Amusan, who is the first female athlete signed by the telecommunication giant, is the first Nigerian ever to win Gold at the World Athletics Championships after racing to a stunning world record time of 12.06s. She also won Gold at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
Speaking at the unveiling, Amusan promised to be a worthy Ambassador of Glo, saying Globacom has a history of rewarding hard work.
According to her, “Globalcom is a company that I’ve always admired. And I’m delighted to have this opportunity to work with Globacom. As we all know, Globacom has a long history of rewarding excellence and empowering people. I am happy to join a long list of stars like Anthony Joshua, Mikel Obi, and Osaze Odemwingie among others. As a global ambassador, I hope to mentor and inspire younger people to achieve their goals.
“I’m going to do my very best to be a good representative of the company and use that to inspire the next generation. However, I am grateful to the chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, for giving me this amazing opportunity. And thanks to everyone that has made it possible. And I’m also thankful to everyone that has taken the time out to attend this event.”
She advised Nigerian youths to be focused and go for whatever they set to achieve.
