdom, India and various other regions worldwide.

He maintained that Tallahassee International Airport in Florida began implementing helicopter landing levies under Vector Airport Systems, since 1 October 2022.

Mr Oluseyi said helicopter landing levies were common across airfields in the United Kingdom, ranging from major commercial ones, to small general aviation fields.

He added that, typically, helicopter levies matched or exceeded those for fixed-wing aircraft, and varied based on factors like location and services provided.

“The federal government has granted NAEBI Dynamic Concepts Ltd exclusive rights to collect helicopter landing levies in line with the MoU between NAEBI Concept and NAMA (focal Agency), Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

“It is instructive to note that NAMA, under the Act as amended in 2022, is empowered to collect aeronautical revenues in both the upper and lower airspace to support her self-sustainability.

“However, over the years, NAMA has predominantly relied on the upper airspace for her revenue generation.

“Government in her wisdom, having discovered a lacuna on the lower airspace where helicopter operations is dominant, directed NAMA to live up to its responsibilities, to enable them generate enough resources, to sustain their aeronautical architecture, enhance security and surveillance and improve the overall quality of helicopter operations in Nigeria,” he said.

According to Mr Oluseyi, the government is confident that the move will improve capacity, efficiency, safety, security and attract more investments in the aviation industry.
