CEM REPORT, HUMANITARIAN | “I was moved to tears when I was told I won a car”, says the latest winner of a brand new Kia car in Globacom’s on-going Festival of Joy promo,
Richard Ijah, has thanked Globacom for initiating the promo which gave him the opportunity to win a new car.
According to the 37-year-old Jos-based mineworker who spoke at the presentation ceremony in Jos on Tuesday, January 10, “I was working at a minefield that is located in a deep forest in Jos and initially thought the call coming from Globacom to notify me of the win was a scam. For some reason I picked and was informed that I had won a car. After rounds of me pushing back at the caller, as I wasn’t sure of the authenticity of the call, I finally agreed to close for the day and go to the Glo office to confirm. I was moved to tears to discover it was true”,
Ijah who was accompanied to the event by his wife, four young children and friends expressed his appreciation to Globacom for delighting him and other Nigerians through the Festival of Joy promo.
At the event, other prizes including generators, sewing machines and rechargeable fans were also presented to winners who expressed their gratitude to the Glo network. 21-year-old Mercy Michael, who won a sewing machine said, “I can’t wait to get home and present this sewing machine to my elder sister who sows, as she has sacrificed a lot for me through the years and I’ve never been able to do anything important for her. Thank you Glo for giving me this opportunity to show her how grateful I am.”
Commander A.B. Barude, the Plateau State Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps who was the special guest at the event paid tribute to Globacom for always taking care of its subscribers and showcasing its commitment to corporate citizenship.
Mr. David Ameh, Globacom’s Regional Manager, Jos, who advised Nigerians to make utmost use of the opportunities inherent in Festival of Joy promo said, “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, and N10,000 monthly recharge for the car and N20, 000 for the house”.
