A 19-year-old undergraduate received a three-bedroom house as part of the record-breaking Festival of Joy promo from telecom giant Globacom, which yesterday kept its promise to reward its devoted users with fantastic rewards.
The first of the presentations was held yesterday in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, where 19-year-old Ibrahim Akindele, the winner of the three-bedroom apartment, gushed with excitement and unbridled joy.
The Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Mr Debo Ogundoyin, and other important state legislators were present for the magnificent occasion.
Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, a student studying Science Laboratory Technology at the 200-level claimed his initial reaction to the good news was skepticism.
He admitted, “I was in shock, I believed it was just someone playing jokes, but I knew from past events that Globacom is a firm that awards enormous prizes to its customers,” adding, “I assumed it was just someone playing pranks.” But he added that his parents will be the ones to decide how to use the residence.
His 54-year-old mother, Mrs Funmilayo Akindele, was also brimming with palpable joy as she said, “The house will be a place of refuge for Ibrahim and his older brother while we will be coming to spend weekends with them”.
Mr Akeem Yusuf, Head of Operations for Globacom in the West Territory, stated that the promotion is yet another chance for the business to reward its subscribers with fantastic rewards in keeping with its dedication to the ongoing empowerment of its consumers.
“Our commitment to the total well-being of our subscribers and the realization that shelter is one of the key needs of man have fuelled our desire to help some of them have houses of their own through this promo. This kind of prize is unprecedented as no brand has ever offered or presented such to their customers before”, he stated.
Ibadan will be hosting another prize presentation on Thursday, November 17, where lucky winners will go home with prizes including a brand new Kia car, power generators, sewing machines, and rechargeable fans among other prizes.
Glo Festival of Joy will make 20 lucky subscribers landlords/landladies, just as 24 of them will win brand new cars across major cities of the nation as well as other prizes, including
power generators, sewing machines and rechargeable fans, among other prizes.
Subscribers who wish to participate in the promo have been enjoined to dial the dedicated short code *611# and recharge with N500 weekly to stand a chance to win the rechargeable fan, N2,500 monthly recharge for the Sewing Machine, N5,000 monthly recharge for the generator, N10,000 monthly recharge for the car and N20,000 data subscription during the promo period for the house. The more the recharges, the higher the chance of winning.
