How Law graduate emerged house winner in Glo Festival of Joy Promo
“I am still in shock. My head is spinning. It is like a mirage. I opted to take part in the promo
Latest house winner in Glo Festival of Joy promo, Gerald Chukwunonso Okoro, was all shades of joy as keys to his three-bedroom house were presented to him at a colourful event on Friday, January 6, in Enugu.
Okoro disclosed during the presentation ceremony that he was not expecting something so great so early in the new year.. “I am still in shock. My head is spinning. It is like a mirage. I opted to take part in the promo, but with what I have been going through caring for my sister in the hospital, the last thing on my mind was such a call from Globacom”, he said.
He explained that he had just paid for a rented apartment and was anxious about how to raise funds to furnish the apartment before he received the call informing him of his winning. Aside this, his sister had been on admission in the hospital and he had been keeping vigil on her bedside for days until the Glo fortune was announced to him.
“For about a month now, we’ve been going through a lot attending to her in the hospital. It is Globacom that has brought such good news to brighten the horizon. This is the first joyous thing giving us hope this year”, he said.
Enugu State Commissioner for Science and Technology, Chief Obi Kama, who was special guest at the event gave kudos to Globacom for packaging such a huge subscriber-reward programme. “Globacom has done well having the interest of its subscribers at heart and delivering great prizes to them just for using their lines”, he said.
Similarly, Oliver Maduka, who is the Coordinator of the Enugu Zonal Office of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), disclosed that the NLRC had been closely monitoring the promo and was satisfied with how Globacom had displayed integrity in the handling of the promo.
“What Glo is doing is second to none. Glo has been doing its promos the right way. I am so excited for the winner because he emerged from a very transparent process. It is a level playing field and anyone can win”, he said.
Globacom’s Regional Manager, Mr Mike Ehumadu, explained that apart from the houses, the Glo Festival of Joy promo is also offering thousands of other amazing prizes including brand new cars, power generators, sewing machines and rechargeable fans to subscribers.
According to him, “To participate in this promo, voice and data customers just have 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 data subscription(s) of at least N20,000 during the promo period for the house”.
