Governor Chimaroke Nnamani has described Rainbownet Limited as a fast growing communication outfit that has helped in providing employment to the teeming population of the South East and Nigeria in general.

The governor made this observation during the official unveiling of the company’s new brand icons and services.

Governor Nnamani, who spoke through his Deputy, Chief Okechukwu Itanyi, noted that Rainbownet limited was the pioneer information and communication technology (ICT) provider in the South East region, adding that Enugu State was happy to have its headquarters located in the state capital.

The State Chief Executive enjoined Rainbownet Limited to strive harder to improve their services, provide more employment opportunities, and congratulated the management for their sense of choice and aesthetics in choosing their new colours and icons, reminding them that they were in a competitive market.

Unveiling the new Rainbownet brand icon, the Minister of Communications, Chief Cornelius Adebayo, who performed the task through his Director of Finance and Supply, Dr. A. G. Salami, expressed surprise at the low tariff of the network, saying that this singular consideration needed to be applauded.

Chief Adebayo pledged that the ministry would continue to give the company all the needed support to deliver quality services to the people.
