The first car winner in Globacom’s Joy Unlimited Extravaganza promotion was, yesterday, unveiled at a ceremony in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. He is 33-year-old Abia State-born civil engineer, Ikenna Adiele, who drove home a brand new Kia Rio saloon car.
His joy was also shared by 80 other subscribers, who were presented with different items such as television sets, refrigerators and generators which they won in the customer-reward programme.
The excited star prize winner said: “Glo has lifted me up. I am very excited and I don’t know what to say. I saw the advert and I decided to participate by dialing the ‘611’ promo code after which I started recharging my phone. Lo and behold, after about two weeks, I got a call from Glo customer service number 121, and after confirming my identity, I was told I won a brand new Kia car. I could not believe my ears. Glo has made me a car owner. This is the biggest gift in my life and my first car. I will forever remain with Glo network. I will keep the car for my personal use.”
There were also commendations from winners of the household items, including Paschal Oyedo and Paul Okoh.
According to Oyedo, a Port Harcourt-based lawyer, who won a generator, “I did not believe it until I got to Glo office and saw the generator. This is exciting. I will take the generator at home to the office and keep this brand new one for the enjoyment of my family at home. Glo has been good to Nigerians.”
On his part, Okoh, a retired civil servant, now a farmer in Port Harcourt, who won a generator, said: “I am overjoyed. I have always believed in Glo. They always give quality prizes. I received a Glo refrigerator today (yesterday). Kudos to Globacom.”
