Orange Group celebrates World Health Day with a Commitment to a Healthier Tomorrow

In celebration of World Health Day, Orange Group, an innovative fast-moving consumer goods leader, has reaffirmed its commitment to advancing health and wellness with the launch of the pocket-friendly immune booster, Herbasip. This announcement is in alignment with the 2024 World Health Day theme, “My health, my right” which champions the universal right to health, emphasizing the critical need for every person, regardless of location, to access and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

According to the Orange Group Media and Communications Director, Uchenna Ezenna, “At Orange Group, championing innovative, accessible, and cost-effective healthcare solutions has always been at the core of our mission. With the introduction of Herbasip, we continue our legacy as a trailblazer in health and wellness.”

A World Health Organization (WHO) 2020 report reveals a heightened global awareness of health challenges. This includes concerns about pandemics, antibiotic resistance, the rise of chronic diseases, and the impact of stress on our immune systems.

Adding to this challenge, a 2021 World Bank report highlights the financial burden of healthcare. Even before the pandemic, healthcare costs pushed over half a billion people into poverty. This situation likely worsened, underlining the critical need for accessible and affordable healthcare solutions.

The most rewarding part to us is the accessibility to the everyday Nigerian, Uchenna Ezenna explained, “It’s not just about providing an innovative product, but ensuring that it reaches every corner of Nigeria. We aim to break down barriers to health equity, making sure that Herbasip is not only affordable but also easily obtainable for every Nigerian, regardless of their economic or social status.”

Enriched with a potent blend of natural herbs, Herbasip is meticulously formulated to bolster the body’s defenses against diseases, keeping it resilient and healthy. Herbasip is affordable and stands as a testament to Orange Group’s commitment to making health a priority for everyone, affirming the belief that good health should not be a privilege but a right, in line with the message of World Health Day 2024.

NCC, NBS data show Glo contributed the highest in telecom industry growth in 2020

A new report from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has revealed that Globacom recorded the biggest percentage increase in data users, thereby contributing mostly to the growth chart in the telecommunications industry in Nigeria in year 2020.

This correlates with an earlier report by  the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) which showed that Globacom led  in internet subscriber growth in the telecommunications sector in the third quarter of 2020. 

NCC indicated on its website that the telecommunications  sector grew by 22percent with  28,145,458 new internet users from 125,728,328 at the end of December 2019 to 153,873,786 in December, 2020. 

According to the commission, this growth in internet subscriptions and consequently in telecom sector culminated in  the quick recovery of the nation’s   economy from its recent  recession with a contribution of 12.45% to the Gross Domestic Product. 

Globacom garnered the most percentage growth from  28,934,439 data users at the end of 2019 to 40,106,659 at the end of 2020, an addition of 11,172,220 new data subscribers or 39% growth in its data subscriber base. The growth outstrips the 22 percentage growth recorded in the sector in the year under review.

MTN was  second on the growth chart with a   21% growth, while Airtel recorded 20% increase to place third with  9mobile suffering  a loss with a 12% drop in its  data subscription figure.

Industry watchers disclosed that Glo data services are buoyed by the huge capacity international submarine cable called Glo1, a wholly owned facility that brought unprecedented bandwidth from Europe to Nigeria and other West African countries.

 It is the only  operator in Nigeria with integrated domestic and International network, while its high speed optic fibre network spans thousands kilometers covering almost the entire Nigerian landmass.

Globacom has a history of consistent network upgrade  which is recognized as one of the factors which  enhances data service delivery to Glo  subscribers who enjoy  attractive data packages with unmatched value.
