On his part, the senior Marketing Manager, Opera News, Chukwudiebele Enyi we have various categories of gift raging from voucher, recharge card, phones, car, among others. The choice of the car instead of giving millions to people is to have something people can look back on and remember it as a rewarding thing. People can lavish a N100m if we decide to give it out but car has a tangible appearance and for them to go around with it to use it to preach the gospel to other people.
