How pay TV programme is changing participants’ lives
GOtv Sabiman is a programme that tutors participants on the rudiments of service activation, response to customer enquiries and resolution of issues about GOtv services. Participants receive practical training from both internal and external facilitators on how to handle various enquires by customers and eventually grow on to become their own bosses, which is the main objective of the programme.
For Francis Oladejo, GOtv Sabiman has immensely improved the well-being of him and his family. The usually reserved man also stated that his meteoric rise through the ladder has helped him to inspire other GOtv Sabimen in his region to handle responsibility with ease.
“I have stationed each Sabiman in my region in strategic locations where they manage as business owners, taking responsibility for that area on anything with regards to GOtv, visiting subscribers in the area from house to house at least once a week and creating a good relationship with them until they become a regular subscriber.”
As he explained, he sees it as a privilege to pass all that he has learnt to others around him and he is passionate about the success of other Sabimen, adding, “The project has improved my level of income and enhance my family’s financial stability. I will forever be grateful to MultiChoice Nigeria for the opportunity as I look forward to greater heights as I continue to contribute my best to the project.”
Umar Ahmed, a GOtv Sabiman switched from being a teacher to a GOtv advocate. Three years down the line, the Ikorodu-based Sabiman has grown so big to the extent that he is considering expanding his business.
According to him, “I have learnt a lot from the scheme and I’m aspiring to become a partner to MultiChoice by having my own store. I have been on the project for over three years and I can tell you I have been able to meet my needs and that of my family. Sabiman project rocks.”
The story of Adama Gift Ohia is, perhaps, the most emotive of the lot. Ohia was unaware of GOtv Sabiman until it was introduced to her by her mother, who had apparently gone to a MultiChoice outlet to make some enquiries but she was suddenly attracted by a set of young persons who were colourfully clad in green shirts.
According to Ohia, “The coach enlightened my mother to the extent that she forgot the reason for her visit to the office. She took much interest in the project because it concerned me, who was at home and needed a job. My mother told me a whole lot about the project and encouraged me to enroll in the scheme. I visited the office, met with one of the coaches and expressed my interest. The coach educated me about all I needed to know and then I was recruited in January 2017.”
Through GOtv Sabiman, Nigerians are inspired and taught to be economically viable and independent.
