Another house winner emerges in Glo Festival of Joy promo
An Enugu-based law graduate, Gerald Chukwunonso Okoro, on Friday,
January 6, joined the growing list of Glo subscribers who are becoming
house owners in Globacom’s Festival of Joy promotion.
Okoro, who emerged from a draw held earlier on Thursday, January 5, at
Gloworld, Polo Park, Enugu, received the keys to a three-bedroom house
from Glo officials and Enugu State Commissioner for Science and
Technology, Chief Obi Kama.
The overjoyed house winner raced to Gloworld immediately he was called
and informed that he had won a house in the Glo promo. He said that he
had just paid for a rented apartment and was worried about how to
mobilize funds to furnish the place. Besides, his sister had been on
admission in the hospital and he had been there with her for days until
the fateful call came from Globacom.
“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. Every member of the family is delighted”, he stated.
Okoro said God had used Globacom to lighten his burden. “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”, the lawyer disclosed.
Speaking at the presentation, Chief Obi Kama, who was the special guest,
commended Globacom for changing the lives of its customers through such
a unique 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 observed.
Similarly, the Coordinator of the Enugu Zonal Office of the National
Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Mr Oliver Maduka, said the NLRC
had been keenly following the promo and was impressed with Globacom for
staying true to its promise to subscribers.
“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”,
Globacom’s Regional Manager, Mike Ehumadu, said the company was also
offering other amazing prizes in the promotion such as power generators,
sewing machines and rechargeable fans.
“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”, Ehumadu added.
