Former Director of Public Relations, Events and Promotion at Globacom, Mr. Bode Opeseitan, has stated his reason for returning to his erstwhile employer, while correcting erroneous impression created by a section of the media that he left Globacom in crisis.
According to the ebullient dude, his leaving Globacom was personal and returning to the Telecom giant was borne out of respect for the Globacom owner, Chief Mike Adenuga.
His statement is presented below;
“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 Globacom.
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 (that bothers on my return to Globacom)…
The issue of being given a second chance did not arise. My return to Globacom was a mark of respect for Mr. Chairman, whom I saw more like a father than an employer…
I did not leave “almost one year ago” as you reported, I left in July 2017, one and a half years ago. And I did not jettison SA&B Mega Resources, 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…”
