Abuja - The sponsors of the upcoming Nigeria Oil and Gas Industry Games (NOGIG) called on participants to practise fair play.

The company said it was glad to sponsor the event as part of its support for the promotion of sports in the country in particular and Africa in general.

“The Games is to strengthen the bond of unity and friendship amongst personnel in the Oil and Gas Industry which is widely adjudged the mainstay of the Nigerian economy. We urge participants, contingents and supporters, to get maximum value from the Games,” the company stated.

It added that as ardent believers in the axiom that a sound mind resides in a sound body.

“We have been in the vanguard of support for rapid sports development on the African continent, whilst providing the bandwidth requirements for businesses through our Glo 1 international submarine cable. We urge stakeholders in the Oil and Gas Industry to further avail themselves of the numerous benefits offered by Glo 1 and Glo’s world class mobile and data services,” said Globacom.
