A 52-year-old Manager with a first-generation bank, Anthony Ukpu, has taken home a brand new car he won in the ongoing Glo Festival of Joy promo in Warri, Delta State. The car was presented to him by the Chairman of, the Delta State Assembly Committee on Health, Hon. Augustine Uroye, and by Glo officials. Many other Nigerians also went home with different other prizes won in the promo, including power-generating sets, sewing machines and rechargeable fans.
Ukpu, a native of Isoko South Local Government Area in Delta State, disclosed that he joined the promo about three weeks ago by dialling *611#. “Since then I have been recharging consistently, with 5,000 being the minimum. My target was either the house or the car. Last week, while talking to my wife, I prophesied that I will win either a house or a car in the ongoing Glo promo by December. Today I still recharged with 5,000 in the morning and by noon I got a call from Glo that I won a car. “Tell me which network is better than Glo? They are really taking care of Nigerians. I don’t regret being on the Glo network since inception and making its SIM my number one contact”, Ukpu enthused.
Toyin Aiyenuberu, a Warri-based Technician who won a generator, expressed gratitude to God and to Globacom for the early Christmas gift. Similarly, a winner of a sewing machine, Rachael Pessu, said “it is a thing of joy to win a prize among millions of other subscribers. To God be the glory”. She promised to deploy the sewing machine for the fashion business”.
Also Jolomi Ateto, a nurse, who took home a rechargeable fan, said it will be useful to keep the heat to the minimum in this hot season. She praised Globacom for “always giving Nigerians the opportunity to win prizes every year”.
Speaking after the presentation, Hon. Augustine Uroye lauded Globacom for empowering Nigerians through the promo, adding that, “what they promised is being presented to the people across the country, including in Warri here today. They have done well and I encourage Nigerians to keep recharging to be able to win more prizes, especially the houses and cars”.
