Glo turns Woke landlord in Festival of Joy promo
On Friday, December 8, 2022, 26-year-old Chimeka Woke became the latest house winner in Globacom’s Festival of Joy consumer promotion.
For Woke, the announcement could not have come at a better time, as he was beginning to get worried about how to raise enough money to pay for an apartment to move his wife and 11-month-old baby into. Globacom came to the rescue of the Ikwerre, Rivers State-born legal practitioner by making him a landlord. He was presented the keys to the apartment at a colourful ceremony at his new residence.
As he explained, he had just dropped off his recuperating father in the hospital for a physiotherapy session and was waiting when his phone rang only to be told that he had won a three-bedroom apartment.
“I literally abandoned my dad and ran to the Glo office on Aba road just to be sure I heard well,” he said, adding that it sounded too good to be true for someone staying in his father’s Boys Quarters to be called and told he had just won a house.
During the presentation, Ahoada Council Chairman, Barrister Ben Eke, said that Globacom has established a reputation for giving back to society. “For giving people opportunity to own a house, I must congratulate you. I am going to be your ambassador in propagating your good works,” he said.
Mr Walson Dambo, the Head of Licensing and Operations at the Port Harcourt Zonal Office of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), said the commission has been following the promo to ensure the right of consumers and commended the telecom’s outfit for its commitment to the success of the promo.
The Glo Festival of Joy promo is offering 20 houses and thousands of other amazing prizes including 24 brand new cars, power generators, sewing machines and rechargeable fans to subscribers to reward their loyalty.
